Favorite Political Scandal of 2008: Eliot Spitzer Is Client # 9

The race for CitizenSugar readers' favorite political scandal was scandalously close, but NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer's fall from power after sleeping with a call girl beat out Sarah Palin's teen daughter's pregnancy by a score of 34 percent of votes to 32 percent.

Former sheriff of Wall Street Spitzer ended up facing zero federal crime charges related to his paid-for trysts with Ashley Dupré as Client No. 9, but his crimes of the heart did cost him his job as governor.

Eliot made the headlines again this week, after commenting on his life as an op-ed columnist. While at Slate's holiday party, which went down at a former massage parlor called "Happy Ending," Spitzer said about his new gig: "It sucks. I used to be governor of New York." Well now ex-Gov. Spitzer can add this Sugar Award to his resumé!
