On March 10, 2008, The New York Times reported that New York Govenor Elliott Spitzer had previously patronized a high-priced prostitution service called Emperors Club VIP and met for over two hours with a $1,000-an-hour call girl now known to be a New York City singer going by the name Ashley Alexandra Dupré. A few days later I called my gramma to ask about who knows what and that’s when my gramma gave me her take on the whole Elliott Spitzer thing.
Gramma said… (about Elliott Spitzer’s wife Silda) I wouldn’t have stood there next to him. Embarrasing me like that on the TV. He’d a had to meet me down the street. I’m telling you he wouldn’t have embarrased me like that. No. He’d a had to meet me down the street.
I didn’t get it at the time. I get it now.
