Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer
- 1 hr 57 min
This 2010 documentary tells of former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's charmed life and brilliant political career, and how his own actions blew it all up and forced his resignation in March 2008. Spitzer had made many enemies as a crusading, moralizing state attorney general. He had busted wrongdoers in the realm of securities fraud and other white collar crime; but he had a secret called the Emperors Club VIP and a favorite call girl called Kristen. After the stunning prostitution scandal faded from the headlines, Spitzer's enemies talked to director Alex Gibney's camera with great pleasure.
