Eliot Laurence Spitzer is an American politician, attorney, and college professor. He served as the 54th Governor of New York for around a year. He had a promising career ahead, which was cut short by the discovery of his frequent use of an escort service following which he was forced to resign. As a youth, Spitzer studied at the Harvard Law School where he worked for Alan Dershowitz, a well-known law professor. He also served as the editor of the Harvard Law Review. Later, he worked for a law firm. He eventually joined the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, where he spent a few years fighting organized crime. As a member of the Democratic Party, Spitzer ran for the post of the State Attorney General, but lost. Years later, he was elected the Governor of New York after he won 69 percent of the vote. However, several months later, the ‘New York Times’ reported that they had discovered him patronizing the service of a prostitute at a fancy hotel in Washington. Spitzer later apologized and stepped down from his post. Since his resignation from the post, he has been working as a television host and an adjunct instructor.
