was it a political prosecution?

Just found this - a Miami Herald article from over the weekend reports that a citizen told the FBI in November that then-New York Governor Eliot Spitzer hooked up with a high-price call girl in Miami.

The citizen? Roger Stone, GOP political operative.

From the Herald article: Stone, known for shutting down the 2000 presidential election recount effort in Miami-Dade County, is a longtime Spitzer nemesis whose political experience ranges from the Nixon White House to Al Sharpton's presidential campaign. His lawyer wrote the letter containing the call-girl allegations after FBI agents had asked to speak to Stone, though he says the FBI did not specify why he was contacted."

Hardly a disinterested tipster. How does this track with the timeline of the Spitzer investigation? The strength of the conspiracy claim grows stronger...

Maybe it's time for Larry Flynt to ask the public to turn in REPUBLICAN types who have cavorted with prostitutes - beyond the known ones like Senator David Vitter and former USAID Administrator Randall Tobias, I mean. But funny, THEY won't be prosecuted by the de facto Bush Administration's Department of Republican Justice.
