Sooooooooooo....anything going on with the Governor of New York lately? Oh, wait, it's the only thing on television for 72 hours now because America loves its sex scandals more than anything in the whole wide world.
Newsweek ran an entertaining recap of some past celebrity johns and their hos this week reminding us of everyone from Jerry Springer (who got caught because he paid the girl by check- ha ha) to Hugh Grant (who had freaking Liz Hurley at home - hello?) to Jimmy Swaggart ( best man tears ever). Click here for all the memories.
That reminds me. Look, I know Eliot Spitzer is a scumbag. I'm not defending him. He deserves to lose his job and his wife. But I have to ask something to make sure I am clear on the particulars of how our crazy prostitution laws work in this country.
If a guy pays a chick fifty bucks to have sex with him then they are both breaking the law and could be arrested, prosecuted and incarcerated. But if the same guy pays the same chick fifty bucks to have sex with him but records it and sells it as a movie, then it is 100% legal and protected by the First Amendment. Do I have that correct?
Okay, okay, if the same guy pays the same chick fifty bucks to have sex with him then they get arrested again and now they are really in trouble as repeat offenders, right? But if that guy takes his lady friend out to a fifty dollar dinner instead and then has sex with her then it's called dating?
My head hurts.
