Does That Come With A Free Trip Worth $4500?

Speculation is rampant about what a $5000 prostitute will get you. I doubt very much the sex is that good (but what do I know, right?). You’d want several things probably: looks, presentability, assurance of cleanliness (ahem), exclusivity and most of all silence. As I wrote in the comments earlier, you don’t buy a prostitute with $5000. You buy her tongue.

As for Spitzer, it looks like he spent $4300 for the night in D.C. with Kristen, his “regular girl.” Only $2600 was for her. The rest was suggested to him by the club’s “operators”:

He had sent over a large deposit of money by mail, but the package was taking its time to get through the US mail. Meanwhile, Spitzer was trying to arrange for “Kristen” to take the train down from NY and meet him at a hotel in DC.As the time for the appointment neared, the cash still hadn’t arrived. But the Emerald [I think they mean Emperor] Club’s operators noted that the governor had some credit in his account: $400. Now, that would buy you a real good time in our neighborhood, but Eliot was looking for the royal treatment, and it was going to cost him $2,600.

Hey, why don’t you hit the ATM, Spitzer was told, and not only pull out enough to cover Kristen’s $2,600, but give her an additional $1,500 so that he’d have some cash on the books and this wouldn’t happen next time.

I wonder how easy it is for someone so susceptible to blackmail to say “no” when his pimp asks for a couple of grand “for your account”?

Even more wasteful speculation: If you had $4,500 that you had to spend on entertainment for a single night, what would you do with it? I’m pretty sure I’d just take a drive to Vegas. But I’m sure that you guys are much more creative than me.

So, what’s it going to be?
