  • Why someone gets dumped from office for having sex is one of the ongoing oddities of American politics. Did the guy really ever do anything bad? And its not even a crime! lol

  • Not uplifting

  • Excellent well presented documentary. Even if you don't follow politics at all this is really interesting to see what temptation can do to what was once an amazingly promising career. 5 stars!

  • Good viewing and sadly very real - shows just how politics is dirty

  • Where to start? This is an important movie/documentary for anyone investing in the share market - which is everyone if you have superannuation. For those who do not know, the title is misleading., as the title refers to the FBI name for the escort who brought down the former Governor of New York. To me, Eliot Spitzer is a true hero but flawed because he was human. Difference between him and Bill Clinton? Eliot made more enemies. Recommended for any share traders.
