New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was caught on a federal wiretap arranging to meet in a Washington hotel room Feb. 13, 2008, with a prostitute from a call-girl business known as the Emperors Club VIP. Spitzer was not named in the complaint but was referenced as "Client 9," according to law enforcement officials.
