Eliot Spitzer is the former Governor of New York who was forced out of office when the media uncovered his illicit affair with a high-priced call girl. I wasn’t a big fan, even before his shenanigans surfaced, because he had a holier-than-thou attitude about everyone, especially Wall Street execs.
But I take issue with the Harvard Club’s decision to reject Eliot’s application for membership. (A graduate of Princeton, he went to Harvard Law School.) I assure you, he isn’t the only member of the club with an affair under his or her belt.
What did the club expect to prove? I read that the executive director is a woman. I don’t know what role she plays in the membership selection process–if any– but I wonder if she has a vendetta against Eliot because he cheated on his wife?
