According to a conversation in the documents, an Emperors Club employee told Kristen she had heard that Client-9 "would ask you to do things that ... you might not think were safe." Kristen responded by saying: "I have a way of dealing with that. ... I'd be, like, listen dude, you really want the sex?"
Emphasis mine. What that says to me is that Eliot is a bit of a freak, he likes his sex dirty, nasty and maybe a bit painful. So long as everyone involved is cool with it and you respect safe words then I couldn't care less what kind of crazy shit you want to do in your bed room, or the dungeon. But this isn't joe blow (hehehe) down the street (corner) its the governor. It's not the sex or even paying for sex that I care about. It's the lying. Here's how this whole thing should have gone, if we lived in a society that was mature about sex. Ok so married guy, loves his wife but likes some unconventional sex. She isn't down with it, but he's got needs. Rather than ruin their relationship you talk to your significant other and maybe they'll understand. It's not that your in love with another woman its just that you want to do some nasty shit once in a while. Lets say the wife understands, decides to let him have his fun once in a while, better to spend some cash than do it yourself, forget DIY hire a pro. The next critical step if you are a government official who wants to get wild is to go somewhere where it's legal! Duh! You'll still keep it on the DL but if or when you get caught its a minor story, Letterman gets a few easy laughs out of it and its over. Your press conference consists of, "yep I went to Vegas and obviously not everything that happens there stays there, hahaha. This was discussed with my incredible wife beforehand. It was legal, it was safe, and its really none of your business now lets get back to more important issues, like legalized prostitution, I can't afford all these travel bills, hahahaha." Ok so it wouldn't go quite like that but you get the idea.
But thats not how things went so now he's fucked, because he fucked. He'll most likely be forced to resign and you know what I don't feel bad for him. He could have handled his business in a thoughtful way but instead he assumed he could get away with it. fuck 'em.
But in his honor he's a little diddy by the Buzzcocks. hope the quality is ok.
