The Emperors Club VIP that "rocked the political career of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer (aka Client 9) and tarnished his 'Mr. Clean' image, is a call-girl business that arranged sex between wealthy men and more than 50 prostitutes in New York, Washington, Los Angeles, Miami, London and Paris, according to U.S. federal prosecutors. The Brooklyn-based club's website, which went offline after its operators were busted, displays photographs of scantily clad women with their faces hidden. It also shows hourly rates depending on whether the prostitutes were rated from one diamond to seven diamonds. ... The website ranked the prostitutes on a scale of one to seven "diamonds." A three-diamond woman, for example, could command a fee of $1,000 per hour. A seven-diamond woman cost more than $3,000 an hour. ... The club motto was: 'Every client is an Emperor.' [1]

Ashley Alexandra Dupré is the current name of Ashley Youmans, aka Kristen, implicated as a call girl of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, according to the New York Times. [2]

Equality Now statement, 3/11/08

"It is painfully ironic that Governor Spitzer, who was one of the strongest political voices against the commercial sexual exploitation of women, not only in New York but across the nation, may have been himself involved in buying a woman for prostitution. Governor Spitzer led the fight against human trafficking and sex tourism, spearheading the effort that led New York to adopt the strongest anti-trafficking law in the country." [3]
