No red flags in Spitzer campaign, state expense reports

An Associated Press review of expense reports filed by disgraced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer finds little sign that public or campaign money was used to pay for sexual flings.

Spitzer resigned after federal authorities accused him of being
involved with a call girl operation.

The AP looked at a year's worth of expense reports for Spitzer's
office and his campaign committee. They show lots of travel, but
nothing to suggest he was taking prostitutes along or making
excuses to be alone in a hotel room.

FBI agents accuse Spitzer of arranging a February 13th encounter
with a call girl at Washington's Mayflower Hotel.

There's no evidence that Spitzer's state credit card or his
campaign committee paid for the rooms he booked, suggesting the
governor paid with his own money.

There's no decision on whether Spitzer will be charged in
connection with the call girl case.
