Melissa Farley, author of Prostitution and Trafficking in Nevada: Making the Connections, and Victor Malarek, author of The Natashas: Inside the New Global Sex Trade, have a great Op-Ed piece published in the New York Times today in regards to Eliot Spitzer's involvement with a prostitution ring. They ask:
"What do we know about the woman Gov. Eliot Spitzer allegedly hired as a prostitute? She was the one person he ignored in his apology. What is she going through now? Is she in danger from organized crime because of what she knows? Is anyone offering her legal counsel or alternatives to prostitution?"
They're not the only ones wondering. Human rights groups that credit Spitzer with what they call "the toughest and most comprehensive anti-sex-trade law in the nation" can't believe Spitzer stands accused of being one of the very men his law was designed to catch and punish. Read more about that here.
