AG Mukasey Aware of Spitzer Investigation 11 Mar 2008 Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s role in a prostitution scandal grew out of a public corruption inquiry triggered by his movement of large amounts of cash from several bank accounts to one that operated by a call-girl ring, a law enforcement official said Tuesday. Spitzer was the initial target of the investigation and was tracked using court-ordered wiretaps that appear to have recorded him arranging for a prostitute to meet him at a Washington hotel in mid-February, the official said… Attorney General Michael Mukasey was made aware of the investigation because it involved a high-ranking political official the Bush regime was gunning for Joe Wilson er, Admiral Fallon er, Eliot Spitzer.
