What “crime” did Spitzer commit?

Posted by Jesse on March 13, 2008

This is from the search warrant application:
7. As demonstrated below, the evidence obtained during this investigation includes, among other things, statements of a confidential source who worked with the Emperors Club; statements of an undercover officer; more than 5,000 telephone calls and text messages intercepted pursuant to court authorized wiretaps; more than 6,000 e-mails recovered pursuant to court-authorized search warrants; bank records; travel and hotel records; and physical surveillance.

The (government) banks reported to the IRS, which turned it to the DOJ, and then the Public Corruption Squad.

He will be charged, most likely, with a crime called structuring. It’s a “derivative crime”.

All this is due to unconsitutional laws, some of which are passed as anti-terrorism measures, or in the case of the Bank Secrecy Act: “”have a high degree of usefulness in criminal, tax and regulatory investigations and proceedings.”
One can see how this activity can be used for other reasons than terrorism.
As well as possible alterior motives.

So… just like the Presidential elections, people fail to talk about law and order, but focus on gossip.

    My first inclination is to say no, do not prosecute him because this is really a victimless crime. However, due to Mr. Spitzer’s “Holier than Thou”, sanctimonious approach to others while he was District Attorney, I feel he should be prosecuted (just ask the guys on Wall Street).

    Also, if nothing else, he should be prosecuted for being stupid. You mean to tell me that the most powerful man in one of the largest state economies could not “stash” a few bucks away here and there to pay for his folly? He gets a paycheck and I am sure no one in his family monitors his spending since he rarely has to spend any money.

    No. Not Laser Brain! He creates a dummy company and plows money into it as if no one would notice. You would think he of all people would be aware of the IRS staffers who just sit around all day drinking cappuccinos and studying these types of transactions. And he was an Attorney General?

    Arrest the bum!
