Client 9 takes a close look at the rapid rise and dramatic fall of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Nicknamed “The Sheriff of Wall Street,” New York Attorney General Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America’s largest financial institutions. After getting elected Governor by the largest margin in New York’s history, many believed he would be the nation’s first Jewish President. Then, shockingly, the New York Times revealed that Spitzer had been caught seeing prostitutes. His powerful enemies gloated. His supporters questioned the timing: as the Sheriff fell, so did the financial markets, in a cataclysm that threatened to unravel the global economy.
