Client #9 Is Back In The Game, Baby

Meet the media's latest financial columnist:
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer, who resigned earlier this year over his involvement in a prostitution ring, will write a column for online magazine Slate.com about the economy and financial regulation.

The column, which will be called "The Best Policy," will appear every other week, Slate Group Editor Jacob Weisberg told Reuters in an interview.
Excuse me, but what does this guy know about finance? He's the only Jew ever to have paid above retail price for something, for crying out loud.

Oh well, at least this time he'll only be able to screw over his new employers at Slate.com.

So, will Spitzer write the only column by him that I am interested in reading? The answer is maybe:
David Plotz, who edits Slate.com, said Spitzer has not said whether he will write about the events leading to his resignation, but, "if he chooses to write about that in Slate, we'd be happy to publish it."


UPDATE: Here's his first column, and, no, it is not about hookers. It's about why the bailouts are a bad idea. Maybe there is hope for the guy yet.
