(Newser) – If disgraced New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was ever a Law & Order fan, he probably isn't anymore. Tomorrow’s ripped-from-the-headlines season finale on NBC tells a fictionalized version of the sensational sex scandal that doomed Spitzer’s political career, the New York Post reports. Actor Tom Everett Scott guest-stars as a charming governor who is caught planning a rendezvous with a hooker.
