(Newser) – The prostitution agency that once served Eliot Spitzer is hardly happy that the disgraced former governor is getting off, at their expense, Salon reports. Spitzer evaded federal charges for patronizing a prostitution ring, prompting an attorney for one of the agency’s bookers—who is facing 6-16 months in jail—to call him a “much more egregious actor than my client.”

An ex-hooker who now blogs said Spitzer’s is a “typical case of the john being released while the prostitute, or in this case, the agency, gets punished,” and slammed the hypocrisy of the hard-charging former prosecutor who sought to lock up prostitutes: "The whole mess strikes me as a distortion of justice and a sickening waste of resources.” The agency’s founder and manager both face at least 21 months in prison.
