(Newser) – Hooker? What hooker? Disgraced former governor Eliot Spitzer and wife Silda gave no indication they were ever involved in a prostitution scandal last night, the New York Daily News reports. The Spitzers went to an Education Through Music gala together—their first public outing since the ex-gov’s resignation. They even managed to exchange a few affectionate looks during the half-hour they were in attendance—and they left holding hands.
