Sex Workers Project | (New York City, March 14, 2008) – Eliot Spitzer resigned from his position as Governor of New York after being implicated in a prostitution scandal. The irony is that Mr. Spitzer’s office helped pass Anti-Trafficking Legislation in New York and specifically pushed through controversial provisions that we opposed, one enhancing penalties for clients of all prostitutes, and another that made trafficking into all sectors other than prostitution a lesser crime. As advocates for the protection, safety and human rights of sex workers and trafficked persons, we are not interested in Eliot Spitzer’s personal life. However, his resignation provides an opportunity to reflect on the counterproductive and moralistic policies that he supported as Governor.

The identity of the sex worker implicated in this case has already been made public, a situation mirroring many a sex worker's worst nightmare. "Kristen's" exposure may entail not only bring her legal repercussions, but invasion of privacy, financial hardship and social opprobrium. more... 9 Comments
