Spitzer Documentary “Client 9″: Gov Had Mystery Call Girl as Steady Sex Mate

By Roger Friedman

Former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer was not so involved with hooker Ashley Dupre as we’ve been led to believe by the New York Post and other tabloids.

According to a new documentary, called “Client 9,” Spitzer’s steady call girl used the name “Angelina.” (She is played in the doc by actress Wrenn Schmidt.)

Director Alex Gibney has plenty of other revelations in “Client 9.” which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival last night. In new on camera interviews with Spitzer, he elicits from the disgraced politician an admission. “I brought myself down,” Spitzer says in response to Gibney’s suggestion that it was the governor’s enemies who conspired against him.

In fact, from the dozens of interviews in “Client 9″–it’s a massive documentary that could use a little trimming–Spitzer’s enemies were just laying in wait, readying themselves for a chance to pounce on the crusading liberal’s wars on Wall Street. What does seem clear is that they were often doing more than just waiting. Gibney suggests that the wealthier Wall Street types may have had private detectives dogging Spitzer, looking for dirt.

They sure found it.
