Man Bites Stripper – You’re Watching CNN

There was a little goof in the frenzy of Eliot Spitzer coverage.
From AP:

CNN said it shouldn’t have used a former U.S. attorney who quit his job after allegedly biting a stripper as an analyst about New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s prostitution scandal.

No mention of Kendall Coffey’s past was made when anchor Tony Harris interviewed him Tuesday on the legal questions surrounding Spitzer’s case. Coffey quit his job in May 1996 after being accused of biting a topless dancer on the arm during a visit to an adult club after losing a big drug case.

Coffey talked on CNN about what kind of charges the New York governor could face. Spitzer is accused of having a high-priced call girl visit his hotel room during a visit to Washington last month.

Hey, if Dr. Phil can be a diet guru – we don’t see the big deal there.

Spitzer resigned today. The LA Daily News used the AP story to plug their own blog. Apropos? Sure.
