Film casts shamed Spitzer in new light

A new documentary suggests that former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer fell not only by his own doing, but also because he was the victim of overzealous investigators aided by his Wall Street foes.

Eliot Spitzer was talked of as a possible Democratic Party Presidential nominee, but in 2008 a prostitution scandal brought down New York's charismatic governor in dramatic fashion.

There were charges of hypocrisy, because in a previous position Spitzer had prosecuted escort services.

A new documentary, Client 9, suggests that the politician fell by his own doing, but also because he was the victim of overzealous investigators aided by his Wall Street foes. Tom Brook reports.
