Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer

Writer/director Alex Gibney ("Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room") submits a probing examination of former New York governor Eliot Spitzer's brief, controversial 2007-08 tenure in office. Noted for battling corruption as the state's attorney general, Spitzer found his reputation taking a spectacular nosedive after his relationship with prostitutes was made public. Was he justifiably shamed...or the victim of politics as usual?
