Eliot Laurence Spitzer (born June 10, 1959) is a former New York State Attorney General, the current Governor of New York, a self-professed "steamroller," an eager but sometimes "unsafe" customer of prostitutes, and a dick.
Spitzer was born and raised in the Bronx borough of New York City, an area composed mostly of poor African-Americans, with a small segment of wealthy whites. Spitzer is not African-American.
Some children that are born wealthy and privileged do not lord their advantages over others and believe that what is really a matter of chance was somehow their due. Spitzer was not this sort of child.
