Air America Scandal – Eliot Spitzer Raises The Bar

New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has extracted $240,000 from New York radio station WQHT Hot 97’s parent company, Emmis Communications, for on-air “Smackfest” promotions, in which women slap each other for prizes. The hip-hop station had 24 such contests dating back to April 2004.

Just remember the legal gymnastics pursued by Spitzer assert jurisdiction over the Hot 97 slapping contest – he was investigating potential violations of the states boxing laws – when it comes time for Spitzer to announce the results of his investigation into Air America’s financial plundering of the Gloria Wise Girls & Boys Club.
