Well, This Is Awkward, Eliot

Eliot Spitzer.Thumbnail From Governor Eliot Spitzer’s press release announcing New York’s Anti-Human Trafficking Law on May 16, 2007:

“Updating and enhancing our human-trafficking laws to adequately punish the perpetrators of these unspeakable crimes and sufficiently support victims is critically important,” said Governor Spitzer. “New York is finally joining the ranks of other states in ensuring that those who exploit innocent people and children and cause extreme suffering are subject to strict punishment under state law.”

The legislation made New York the 24th state in the nation to have an anti-trafficking law and was heralded as a strong and significant step by the Governor’s office.
