"A documentary about the downfall of fatcat-bothering prosecutor Eliot Spitzer is brilliantly searing"★★★★ – The Guardian
Nicknamed “The Sheriff of Wall Street,” Eliot Spitzer prosecuted crimes by America’s largest financial institutions and some of the most powerful executives in the country. After his election as Governor of New York, many believed Spitzer was on his way to becoming the nation’s first Jewish President. Shockingly, Spitzer’s meteoric rise turned into a spectacular fall when the New York Times revealed that the paragon of rectitude had been caught in a prostitution ring. As his powerful enemies gloated, the Sheriff fell and so did the financial markets. With unique access to the escort world as well as friends, colleagues and enemies of the ex-Governor Client 9 explores the hidden contours of this tale of hubris, sex, and power.
