Spitzer To Attend Therapy For Sex Addiction?

It wasn't his fault at all. Don't you see? He has a sex addiction.

NY Post:

Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer has gone into therapy in the wake of the hooker scandal that swept him out of office, a Spitzer insider told The Post yesterday.

As part of the therapy, Spitzer will explore whether he has an addiction to sex, the source said.


Since then, it has emerged he has had a jones for pricey professional girls going back as far as a decade, and hooked up with "Kristen" - the nom-de-sack of 22-year-old Ashley Alexandra Dupre - several times prior to getting nabbed on tape, sources have said.

Experts say this type of behavior exhibits classic signs of sexual addiction.

"If it becomes an overwhelming urge to the detriment of your professional and familial relationships - if it starts to screw up your life - that is addictive behavior," said Dr. Jeffrey Gardere, a clinical psychologist.

"Someone who displays this sort of behavior could be classified as having a sexual addiction."

Yes. I suppose he could be classified as a sex addict. Or, alternatively, he could be classified as an idiot who made bad decisions and has a healthy sex drive.

Give me a break, Spitzy.
