This could be a bit of a stretch, but I am going there anyhow.

According to the very early reporting on the Spitzer disaster, the feds have records on the N.Y. guv’s use of prostitution services on a Feb. 13 trip to the District. He stayed in a hotel that night, reportedly the Mayflower, and dialed up some services.

Well, if the feds see fit to perhaps prosecute the guy for his misdeeds, they would use something called the Mann Act of 1910, which criminalizes the act of taking someone between the states for the purposes of prostitution.

So Spitzer could be a back-door route to the status that D.C. has deserved for centuries.
