Oh Eliot Spitzer, what were you thinking? The Governor from New York admitted yesterday that he had been linked to a prostitution ring and government officials are pushing for him to resign or risk impeachment. But what’s really got our goat is the fact that this is yet another case of a powerful guy with a solid family risking it all for a little fun playing doctor with a hooker.

So our Emily, being a fellow Photoshop wizard, hooked us up! The results, after the jump. [If Celebs Moves To Oklahoma] Keep reading »
