Interesting Note: Emperors' Club Took Advertising

By Published on .

Over at Slate, Josh Levin takes a look at the copy used to pitch the "services" of Emperors' Club VIP, the "prostitution ring" that Eliot Spitzer was involved in. Here's an interesting bit: "Alongside the hooker portfolios, there's a page inviting companies to advertise on emperorsclubvip.com. (To inquire about rates, please e-mail ads@emperorsclubvip.com)." Really?

Something more interesting for the business world: "92 percent of Emperors' Club International Members are CEO / Owner / Partners of a large (often international) corporation."
