Did he think he wouldn't get caught?

One of the sources said Spitzer is identified in a criminal complaint as "Client-9," and that Spitzer's alleged involvement was caught on a federal wiretap.

The criminal complaint involved an alleged high-end prostitution ring run out of New York. Four individuals were charged last week with allegedly running it.

Prosecutors say the ring provided prostitutes costing as much as $3,100 an hour. The criminal complaint did not name any customers, but authorities did intercept text messages, e-mails and telephone calls.

As The inimitable Gleaner points out - Spitzer could now be a Republican - since Ensign seems to be into supporting officials who are caught with girls (Vitter anyone?) as opposed to those with a Larry Craig 'issue!'
