It wasn't an investigation of prostitution that led federal investigators to Spitzer, it was instead Spitzer's suspicious financial activity that led them to the sex, ABC's Brian Ross reports:
The federal investigation of a New York prostitution ring was triggered by Gov. Eliot Spitzer's suspicious money transfers, initially leading agents to believe Spitzer was hiding bribes, according to federal officials.It was only months later that the IRS and the FBI determined that Spitzer wasn't hiding bribes but payments to a company called QAT, what prosecutors say is a prostitution operation operating under the name of the Emperors Club.
