Ashley Madison Beats Eliot Spitzer To Death

ashleymadison_eliotspitzer.jpgNot content to let America have all the schadenfreude fun, Ashley Madison—Toronto-based online dating company intended for people looking to cheat on their spouses, whose slogan is “when monogamy becomes monotony” and who is responsible for TV ads like these—took out a full-page ad in today’s New York Post.
Addressed to Eliot Spitzer, the now–former New York Governor who was caught hiring prostitutes, the open letter (at right) slicks a thick coat of sleaze onto an already sleazy situation, suggesting that Spitzer wouldn’t have gotten in all this trouble if only he’d registered for an account with the “safe and secure” website, as though the ethical crookedness of a situation can be mitigated by simply not getting caught for it (which Spitzer totally would have been).
Oh well! Stay classy, Ashley Madison!
