Peter Sagal Weighs In on Spitzer and 'Vice'

/

When he's not hosting Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me, NPR's weekly news quiz show, Peter Sagal is likely at a casino, a swingers club or visiting a porn-movie set. All investigative research, of course, for his recent book, The Book of Vice: Very Naughty Things (and How to Do Them).

Sagal wanted to get a perspective on the indulgences of others and report back to the rest of us.

In light of Monday's surprising allegations that New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer was involved in a prosecution ring, Sagal weighs in on the correlation between power and vice.

"It goes back in history that powerful people get to break sexual rules," Sagal says — those in power are "immune from the sexual rules that bind down the poor rest of us."
