Travis Henry Rushes To Spitzer's Side

Mar 13, 2008

New York - Sources report that Denver Bronco running back Travis Henry, father of nine children with nine separate women, has offered his counsel to soon-to-be former New York governor Elliot Spitzer. “I know where he’s coming from,” said Henry.

When told of Henry’s offer, Spitzer briefly lost his composure for the first time since his prostitution-driven crisis erupted, before murmuring: “I’ve always relied on the kindness of strangers.”  

“That’s a good one, honey!” chuckled his wife, Silda Spitzer, who held her husband’s hand firmly throughout the interview with eTrueSports.

When reached by telephone, the woman Spitzer allegedly paid to have sex with him, asked, "Was he the old bald guy or the old fat guy?"

Silda Spitzer confirmed that she had counseled her husband to control his urges to resign. “But, you know Elliot, he’s a hard man. Still, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of him pulling out of anything.”

Elliot Spitzer vehemently denied press reports that Travis Henry had asked for a quid pro quo for his advice. “There is absolutely no deal with Mr. Henry,” said Spitzer in his characteristically forceful manner. “We did discuss the issue of child support. I’m very sympathetic to his situation. Nine little ones, wow! I only have three. I think.”
