March 11, 2008 - PRLog -- Less than 24 hours after the news of Governor Eliot Spitzer's involvement in a prostitution scandal broke, t-shirt design company Scarebaby Design (http://www.scarebaby.com) has unveiled a t-shirt that pokes fun at the issue.  "Client 9" t-shirts feature the number 9 with the word Client, and an image of kissing lips.  

The New York Times reports that Governor Spitzer is expected to resign, but Scarebaby artist Sue Hartzel doesn't believe that will slow sales of the t-shirt.  Spitzer was known for his relentless pursuit of office-holders suspected of wrong-doing.  "New Yorkers especially will find the design amusing, relevant, and a great reminder of the fallibility of all people", says Hartzel.  "The Spitzer scandal is unusual in that Eliot Spitzer won the governorship of New York  after campaigning on ethical leadership.  At the same time, I've heard it said that we're one of the few Western societies where a story like this would actually make the front page.  We're poking a little fun at that, too, at the continuing Puritan undertones still alive in America."

Governor Spitzer has not admitted to any specific acts, and no charges have been filed.

Scarebaby Designs t-shirts are fulfilled by Cafepress, the online print on demand company  based in California.  Scarebaby specializes in political t-shirts, but has recently branched into more general t-shirt designs, including political humor.  For more information, contact Scarebaby Design at scarebabygifts@yahoo.com or visit their website at http://www.scarebaby.com .
