Spitzer's Harvard Club Application? Rejected

In his emergence from political disgrace, Eliot Spitzer has played multiple roles: political commentator, financial columnist, college professor, and, most recently, CNN host.
One role he will not be playing: a member of the Harvard Club of New York City.
This year, the Midtown club turned down Mr. Spitzer's application for membership -- a rare snub by the club -- because officials there did not want to be associated with Mr. Spitzer and the prostitution scandal that forced him from the governorship of New York in 2008, according to a person told of the decision by Harvard officials.
