Perhaps there is a Pedophile, or drug lord we could better make use of the tax dollars chasing?

thats kind of my point. if they were going to spend tax payers dollars doing an investigation, then they should follow up with charges.

Re: Spitzer won't be charged in prostitution scandal
 
I'm wondering if anyone read the 2nd link, here's a quick highlight of why they aren't going forward with charges:

In laying out his decision not to prosecute Mr. Spitzer, Michael J. Garcia, the United States attorney in Manhattan, said he had three main rationales: Mr. Spitzer had apparently not used any public money or campaign funds for his trysts; there was insufficient evidence that he had broken the law in how he had structured payments to the call-girl ring; and, finally, it was not the policy of his or other federal prosecutors’ offices to charge the customers in matters of prostitution.

Patricia A. Pileggi, who once prosecuted public corruption cases in Brooklyn, agreed with Mr. Garcia that the federal government does not, as a general rule, prosecute johns in prostitution cases. She said that she once represented a madam in a criminal case and recalled that the clients in the matter were never charged, despite there being evidence to do so.

“What I’m seeing,” Ms. Pileggi said, referring to Mr. Garcia’s decision, “is completely consistent with how they’ve handled other matters.”

GUILTY, I did not!
Cost to much to incarcerate someone for CS stuff like that.
Hold the spot for an Enron guy?

You have to conduct a proper investigation before determining if it's worth bringing charges.
