After seeing that the Spitzer takedown was due to the IRS monitoring payments made by Spitzer, which then led them to the prostitution ring, here’s a tip for political aspirants:

Before you start your campaign, make sure that you have at least a couple (seemingly) arm’s-length shell companies established that can make payments on your behalf without it getting back to you directly.

Also, in the shell companies, classify any payments as loans, which you can later forgive.

I mean, that’s NJ politics 101, isn’t it?
