1st NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix
From WE by Mark Hemingway
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.
The Times further reports that the club, “which has about 11,000 members, admits nearly everyone eligible who applies.”
