Letterman: Is there anything we need to know about you and escort services before we go on, here?
Franken: Let me just say this. I thought Eliot Spitzer showed very bad judgment.
Letterman (laughing): In his soliciting and use of prostitutes?
Franken: Exactly — and it’s the kind of bad judgment that you don’t want from your elected officials, and I promise not to indulge in any judgment that bad.
Letterman: That bad, yeah. ... And that’s all you have to say?
Franken: I’ll leave it at that. Very poor judgment.
