Former sex worker enters N.Y. gov. race
upi ^ | Feb. 7, 2010

Posted on 02/08/2010 6:10:55 AM PST by JoeProBono

Former sex worker Kristin Davis, dubbed the "Manhattan Madam," said she intends to run as a Libertarian in the race for governor of New York.

Davis has help from a well known Republican operative, Roger Stone, who worked with former presidents including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and both Bushes.

"This is not a hoax, a prank or a publicity stunt. I want to get her a half-million votes," Stone said.

Davis has talked about running against former Gov. (and alleged former client) Eliot Spitzer.

In 2007, Stone tipped off the FBI to Spitzer's predilection for prostitutes, landing Davis nearly four months on Rikers Island while Spitzer resigned in disgrace but escaped indictment, the Daily News said.

"But now that it looks like he won't run, Kristin still wants to use her celebrity to highlight a reform agenda," Stone said.

Davis' image belies her credentials, which include 10 years in finance, the report said. She says she is a natural Libertarian, defining "taxation as confiscation," and says legalizing prostitution and marijuana could provide $2.5 billion in revenue.

Stone denies he is using Davis to lure votes away from Democrats.

"The (presumptive) Republican candidate, Rick Lazio, is a turkey," Stone said. "Kristin will get as many gun votes from the Republicans as pot votes from the Democrats."

The Libertarian Party would like to become a major political force in America. They have a three-prong approach – legalize prostitution, legalize drugs, and open the borders to all the illegal immigrants of the world.

Good luck with that.

Have to admit, tho ... it could make for some interesting campaign commercials.

"Former sex worker Kristin Davis..."

I guess we can't use the W-word anymore?

BTW, she is GUILTY. Maybe a case of suspended sentence 15 years ago, but definitely guilty now!

Ugh! I hate tatoos. And she is way over the hill, like an over-ripe avocado, but thinks she is still sexy.

Libertarians, go back to Mars, and take Howard Stern with you!

A half-million votes in a statewide election in New York? That sounds like a publicity stunt to me.

I agree with you on that. A woman could be otherwise drop dead gorgeous, but tattoos ruin everything. Once the skin starts sagging, they look even worse.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

You're nobody's sweetheart now.
They don't baby you, somehow.
Silken hat, silken gown!
You'd be out of place in your own hometown.

When you walk down the avenue,
I just can't believe it's you.
Painted lips, painted eyes,
Wearing a bird-of-paradise!

It all seems wrong somehow,
That you're nobody's sweetheart now.

Just remember that when you legalize prostitution to do the other libertarian thing of getting rid of the age of consent so our 11 year old daughters can do it too.

I hate so many things these days.

Can we actually use the whore word for this one, I mean its literal this time.

She is not a Libertarian, but a tool of Republican dirty trickster Roger Stone, a “friend” of hers.

Please take note of the differences between the Libertarian Party and libertarian philosophy.

They are not at all the same.

Libertarian Party = "I want to smoke dope and screw hookers!"

For examples, see Bill Mahr and Howard Stern.

libertarian philosophy = "The minimum amount of government necessary to enforce contracts and punish those that initiate violence."

For examples see Ronald Reagan.
