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."
Good luck with that.
How long before she is on Obamas, cabnet or apointed sex czar?
Have to admit, tho ... it could make for some interesting campaign commercials.
“At least I ADMIT I’m a Prostitute!”
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!
DANGER WILL ROBINSON, BRAIN DAMAGE! RUN AWAY!
Jeez—I thought this was going to be the damaging news about Paterson!
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.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Finally, a politician that’s honest about what they are.
At least she admits she’s a whore. She’ll be in good company.
Shes a Cougar..
Why do they always have to have those giant barbed wire tattoos?
A shovel by any other name is still a shovel.
At least taxpayers that feel they are getting screwed would think they are getting something for their money!
For the same reason they have those outsized boobs.
Kristin Davis is a man, baby!
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.
