Earlier this morning it was reported that Morgan Stanley “reviewed its visitor logs” upon hearing that one of its employees was supposedly conducting business with Anna Gristina/Scotland, a purveyor of prostitutes, when she was arrested this week. In the event the bank is still on the hunt, Charlie Gasparino claims to have a name.

“…the executive involved with UES madam has been identified as David Walker, a broker in the midtown office. He has not been charged and didn’t return calls. Morgan Stanley has no comment.”

Not to be confused with this guy.

    He was just interested in seeding a few prostitutes. No biggie.

    At least he hasn't been caught wearing a fanny pack while working out. That is grounds for termination at every bank and punishable by death in certain nations.

    Okay, hotshot: Where do you suggest I put my Muscle Milk and Walkman when I'm doing wind sprints at a rate of speed you couldn't even begin to comprehend?

    I mean, there is a real precedent for Wall Street to get behind a deal like this: http://scripophily.net/murain19.html

    Might I suggest up your arse as long as you have room next to the hamster.

    Hypocrite. Gasachaz has been running a special kind of brothel out of the Equinox steam room for years. If you wanted him to give you a reach around, you had to leave the door slightly ajar and drape your towel over it.

    Please keep your methods to yourself, we aren't interested.

    Davey, your clothes are in a box with the doorman. I must have misunderstood when you told me you were meeting with a client that needed some growth capital.. You meant the Royal Skank of Scotland. My mistake. Well, my SECOND mistake.

    Wow, great journalism Charlie. A trader at a brothel. Riveting.

    You realize the fact that he was entertaining a madam AT HIS OFFICE re financing her brothel, and wasn't merely a customer at one, is the interesting part, right?

    "Anna’s lawyers argue she 'was setting up a legal dating business, hoping to rival online titan Match.com.'"

    Right. Well, bad news for the "legal dating business" venture: if she was thinking about setting up a service that looks like a respectable dating service but is really an escort service underneath, it's been done already, many times. Oh, and trying to infiltrate escorts into sites that are trying to be respectable: that's been done, too.

    The headline at MarketWatch was highly misleading and highly disappointing.

    They were actually meeting to discuss ways to get the "business" accepted as a vendor on eDine / SeamlessWeb

    "UPDATE: A quick glance at Walker's FINRA BrokerCheck Report (PDF) shows that he's registered in four U.S. states — California, Florida, New Jersey and New York. He's been with Morgan Stanley Smith Barney since June 2009. His previous work experience includes stints at Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch."

    Well, David Walker worked for Jim Cayne, Dick Fuld, and Stan O'Neal. He certainly has the experience of Wall Street's greatest brain trust. Morgan Stanley – hiring the best!

    Agreed. Many apologies for the distraction.

    Another very, very interesting atcrile. I think it’s a shame how African American artists have been overlooked, but this has changed now and I am glad about it. I think there is so much treasure and so much soul in African American art.
