Earlier today it was reported that the Morgan Stanley employee who was helping Upper East Side madam and self-titled “CEO” Anna Gristina/Scotland expand her “empire” was a broker David Walker. Subsequently, some people showed up to one David Walker’s apartment for a comment on the matter. He told them 1) That contrary to various stories, he was “not there” when Gristina was arrested 2) That he doesn’t get why he’s the only Morgan Stanley guy being singled out here and 3) How dare you- she’s a nice lady!

David S. Walker, the [broker] who a source close to the case said was with Gristina when she was busted for running a multi-million dollar prostitution service out of her Upper East Side apartment, told DNAinfo that Gristina is a “very caring, very giving, very loving” woman. “I’m surprised at having to answer these questions,” Walker said at the door of his Midtown apartment. “She was the mom next door.” Walker told DNAinfo he wasn’t there when Gristina was arrested. He also said the pig-loving alleged madam had many other connections at his high-powered firm. “She had plenty of other people at Morgan Stanley, I don’t know why they’re talking about me,” he said. Walker said he and Gristina met through mutual friends years ago and “I never had any business dealings with her.”

Walker also said that he was “home sick” today.

    “very caring, very giving, very loving” Yes David she is. In fact she is so caring, giving and loving that she had to hire others to provide all the caring, giving and loving for a small donation based on how much caring, giving or loving each client wanted. The scale was this:

    Caring = $1000
    Giving = $1500
    Loving = $2000

    How can that be illegal?

    Actually, this post is inaccurate reporting. Unless you have another source, nowhere in the DNAinfo piece does Mr. Walker claim to have been "not there" at the time of Gristina's arrest; he only claimed to have never done business with her.

  17. Posted by guest | March 8, 2012 at 3:26 PM

    Yes, actually, he did, which is why not only Dealbreaker but everyone else (New York Magazine, Business Insider and so on) quote him as saying that, based on the original DNA story which has clearly been updated since.

    "DNA Info spoke with Walker, who says he was not there when Gristina was arrested. "She was the mom next door," he said, calling her "very caring, very giving, very loving," and adding that he wasn't the only banker she knew. "She had plenty of other people at Morgan Stanley, I don't know why they're talking about me.""

    Walker told reporters that contrary to previous reports, he was not there when Gristina was arrested, according to DNAinfo.
