United Kingdom Couldn’t Be Prouder Of Scotland-Born Whorehouse CEO

The last six weeks have been a fairly stressful time for Anna Gristina/Scotland. On March 6, she was arrested for allegedly running a brothel out of an East 78th Street apartment, where she provided hookers to “wealthy, powerful men” (“politicians, top-law enforcement, influential lawyers, bankers, entertainment execs and Fortune 500 businessmen”), which meant her plans for global expansion (the details of which she’d been hammering out with a broker friend just that morning) had to be shelved. On April 3, her request for reduced bail (set at $2 million) was denied for a fourth time. On April 9, it became clear she was probably going to have to send her pet pigs to a farm “upstate.” Right now, as she sits in a jail cell on Riker’s Island, it would be fair to assume Gristina/Scotland’s spirits are pretty low. And while it may be little consolation, she should know that everyone back home, across the pond, is not only rooting for her but swelling with pride over her accomplishments, which they speak of in terms generally reserved for local athletes bringing home Olympic gold medals.

When David Cameron spoke recently of entrepreneurs banging the drum for British business, he possibly wasn’t referring to the woman whose entrepreneurship has become the talk of New York. In her own way, though, Anna Gristina, 44, could be cited as a curious example of British excellence. The Scottish woman, who allegedly ran a high-class prostitution racket from her Manhattan apartment for 15 years, has been showing that when it comes to sex scandals the Brits still lead the world. Heidi Fleiss may have had an A-list clientele but she didn’t have Playboy models working for her, royalty and former presidential candidates on the books, an ex-husband who is a noted politician, and a stunning stand-up comedienne sidekick. For wild originality alone the “McMadam” story surely wins out.

District Attorney Charles Linehan told the court that there “was no plainer example that she (Gristina) is a flight risk.” If the prosecutors are playing hardball, however, so is Gristina. From her cell in Riker’s Island she sent word that she would sooner bite her own tongue off than betray any of her prominent clients. One would expect nothing less of a doughty Scot, who decades ago left behind her tiny village of Kirkliston, near Edinburgh, to make her fortune in the big city but is still well remembered back home.

That’s our girl!

McMadam is the talk of New York [Independent]
Related: “I’m a CEO,” Gristina wrote to one pal from her early days in the ancient village of Kirkliston. “Takes a lot of work,” she told another.

    Is this the "No True Scotswoman" fallacy I learned of in logic class?

  2. gab says:

    $2 million bail? Seriously? I understand the belief that she's a flight risk, but $2 million?

    We have lost our collective minds…

  22. SEO is the tool kit, so to speak, used to optimize the inherent data of each individual web page within your website to make it most visible to go looking. Advertising is key in SEM Lookup Engine Marketing. SEO and SEM are distinct and equally valuable disciplines, but optimizing a site’s articles and associated meta data (SEO) is often a good first (and cheaper than ads- SEM) option..

  46. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I confess to never having owned a dryer, so everything has always been dried outside when possible. The best thing is when you wash both your sheets and pyjamas, so everything has that awesome line-dried smell :-)Sunlight actually kills a lot of nasties that the dryer can’t and acts as a natural bleach for white sheets, so sunshine FTW!

  89. I wanted to post you that bit of remark to help say thank you over again for your personal remarkable methods you’ve shown at this time. It was certainly incredibly generous with you to give freely all that numerous people would’ve offered for an electronic book in order to make some money for their own end, principally seeing that you might have tried it in case you considered necessary. Those inspiring ideas likewise served to provide a good way to be aware that most people have similar fervor just like my own to learn way more when considering this matter. Certainly there are many more fun occasions in the future for folks who check out your blog.
