Earlier this month, the Times reported that Mayor Bloomberg and his advisers had been “floating the possibility of mayoral runs to at least five boldface figures,” including Chuck Schumer, Mort Zuckerman, Ed Rendell, Edward Skyler, and Hillary Clinton. Strangely left off the list? A woman who some might say is actually Hizzoner’s most worthy successor and who conveniently announced her intent to run today: Kristin Davis, the woman who once supplied Eliot Spitzer with hot young tail.

To those skeptical about the seriousness of Davis’s candidacy, please note that:

1. She’s already run for office in New York (the governorship, in 2010).
2. She’s knows how to bust her ass (and would bust it for the people, as the mayor of this city).
3. She appears to already be in fundraising mode (appealing to her brethren in the hedge fund community).

“I recognize that hedge funds are a large part of the financial market and have the capability to influence market conditions,” Davis told Absolute Return. “As Mayor, I would want to work with the hedge funds to ensure compliance with the SEC rules and to find a level of transparency that works for the funds and their investors to increase trust of the funds and the markets.” “My hedge fund experience most definitely helped me for everything I’ve encountered in life. My first employer was great but also very tough, which gave me a strong work ethic. If I was off even a basis point in our monthly accounting, I had to search through millions of trades– and dollars– to find the discrepancy.”
