Unable to post her $2 million bail and desperate to get her out of jail and home for Mother’s Day, the husband and kids of accused Upper East Side madam Anna Gristina have gone public to raise money. The family yesterday launched a Web site asking for donations toward her whopping bail, which they blast as “cruel and unusual.” The site, www.helpanna.org, features photos of Gristina with her kids and information about her pig-rescue farm. Gristina was arrested on Feb. 22 on a single count of promoting prostitution. Since then, Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan has refused to budge on Gristina’s sky-high bail of $2 million bond — or $1 million cash — siding with prosecutors who claim the Scottish-born mom of four is a flight risk. Gristina lawyer Gary Greenwald has argued that the “outrageous’’ bond is beyond what’s given for mobsters, drug dealers and murderers. [NYP, related]
