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.

On top of all the other stuff- he’s gone and pissed off New York madam Kristin Davis, who Eliot Spitzer can confirm you do not want as an enemy. Read more »
As you may have heard, Kristin Davis, the former madam who supplied Eliot Ness with prostitutes when he was into that sort of thing, is running for governor of New York. She’s previously stated that her qualifications for the job are that she 1) “Was valedictorian of [her] high-school class 2) “Worked 10 years in finance [as] vice president of a hedge fund 3) “Went on to build a multimillion-dollar business from
snatchscratch.” Today she elaborated on how her time in the industry helped prepare her for life (her boss was a real slave driver) and what you can expect should you vote Davis on election day. Read more »
When Kristin Davis first made the bold claim she’d be running for governor of New York State, it was admittedly an attempt to get back at her arch-nemesis, Eliot Spitzer. It frosted Davis’ cookies like no other that the man she supplied– ballparking it here but possibly– thousands of hookers with, in her role as the city’s foremost madam, did no jail time, whereas she was behind bars for months. Figuring Ness would eventually get that old itch to hold office again, she announced she would take him down. Unfortunately, Davis underestimated how much of a time commitment Spitzer’s Slate gig would be, leaving him precious little for a campaign. And besides which, no one thought she’d actually be able to get on the ballot. Well think AGAIN.
Kristin Davis, the ex-madam who supplied call girls for Eliot Spitzer when he was attorney general and governor, has gotten herself on the November ballot. Davis procured 23,000 signatures – more than the 15,000 required – in support of her candidacy as an independent challenger to Andrew Cuomo. She’ll be the first woman in New York history to run for the office while on probation (for one count of promoting prostitution in the third degree).
Lest anyone have it in their heads that Davis lack the qualifications to run New York State, please recall that KD 1) “Was valedictorian of [her] high-school class 2) “Worked 10 years in finance [as] vice president of a hedge fund 3) “Went on to build a multimillion-dollar business from snatchscratch.” Read more »
What Was The Thought Process Behind Eliot Spitzer Go-To Hooker Supplier Kristin Davis’s Decision To Leave Her Job At A Hedge Fund To Become A Madam?By Bess Levin
“It was a business decision. The economics of sex were appealing. I worked in the back office of a hedge fund, making six figures but I was always taking crap from everyone. I put together a market analysis on the sex industry and it looked to be a lucrative appealing endeavor.” Read more »
“I love politics,” Spitzer told Fortune. “The substance, the debate about the issues …” As for a race in 2010? It is “just hard to see,” he says. But he adds, “I’ve never said I would never consider running for office again.”
He’s not afraid of this broad, who’s sworn she’ll go head to head with him if he think of so much as running for the PTA, and actually, Ness would relish the opportunity to do battle with her in a no-holds barred debate.
As for that other ish? Read more »
Kristin Davis, the madam who once supplied Eliot Spitzer with hot young tail, said in October that should the noted hooker fucker run for city comptroller, she’d run against him. Now she’s decided that a woman of her stature should be setting her sights on loftier goals, announcing her intent to run for governor over the weekend. KD’s campaign manager, Roger Stone, admits that in the beginning, this was all about getting back at Ness, as Davis still harbors some ill-will toward the guy since she went to jail for 4 months for her role in the pay-to-lay operation and all he had to do was say I’m sorry but now it’s so much bigger than that. “This started out being about Spitzer,” admitted Stone, who in 2007 tipped off the FBI to Spitzer’s hooker habit. “But now that it looks like he won’t run, Kristin still wants to use her celebrity to highlight a reform agenda.” So, no, this is not a joke, or a publicity stunt, or an excuse to put the boat picture on buttons and posters. And in case you were wondering, Davis is amply qualified for the job.
Eliot Spitzer, clearly, is dying to get in public office. A bid for the presidency probably isn’t too far off, but he’s got to start slow, hence the rumors he’s considering a run for city comptroller, which he probably thought would be an easy win. Unfortunately, in underestimating the woman who once supplied him with hot young tail, he thought wrong. That’s right ladies– Kristin Davis, the madam with whom Ness once had an amicable working relationship has announced that not only is she going to do her best to prevent the noted hooker fucker’s triumphant return to public service, but she’s going to run against him (KD is also the woman who protested Spitz speaking at Harvard, which I’m assuming is indication that everywhere Big E goes for the rest of his life, this tremendous lady will be there). Davis is doing so for three reasons.
I will run firstly to highlight the inequities and sexism in our criminal justice system which penalizes women, minorities and poor people while wealthy, connected white men like Eliot Spitzer evade justice. Our system that allows Spitzer to walk on money laundering and violating the Mann act (transporting a prostitute across state lines), but sends Plaxico to prison for seven years for shooting himself in the foot is ripe for real reform.
2. Qualifications, namely, her superior ones
At the same time I am just as qualified for the position of comptroller than Spitzer, a bully who used the Attorney general’s office to blackmail business but whose record in court was embarrassing. I managed the operations for a hedge fund for 10 years, I was VP by the age of 26. I built a multi-million dollar International business out of nothing. I will have my Masters degree before election day in November 2010 as I am finishing my dissertation now. Unlike Prince Eliot I worked for everything I achieved; Daddy paid his way.
3. Because Spitzer wore black socks during sex
