To mark the third anniversary of her arrest Ex-Madam Kristin Davis who supplied high priced call girls for former Governor Eliot Spitzer said she will jump in the 2013 New York City Mayor’s Race if the former Governor, now a CNN talk show host makes a bid.
Davis filed 18,000 signatures to get on the ballot last year, participated in the televised debate between Democrat Andrew Cuomo and Republican Carl Paladino last year and got nearly 30,000 votes in the race for Governor running on a libertarian platform.
“If Spitzer throws his black socks in the ring I may have to throw in my lacy brassiere” said Davis who once ran the most successful high end escort service in US history.
“I had pretty much decided to focus on the sex trafficking issue and not to run for public office again ” said Davis ” I am working to take the GOLD program, put forward by an advocacy group in Miami to combat sex trafficking nationwide” . Davis kicked off Hope House, a New York based non profit to fight the conscription of women into prostitution last month.
“The women who worked for me chose to be sex workers said Davis. “80% of the women working as escorts are doing so against their will” said Davis “Until prostitution is decriminalized we must provide an escape from this life for thousands of young women”.
“Running for Governor was great fun and very educational but I decided to pursue advocacy activity and some entrepreneurial efforts in legal industries. ” said the ex Hedge Fund Vice president. “The one thing that could probably get me off the bench is a Mayor candidacy by Eliot Spitzer. I’d have to look at it. The opportunity to expose the inequality in our Justice system may be too great”.
IPR note: Davis was on the ballot as the candidate of the Anti-Prohibition Party after failing to get the Libertarian Party nomination. She is among those being sued by Libertarian nominee Warren Redlich for flyers that called him a sexual predator.
