Forget David Paterson, Andrew Cuomo and Rick Lazio.
Kristin Davis, the “Manhattan Madam” who allegedly set up the love connections between disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and call girls, is running for the top seat in Albany with the backing of Roger Stone, a GOP operative with a reputation for outlandish behavior and dirty tricks. The Daily News reported the piece of salacious politics yesterday. At the Libertarian party convention, Davis branded herself as someone who built a multimillion-dollar business from the ground up, the paper reported.
Stone, who has taken credit for tipping off the FBI to Spitzer’s penchant for hookers, told the Daily News’ Rush & Molloy that he may hire some Penthouse Pets, get them notary licenses and have them collect signatures in Grand Central to get Davis on the ballot.
Warren Redlich is also running for the LP nomination for Governor of NY.
In the past, “celebrity” candidates such as Howard Stern and former Massachusetts Governor William Weld have also sought the NY LP gubernatorial nomination.
