DAVIS SAYS TAYLOR CASE ILLUSTRATES EVILS OF ILLEGAL PROSTITUTION
Sees New York in the “Courtesan” business raking in Billions
Kristin Davis, Independent candidate for Governor of New York running on a Libertarian platform said the recent charges against Former New York Giants linebacker and Pro Football Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor.” illustrate the problem will illegal Prostitution ” Taylor was arrested last week with the charge of 3rdegree rape of a minor, a felony, and patronizing a prostitute in the third degree, a misdemeanor. He is facing up to 4 years in prison and his bail was set at $75,000.
The prostitute Taylor was caught with was only 15 years old. In fact, she was a runaway who was living with her parolee Uncle who allegedly forced her into prostitution and dragged her to Taylor’s hotel room.
“This is further evidence that illegal prostitution must end” said Davis. “There is a stigma attached these acts where women are easily led to believe that they have committed a criminal wrongdoing and are afraid to call the police. They will risk their safety to avoid perceived prosecution” said Davis who once opened and owned the most successful escort agency in US History.
“If prostitution is licensed and regulated as well as taxed, it would both promote the public safety and better protect the public health,” said Davis.” If we know where every “courtesan” is we will better be able to protect them from killers and psychos- and do away with pimps so you can eliminate drugs and trafficking of women who do not wish to be prostitutes” said Davis.
“I would take prostitution and put it in one or two remote industrial areas- require proof of age to be a customer, require regular health check-ups and of course, promote and require safe sex at all times. Prostitution anywhere in New York other than these designated area would still be a crime, Davis said in a statement.
“The 15 year old prostitute in the LT case is symbolic of what is happening today- where just as gangsters ran prohibition until it was repealed, criminal elements will be involved with prostitution until it is legalized. Legalization will drive the underworld out of prostitution” the statement concluded.
Notably, the press release calls Davis an independent candidate. Earlier this year, Davis planned to run for the Libertarian nomination, but did not end up going to the convention, and the nomination went to Warren Redlich.
