from a Davis for Governor press release
August 17, 2010
Ex-Madam files for Governor of Empire State
Kristin Davis, the ex-Madam who supplied call-girls for Eliot Spitzer when he was both Attorney General and Governor, filed 22,000 voter signatures to secure a place on the ballot as an independent candidate for Governor with the New York State Board of Elections as the candidate of the Anti-Prohibition Party.
“I am running on a platform of personal and economic freedom,” said Davis who served four months on Rikers Island for pleading guilty to one count of promoting prostitution.” I want to end the prohibition on marijuana, gay marriage and casino gambling to generate new revenues instead of raising taxes on already over-taxed New Yorkers.”
Davis is an outspoken feminist, libertarian and gay marriage advocate.
“The two major parties have driven our state economy into a ditch,” said Davis. “I think New Yorkers are ready for new ideas, new faces and new solutions,” said Davis, 35, a former Hedge Fund Vice President. “Let the debate begin”.
Independent candidates for Governor are requires to file 15,000 valid signatures with at least 100 in each of 15 Congressional districts.
