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.

    She’d actually be a great candidate if she wasn’t lying through her teeth about personal and economic freedom.

    She opposes personal freedom when it comes to religion, and economic freedom when it comes to property rights in buildings.

    “I am running on a platform of personal and economic freedom,”

    Except when it comes to freedom of religion, freedom of association, and property rights.

    and your property rights wont mean much if you are immolated by Islamo-facists–dead men own no property and have no religious freedom.

    Absurd statement.

    Andrew,

    I did read what Davis actually said, the day she said it.

    I even read the whole thing even though she opened with a blatant falsehood, referring to the “Ground Zero mosque” when it is neither a mosque nor at “Ground Zero.”

    Which means I read far enough to find out that she’s completely ignorant of the US Constitution and abysmally clueless on foreign policy.

    Nobody dislikes Republicans on principle more than I do, but I have to concede that LPNY was very, very smart to nominate Warren Redlich instead of Davis. Davis reminds me of Sarah Palin with a lobotomy … but I repeat myself.

    Andrew, the article from Kristin Davis you linked to is interesting. If she is concerned about money coming from Qatar, is she concerned about American soldiers being stationed in that country? I guess that would mean the US is collaborating with terrorist financiers in her view.

    The Property Rights argument on GZ Mosque is irrelevant.

    The property is quasi-public. Con-Edison is the owner of half the property. Con-Edison is essentially a government entity, like Chrysler and GM receiving billions in taxpayer subsidies.

    The Public Services Comm. overseas Con-Ed. Chaired by none other than NY Gov. David Paterson.

    Thomas Knapp is correct. It is not really a proposed “Mosque,” per se. It is more accurately described as an Al Qaeda/Hamas Terrorist Training Center proposed for lower Manhattan.

    There is extensive evidence leading Rauf to Muslim extremists connected with both Terrorist organizations. They are even now explicitly saying they plan to use the Center for radical Islamist activities.

    So, better to use the more descriptive and accurate term Ground Zero Muslim Terrorst Center

  9. Andrew Miller

    The non-mosque where Islamists will ” go to pray” is a MOSQUE and is exactly 650 feet from where the World Trade Center once stood– Yes it is a Mosque and it is at the Ground Zero site. I have been there and seen it with my own eyes–since those who say this is not so probably live in Iowa how would they know ??

  10. Andrew Miller

    hey Shaqbark–must be tough to have no life, live with your parents and masterbate comstantly.

  11. Thomas L. Knapp

    Andrew,

    It is not a mosque according to the doctrines of the Wahabe Islamists its opponents are claiming they see behind it.

    And no, it’s not at Ground Zero.

    It’s only easier to get your way by lying if nobody notices.

    Unfortunately for you, people have noticed.

    Since you refuse to tell the truth about what it is and where it is, why should your arguments as to whether or not it should be allowed be given any weight?

    He appears to be a Republican, a tribe that will believe almost any amount of bigoted nonsense.

    On the other hand, he probably also believes he knows how to spell.

    On the bright side, people with lines like his — I also have one pursuing my LibertyForAll column — are doing a fine job of convincing Americans that Republicans have no business near the reins of government.

    ed: There is extensive evidence leading Rauf to Muslim extremists connected with both Terrorist organizations. They are even now explicitly saying they plan to use the Center for radical Islamist activities.

    me: If there is such evidence and laws are being broken, then prosecutors should prosecute.

    Organized crime figures have given to religious organizations in the past, near as I can tell. For ex., members on my “tribe” give to the Catholic Church. If a mobster is going to give to build a new Church, would you block the building of that church?

    As someone who lives in Albany I have to react to the Randy Credico revelation with a “well duh”. This is New York State. There is no Libertarian movement in New York State. Not a real one. Look at voter enrollment. When the LP runs candidates in New York it’s usually just a case of a national party trying to influence local politics from the top down. This is especially true in the City. I will never be convinced that Libertarianism is a philosophy which truely works in an urban setting. It leads to chaos. As a Green, Credico is the one Libertarian candidate I’m toying with voting for. But really, we need regulations in this state. We need to pay our taxes too.
