MANHATTAN MADAM: VANCE SHOULD TELL VOTERS WHERE HE STANDS ON SEXISM OF CALL GIRL RING BUSTS
SHOULD RICH WHITE GUYS WALK WHILE WOMEN PROVIDERS DO TIME?
Kristin Davis, the Manhattan Madam who supplied call girls for Spitzer while he was both Attorney General and Governor wants to know if Manhattan District Attorney candidate Cyrus Vance thinks it's fair that she was charged with promoting prostitution and did four months on Rikers Island while Spitzer walked away without being prosecuted.
Spitzer is hosting a fundraiser at Spitzer’s Park Avenue Apartment on Wednesday August 5th.
“Vance wants to be DA," said Davis. “ Does he think it is fair and equitable that a rich well connected white man like Spitzer violated the law but avoided prosecution while an “up-from-nothing” entrepreneurial woman like me did hard-time on Rikers Island, much of it in solitary confinement, for my role in supplying girls to the rich and famous.”
Davis noted that Spitzer violated both Federal money laundering laws and the Mann Act in his DC tryst with hooker Ashley Duprè. “Polygamist Warren Jeffs was prosecuted for violation of the Mann Act, transporting women over state lines for sexual purposes last year- why not Eliot Spitzer?” said Davis.
Davis was slapped with $2 million in bail and was remanded to Rikers Island when she could not pay after the Feds seized all of her assets. Now out on probation, Davis has become an advocate for the legalization, regulation and taxation of prostitution while finishing her studies for an MBA. Davis previously managed a hedge fund prior to founding the most successful multi-million dollar escort service in US history.
“My prosecution and Spitzer’s pass demonstrates both the sexism and selective prosecution by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office as well as the fundamental inequities in our criminal justice system,” said Davis. Vance should be ashamed to have Spitzer’s support.”
Davis says she may hold a press conference outside the Spitzer fundraiser to confront Vance about his views on whether Spitzer should have been prosecuted like everyone else involved in the controversy. Davis also says she will seek the views of Leslie Crocker Snyder and Richard Aborn, the other candidates for DA, before the September primary.
"Voters, particularly women, have a right to know if these candidates think my treatment was fair compared to Client # 9," said Davis.
