Men who abuse women should be exposed. I’ve maintained the anonymity of my clients while doing media and running for Governor. It was always my stance that my service provided a honest transaction and I did not want to ruin the lives of the men who used it by naming them.
Former NY Governor, Eliot Spitzer, who acted in an abusive manner and led to my arrest is the only one who I have spoken openly about. Now, Mr. Strauss-Kahn has hit the news and has very clearly abused a female employee at the hotel. I will no longer protect the men who abuse women.
We, as a people, should hold those in power to a higher standard. They should not be able to commit crimes and get away with it. Those men who control our monetary supply and create laws should not be able to betray the people they are supposed to protect and go unpunished because they have money, power and political connections. We must demand better for ourselves and from our political officials.
I have nothing to gain by coming forward. I do NOT get paid for interviews and in fact, I've received numerous threats to my life for speaking the truth. But I will continue to do so until something is done and there is equality for everyone - no separate set of standards for the political elite, equality for women, and equality in legalizing same sex marriage.
I will be on 20/20 tonight with Chris Cuomo, Governor Andrew Cuomo's brother. I commend Governor Cuomo for the great job he has done thus far.
