Kirstin Davis, the madam who arranged Eliot Spitzer’s hooker hookups and flirted with a potential run for comptroller, is preparing to throw her sizable bust into the race for the state’s highest office. Longtime GOP consultant Roger Stone is behind her campaign and says he’s completely serious about it.
“This is not a hoax, a prank or a publicity stunt,” Stone said. “I want to get her a half-million votes.”
Davis has mentioned before that she would run against Spitzer for comptroller as a way to make sure the world doesn’t forget that he’s a perv. Now she’s moved on to bigger things. Davis plans to run for governor as a Libertarian and “highlight a reform agenda.” Lest you think she doesn’t have the qualifications to hold the highest office in the state, she’s got her sales pitch ready to go.
“I was valedictorian of my high-school class,” said the golden-tressed Davis, sporting a modest black suit but wicked Christian Louboutins with 5-inch heels. “I worked 10 years in finance. I was vice president of a hedge fund. I went on to build a multimillion-dollar business from scratch.”
Perhaps most importantly though, she’s got the support of G-Unit and there are few political endorsements more valuable that 50 Cent’s.
