Former Spitzer madam to run for NY governor

In an ironic twist, Kristin Davis, the now bleached blonde Manhattan madam whose former client was former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer (D), just announced she will run for governor of New York.

Her blog, manhattanmadam.com’s most recent post is titled “Why I will run for Governor in 2010.” Davis is deciding whether to run as Libertarian Party candidate or she may opt to decide to form her own party, she stated. Her platform includes legalization of prostitution, marijuana and gay marriage.

Davis is set to seek the help of GOP operative Roger Stone, who worked for a few Republicans presidents, according to The New York Daily News.

The madam recently became an advocate for women’s rights. Stone swears the announcement isn’t a hoax.
