Kristin Davis was arraigned today in Manhattan federal court on charges she sold hundreds of prescription pills illegally, hours after her “stunned” campaign consultant urged her to drop out of the comptroller’s race.
Ms. Davis, the “Manhattan Madam” who claims to have arranged prostitutes for ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer and is now running against him for city-wide office, was arrested yesterday after allegedly selling hundreds of prescription pills, including amphetamine, alprazolam and carisoprodol, to a co-operating FBI witness, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
The circus surrounding this year’s electoral season doesn’t end.
Kristin Davis, who claims to be the former madam for ex-Gov. Eliot Spitzer and is now running against him in the comptroller’s race, was arrested yesterday by federal prosecutors on charges of selling prescription pills containing controlled substances for cash.
Kristin Davis, the “Manhattan Madam” who was jailed for supplying call girls to former Governor Eliot Spitzer in his infamous, resignation-inducing prostitution scandal, says she’s going to challenge her former client in the comptroller’s race.
“Bring it on,” a surprised Ms. Davis told Politicker during an interview Sunday night, moments after learning that Mr. Spitzer was planning to jump into the electoral arena days before the petitioning deadline. The news also shocked the city’s political establishment and turned the formerly uncontested race on its head.
“Gosh, it’s going to be a fun race!” she exclaimed.
