Former Manhattan Madam Kristin Davis, the current Libertarian candidate for New York City comptroller, is already firing at former Democratic New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer, who just announced his comptroller candidacy against her, on Monday. Spitzer was a patron of prostitutes who worked for Davis, who was convicted and served time.
“Eliot Spitzer broke state and federal laws in his use of prostitutes and paid no penalty; I broke the law and paid my debt to society,” Davis said in a statement released Monday morning. “There cannot be two standards of justice, one for the average citizen and another for the political and social elite.”
Davis then took several shots at what she considers Spitzer’s legally questionable political past. “Eliot Spitzer financed his two campaigns for Attorney General with illegal loans from his father, misused state resources to spy on his political opponents in Troopergate, pressured companies to hire his cronies as a conditions of settling charges with the Attorney General’s Office and violated Federal money laundering laws when he sought to hide his use of call-girls,” Davis said. “This is our next City Comptroller?”
Davis added that she looks forward to debates “where I have many questions for Eliot Spitzer.”
