Eliot Spitzer Linked to Yet Another Upscale Prostitution Ring

This entire report comes from the The Huffington Post


Today's NY Post links former New York governor Eliot Spitzer to Wicked Models, a high-priced prostitution ring busted this week. His spokeswoman denies he was a client. Three weeks ago Spitzer stepped down as governor when he was linked to Emperors Club VIP. Based in midtown Manhattan, Wicked Models was run by a buxom blonde named Kristin "Billie" Davis, who also saw clients. Davis, 32, is currently being held on $2 M bail after pleading not guilty to promoting prostitution and money laundering.



Writes the Post:
The ex-governor regularly patronized Wicked Models, the Manhattan-based operation taken down Tuesday, according to financial documents and other evidence unearthed in a yearlong prostitution in investigation, law-enforcement sources said...
A source said Davis personally serviced Spitzer.
"She personally interfaced with Spitzer a number of times" since 2003 before she became a madam, a source close to Davis said.
When asked about the allegation, Davis told The Post, "I can't talk about it." Spitzer's spokeswoman, Anna Cordasco, countered that "Mr. Spitzer was not ever a client of Ms. Davis."


Wicked Models is rumored to a have a client list that includes athletes and politicians. Writes the NY Daily News, who reported the bust but not the Spitzer link:
Investigators Wednesday night pored over the little black book of an alleged midtown madam whose clients are rumored to include athletes and powerhouse politicians.
Kristin Davis, a busty bottle-blond accused of running a $1,600-an-hour call girl service, was jailed on $2 million bail after pleading not guilty to promoting prostitution and money laundering.
"I think any time she got her hands on someone worth bragging about, she might have kept a memento," said Jason Itzler, the self-proclaimed "King of All Pimps," who claims Davis worked for him in 2004. "She was a rock star escort."
