NEW YORK — The "Manhattan Madam" who supplied call girls for Eliot Spitzer when he was Attorney General and Governor, will announce her candidacy for Governor of New York State as an Independent Candidate at 11 a.m. on March 1.

Kristin Davis will announce her intention to petition her way onto the ballot and will outline her platform, which includes legalization, regulation and taxation of prostitution and marijuana to generate urgently needed new revenues for New York State and her support for gay marriage.

Davis told XBIZ, "In terms of the adult business, I'd obviously like to see prostitution legalized. It has both a social and economic value to society and we need to legalize, tax and regulate it. As former owner of the world's largest escort agency - and also someone who spent time in jail for running this business- I know first hand that you cannot both criminalize prostitution and claim equality for women. Women who are convicted with these crimes become unemployable yet the men are never prosecuted. I'm a Libertarian and I believe that the government needs to stay out of the personal lives of citizens (and out of their sex lives)."

In attendance at her announcement will be Penthouse Pet Ryan Keely and Penthouse Columnist Dr. Victoria Zdrok. Also in attendance will be supporters from ThisIs50.com and Susan Austin, Madam of The Mustang Ranch.
