New York, Mar.14 : As New York's Attorney General, former Governor Eliot Spitzer busted the escort service that had hired the call girl who eventually brought about his exit from office.
According to the former owner of the escort service, Jason Itzler, Ashley Dupre, a rock star escort even at the age of 19.
"She was spectacular. In my opinion, she was the hottest, sexiest escort we ever had," Itzler told CNN's Larry King.
"We were getting easily 2000 dollars an hour for her, with three, four, five-hour minimums," The Australian quoted Itzler as saying before authorities in New York shut down the escort service in January 2005.
Itzler said he was sent to jail for two years for running one of seven or eight escort services that Spitzer busted when he was New York state attorney general.
"How funny it is. What goes around does come around. I'm the king of all pimps. He was the king of hypocrites," he said.
tlzer said he lost contact with Miss Dupre after going to jail, but believes her recent notoriety could ultimately make her a "star". "She's drop-dead gorgeous, a great personality, unbelievable singing voice. And maybe this will launch her into becoming a star," he said.
