Former "Manhattan Madam" Kristin Davis to run for governor of NY
New York, Sept 10 (ANI): Former "Manhattan Madam" Kristin Davis has revealed that she is running for governor of New York as a minor-party candidate.
Davis, 35, is hoping to push her causes of legalizing and taxing marijuana, legalizing gay marriage and decriminalizing prostitution.
"I am a protest candidate. The career politicians have run this state into the ground," the New York Post quoted her as saying.
"Both Republicans and Democrats, working together, have given us the highest property taxes in the nation," she said.
In her economic analysis, she claims 15 billion dollars total economic benefit from legalizing marijuana.
In her plan to decriminalize prostitution, she said it should be run as in Nevada, where the women are protected from pimps and are regularly tested for sexually transmitted diseases.
Davis, who has secured a line on the ballot in November for her Anti-Prohibition Party, said she plans to carry out a statewide tour.
And if she gets 50,000 votes in November, she will secure an automatic ballot line for at least four years and gain a voice in New York politics.
"I'm pretty confident we'll get it," she added. (ANI)
