Kristin Davis, the madam who supplied Eliot Spitzer with call girls in 2008, is running against Spitzer for the office of New York City Comptroller.
Davis is running as a Libertarian and claims that her 10 years of experience as a senior vice president of a multi-billion dollar hedge fund give her the expertise for the job, reports CNBC.
“This is going to be the funnest campaign ever…I’ve been waiting for my day to face him for five years.” Davis told the Daily News.
Davis has a website up for her campaign and only requires 3,750 signatures to qualify for the ballot, reports CNBC.
When the Daily News asked Spitzer if he expects questions about the scandal he replied, “I have no doubt there will be questions about that.”
Spitzer claims that his return to politics was influenced by citizens asking him to run again.
