Kristin Davis, Libertarian, Entrepreneur, businesswoman, former Hedge Fund VP, also former Manhattan Madam who supplied disgraced Governor Eliot Spitzer with escorts. In 2008, she was convicted of 1 count of promoting prostitution in the 3rd degree and served 4 months in Rikers Island, also forfeiting all of her assets.
