It Doesn’t Get Any Better Than This
the race for the Democratic
nomination for mayor, which should be tantamount to election has focused on
former disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner and the exploits that made him a
former disgraced Congressman. But the

Ms. Davis, 38, is a former madam who spent several months at
in 2008 for running a prostitution ring. She also said that she supplied
escorts to Eliot Spitzer, who resigned as governor that year after admitting
that he had patronized a prostitution ring. Mr. Spitzer, who is also running
for comptroller, has denied any association with Ms. Davis. Law enforcement
officials have said that neither the investigations of Ms. Davis nor Mr.
Spitzer uncovered any evidence to support her claim. Rikers Island
Now Ms. Davis has been arrested and accused of illegally buying and selling hundreds of prescription pills containing controlled substances to a drug dealer who was a cooperating witness, the authorities said Tuesday.
“I got you 30 Xanax,” Ms. Davis told the dealer in a February transaction that was secretly recorded by the F.B.I., according to a complaint. In January, she and the witness exchanged text messages. “If u run low let me kno!!!
the best!...,” she
Ms. Davis sold Adderall, Ambien, Xanax and other pills to the dealer from January through March, according to the complaint, which was filed by the office of Preet Bharara, the United States attorney in Manhattan, who announced the charges with George Venizelos, the head of the F.B.I.’s office in New York.
No further comment necessary, although as a public service this Forum will suggest that nobody bet on Ms. Davis to win, place or show.
