Spitzer’s call girl once worked for ring he busted: report
1 hour ago
NEW YORK (AFP) ï¿½?? The call girl whose tryst with disgraced New York Governor Eliot Spitzer brought about his downfall once worked for an escort service he busted, its former owner said.
The former pimp said he met and employed Ashley Dupre, at her initiative, when she was just 19.
“We knew that we had found a rock star escort when we met Ashley,” Jason Itzler told CNN’s Larry King Live late Thursday.
“She was spectacular. In my opinion, she was the hottest, sexiest escort we ever had,” Itzler said. “We were getting easily 2,000 dollar an hour for her, with three, four, five-hour minimums.”
Authorities shut down Itzler’s big-bucks New York Confidential escort service in January 2005, and he spent two years in jail.
His was one of seven or eight escort services Spitzer busted when he was New York state attorney general, Itzler said.
“How funny it is. What goes around does come around,” he said. “I’m the king of all pimps. He was the king of hypocrites.”
Itlzer said he lost contact with 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.
The woman federal wiretappers heard Spitzer arranging to meet at a Washington hotel in February was identified in court papers as “Kristen.”
But the New York Times later identified her as Dupre, 22, an aspiring singer from New Jersey. “I just don’t want to be thought of as a monster,” Dupre was quoted as telling the newspaper.
“This has been a very difficult time. It is complicated.”
Spitzer’s resignation Wednesday marked a stunning fall from grace for the former state attorney general once known as “Mr. Clean” for taking on organized crime and Wall Street corruption, and once seen as presidential material.
