Late Night: Who is Governor X?
Since it’s summertime, it must be hookertime. More salacious details from Eliot Spitzer’s callgirl, who now says there’s another "prominent" governor (with a wife "prominent in her own right") in her 2006 appointment book, corroborated by ex-madam Kristen Davis.
Now the elegant blond courtesan, whom we’ll continue to call "Annie," is talking about three "dates" she allegedly had with another state’s chief executive, who we’ll call Gov. X.
That sounds like a current governor who was governor in 2006.
Though Annie’s former boss, ex-madam Kristin Davis, corroborates that Gov. X was a client, his spokesman flatly denies that the married politician has ever hired hookers.
So the New York Daily News knows which governor and asked his spokesman. They got a denial — but won’t print the name. And the denial that the boss "has ever hired hookers" leaves open exactly the scenario "Annie" describes with the governor whom a previous client, "Michael," introduced her to:
He was a very standard client. He didn’t take the full hour. There was no exchange of money. Michael handled the payment.
That wasn’t "Annie"’s only date with "Gov. X:"
I had two more dates with the governor. Never in public. Always for just an hour, around dinner time. He’d arrive at the apartment in a suit. I never had a problem with him, like I did with Spitzer. He was always nice.
"Annie" did some research, or maybe just stumbled upon this information about Gov. X after her dates with him:
Later I found out he was married. His wife is quite prominent in her own right.
Given that any Democratic governor would likely have been brought down right alongside Eliot Spitzer, can we safely presume this is a GOP governor? What governor’s spokesman issued such a carefully parsed denial that the boss has ever hired hookers? What governor’s team is media-savvy enough (about women’s accusations) to stop the NYDN from printing his name? What current governor’s wife could be described as "prominent in her own right?"
Is it irresponsible to speculate? It is irresponsible not to.
So which governor’s "fresh hell" is this?
