This Saturday, January 12, 2013, in a unanimous vote at their convention, the Queens Libertarian Party Endorsed Ex-Madam, Kristin Davis, as their candidate for Mayor of NYC in 21013.
Kristin Davis, the former Manhattan Madam, who supplied prostitutes for Eliot Spitzer, was convicted for promoting prostitution and served four months on Riker’s Island. Since her arrest and motivated by the inequities in our criminal justice system, Davis has become one of New York City’s most vocal Libertarian activists and ran for Governor in 2010 on a Libertarian platform of decriminalizing marijuana, marriage equality and legalizing casino gambling.
The Queens Libertarian Party is the largest Libertarian group in the state and their early endorsement of Davis sets the tone for her to become the official Libertarian Party Candidate in the 2013 NYC Mayoral Race.
Libertarian Party Presidential candidate Gary Johnson won over 42,000 votes in New York State last year. Davis is expected to announce her candidacy in early 2013 and will file for campaign matching funds under the city’s campaign finance system. Davis opposes the NYPD Stop and Frisk program, supports legalizing marijuana, opposes the restriction on soft drinks to 16oz and favors casino gambling in NYC over upstate.
