Chez, the blogger who writes Deus Ex Malcontent reported that Ed Rendell is screwed, literally. Chez is a veteran network news producer and manager, a regular contributor to the Huffington Post, and a writer who's been featured in the New York Observer and the Village Voice. He also is the author of a book called Dead Star Twilight.
Chez reports the madcap radio duo, Opie and Anthony, on Sirius/Xm Satellite Radio interviewed Kristin Davis Of course you will remember Kristen Davis as the madam who rang Eliot Spitzer's Steepel Tower. He liked the way she rode his disco stick I guess. She liked it so much she spent four months in Rikers for her role in the scandal.
Well, during the interview, she admitted that someone she called "Governor X" employed her services at least ten times during a year-and-a-half period. She apparently wrote his name down on a piece of paper and showed it to Opie and Anthony, who then proceeded to spend the next ten minutes dropping hints that a 4-year-old could've deciphered.
"What, did he pay her in coal and steel?"
"I guess he had a little filly on the side."
"Did he used to be an Eagles scout?"
The whole thing ended with show regular Jim Norton making a hysterical Freudian slip during the plugs for his upcoming gigs.
"I'll be in Pennsylvania this weekend," he said, then corrected himself to the sound of everyone's laughter.
Oh but it get's better. Over at the PA Conservative Bloggers Nathan asks the question "Who Is Governor X?"
Which leads us to the Rush and Molly column at the New York Daily News.
Here is their account. As it turns out Kristen didn't mean her services personally but in a business sense.
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.
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.
Still, it's hard not to be intrigued by Annie's detailed story. She contends that, in the spring of 2006, Davis' agency booked her for an out-of-state date with a man identified as "Michael."
"He picked me up in an Italian sports car," says Annie. "He was in his 30s, handsome enough to be an actor, an impeccable dresser. I wouldn't think he'd have a problem getting girls.
"We went to a restaurant where the governor was dining at another table with two or three other men. Michael said the governor was a client of his. He introduced me to him. I thought it was odd that he'd introduce someone he'd hired, but the governor was very gracious. It was a brief meeting. Later, Michael and I went to an apartment our agency kept. We had sex.
"A couple of days later, Michael booked another appointment. He was supposed to come to the same apartment. I buzzed him in. When I opened the door, it wasn't Michael. It was the governor. He was smiling. I knew what was happening. I was okay with it.
"He was a very standard client. He didn't take the full hour. There was no exchange of money. Michael handled the payment.
"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. There wasn't a lot of conversation. It wasn't a girlfriend experience, but he was relaxed. He was very appreciative, like I was giving him a sort of affection he wasn't getting elsewhere. Later I found out he was married. His wife is quite prominent in her own right." (Annie and Davis say Gov. X is free to say he didn't pay for sex, since "Michael" took care of the bills.)
A reminder- a governor spokesperson denies any invovlement. Hmmmmmm.... Shush girl, shut your lips, do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips.
It is worth noting that political gossip howls on the Libertarian Republican where Chuck Ardo, Rendell's media person, is resigning in December.
Ardo, though, is vehemently denying that his boss's alleged fling with a Call Girl has anything to do with his resignation. “No way, no how..." he said.
No wonder they can't pass a budget. How do you put in a line item for that expense?
(Snickers from the crowd.) Of course you remember that famous quote "Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me breasts!"
