Disgraced Former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer Discusses Sanctity of Marriage on ABC's This Week
News Busters - almost 5 years
Is Eliot Spitzer - a man who had to resign as New York's governor due to a sex scandal involving hookers - someone that should be invited on a serious political talk show to discuss the sanctity of marriage? As the answer is certainly "No," consider the delicious irony of Spitzer appearing on ABC's This Week Sunday avowing as it pertains to same-sex marriage, "The president is saying, as I said as governor, others have said around the nation, two people should be able to enter a civil relationship of love that goes on forever" (video follows with transcript and commentary): ELIOT SPITZER: The fact is, civil rights and the discussion of civil rights does not stop merely because we have economic issues to think about as well. Of course, economics will dictate at the end of the day November's outcome. But the notion that we would stall on civil rights issues that are of enormous magnitude and how we define ourselves a ...

Spitzer bombs … again
Republican America Blogs - almost 5 years
Eliot Spitzer once was on top of the world. From 1999 to 2007, he became nationally prominent as the hard-charging New York state attorney general who took on Wall Street and went after morally bankrupt practices, such as prostitution. Riding his tough crusader image, Mr. Spitzer was elected the Empire State’s governor in 2006 with a record 66 percent of the vote. Since then, however, Mr. Spitzer’s life has been almost completely devoid of triumphs. He took office as governor on Jan. 1, 2007 in a coronation-like ceremony, but his first year in office is best remembered for a spying scandal involving the state police, bitter fights over same-sex marriage and the rights of illegal immigrants, accusations that the governor swore at legislators who disagreed with him, and miserable approval ratings. In March 2008, 14 months after taking office, Gov. Spitzer was forced to resign when an FBI wiretap caught him arranging an encounter with prostitute Ashley Alexandra Dupre. (The govern ...

  • 2008
    Age 22
    Dupré appeared on 20/20 on Friday, November 21, 2008 where she was interviewed by Diane Sawyer about her feelings about being an "escort," and the emotional effect it had upon her when the encounter with Spitzer was made public.
    More Details Hide Details On July 10, 2011 VH1 premiered Famous Food, a reality series featuring seven celebrities. Dupré came in third; first and second were given a partnership stake in the Lemon Basket.
    On July 7, 2008, E! reported that Dupré was engaged in talks about a proposed reality show with Handprint Entertainment, the same firm that managed the reality television careers of Nicole Richie and Pamela Anderson, and that she was considering a move from New York to Los Angeles.
    More Details Hide Details One of the concepts reportedly being considered was a dating program similar to A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila. Dupré will reportedly be working with the production company Reveille Productions (responsible for the TV shows The Office and The Biggest Loser) to create a reality dating show based on the theme that everyone has skeletons in their closet.
    In July 2008, a woman named Amber Arpaio filed a federal lawsuit against Dupré for defamation and invasion of privacy, claiming Dupré used her lost driver's license to appear on a Girls Gone Wild video.
    More Details Hide Details Arpaio also sued "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis. Dupré began singing professionally when Jerry Cooper, a musician she was living with, heard her singing the Aretha Franklin version of the song "Respect" in the shower. "She had this huge voice for such a little girl," Cooper told MTV, "and so I just kind of went in and said, 'Hey, come upstairs when you're done with this, and let's work on some songs.'" According to Dupré, she then toured and recorded with Cooper's band, networking with people in the music industry. In 2005, she formed a company named Pasche New York, an entertainment business intended to promote her music career. In the summer of 2006, she made an appearance in a music video for the song "Pop Off", performed by rapper Mysterious. Shortly after The New York Times published their profile of Dupré, her single "Move Ya Body" set a record for how fast it commanded the top price on the music-download site AmieStreet.com, reaching the site's maximum of US$.98 per download in five hours. Another single, "What We Want", was played more than 3 million times on the Internet after the scandal erupted. While some speculated that she may have earned as much as US$300,000–1.4 million from download sales of her singles on Amie Street, others estimated her earnings at as low as US$13,720. Dupré's music came to be featured in mash up YouTube videos, blending her tracks with those of established artists.
    On April 28, 2008, Dupré filed suit against Francis and two of his companies alleging their exploitation of Dupré's name and image, seeking US$10 million in punitive damages, but in July of that year she decided to drop the suit after Francis released footage showing her agreeing to be filmed.
    More Details Hide Details
    On February 13, 2008, Dupré travelled by Amtrak from New York's Pennsylvania Station to Washington, D.C., for an assignation at the Mayflower Hotel with New York Governor Eliot Spitzer.
    More Details Hide Details The arrangements had been made by phone between Spitzer and a booker at Emperors Club VIP, and were monitored by federal investigators who had initiated a wiretap after his bank had filed a suspicious activity report regarding money transfers by Spitzer to a front company operated by the escort service. Caught on the FBI's wiretap was Dupré's response to the booker's mention of other escorts' difficulties with Spitzer. "I don't think he's difficult," said Dupré. "I mean it's just kind of like, whatever, I'm here for a purpose. I know what my purpose is. I am not a … moron, you know what I mean." On March 6, federal authorities arrested four individuals involved with Emperors Club VIP, charging them under federal prostitution and money laundering laws. Initial news reports and court documents did not identify the agency's clients or call girls by name, referring to Spitzer as "Client 9" and to Dupré as "Kristen".
    By 2008, Dupré was living in a ninth-floor apartment in the Flatiron District of Manhattan.
    More Details Hide Details She maintains that she was concerned about her ability to pay her rent after the man she was living with left following her discovery that he had fathered two children.
  • 2006
    Age 20
    In 2006, Dupré changed her legal name from Youmans to her stepfather's name of DiPietro, stating that she regarded him as "the only father I have known."
    More Details Hide Details In the same year, she answered an ad by the escort agency Emperors Club VIP, and began working for the agency under the alias Kristen.

  • 2003
    Age 17
    Jason Itzler, who ran a New York escort service called NY Confidential from 2003 to 2005, met Dupré while she was working as a cocktail waitress at the Hotel Gansevoort in 2004. Dupré began working for him on the side, using the alias Victoria. NY Confidential was shut down and Itzler sent to prison by Spitzer's New York State Attorney General's office in 2005.
    More Details Hide Details Dupré subsequently worked for NY Confidential's former CFO, who had opened Velvet Traces in Brooklyn. Acquaintances stated that Dupre had expensive tastes, including Cartier and Louis Vuitton consumer goods and trips to Saint-Tropez, France. The sources also stated that several of her tattoos, in Latin and Arabic, were mantras to help keep her clean—including "What does not destroy me makes me stronger," "Protect your own," and "Never give up." None admitted suspecting that she was a sex worker, believing her statements that the cash for her lifestyle came from her wealthy parents.
