New York State Out Does California, Has A Real Whore Running For Governor

October 18, 2010

Kristin Davis, the one-time Manhattan madam who says she supplied call girls to Eliot Spitzer when he was New York’s governor, shares a stage tonight with state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo and all the other candidates in the only debate of New York’s gubernatorial race.

Davis is running for governor as the candidate of the Anti-Prohibition Party.

She was guaranteed a place tonight when Republican Carl Paladino demanded that Cuomo debate all the third-party hopefuls, and Cuomo agreed.

“It won’t be hard to stand out in a crowd of middle-aged white men so bring it on,” Davis wrote on her website when her participation was assured. “The good news is that I have 11 days to figure out what to wear.”

Getting noticed should not be a problem for Davis, who says she is 35, sports tattoos on both arms and is routinely described by New York’s tabloids as everything from an “escort empress” to a “busty bottle blonde.”

Jerry Brown aid calls Meg Whitman a whore, New York has the real thing running for governor.

New Yorkers Income Falls For The First Time In 70 Years, Rich Folks Fleeing

October 6, 2010

The recession put a 3.1 percent dent in the personal incomes of New York state residents, who endured their first full-year decline in more than 70 years, according to a report released Tuesday. Paychecks or net earnings tumbled 5.4 percent, while dividends, interest and rent slid 8.4 percent, to a grand total of nearly $908 billion, the state comptroller’s report said.

 
 

Not only did New Yorkers’ personal incomes fall “almost twice” as much as they did in the nation as a whole, but they have yet to recover to pre-recession levels, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli said.

The drop occurred even though the job-destroying recession was milder in New York than in the rest of the country.

Cigarette Tax Will Mean $10 Packs. New York Promotes Indian Givers

June 20, 2010

MYFOXNY.COM – Almost $11 for a pack of cigarettes? It might soon become a very real reality in many stores in New York City.

The cigarette tax in New York would jump $1.60 a pack under a tentative deal struck between Governor David Paterson and state government leaders.

The proposal is part of an emergency budget bill which is due for a vote on Monday.

In the city, which levies steep taxes of its own on tobacco products, a pack of cigarettes would come with a tax of $5.85, making it the nation’s first city to break $5.

By at least one estimate, half the cigarettes consumed in New York are purchased from Native Americans who don’t collect and pay state taxes.

A new proposal would attempt to limit the number of cigarettes purchased from tribes. Gov Patterson is an Indian Giver…….
