July 17- Manhattan Madam and New York gubernatorial candidate Kristin Davis celebrated her first birthday since her release from prison at Manhattan lounge 49 Grove. Davis also used the event as a launch of her petition drive to get on the ballot.Davis needs 15,000 signatures to run.
Partygoers were greeted with semi nude models decorated with Davis’ name as well as marijuana leaves. Campaign workers made rounds asking everyone registered to vote in New York State to sign a petition.
Davis said in the Daily Caller, “Either way I am confident that I can collect more than enough signatures from cadres of escorts, ex-escorts, strippers, dancers, dommes, gays, lesbians, Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters, U.S. Marines, rappers who revere the pimp or other lovers of freedom …”
Freedom , is at the focal point of the Davis campaign. During a short speech campaign worker Frank Morano outlined her platform- the belief in the legalization of Gay marriage, prostitution, and marijuana as well as her anti lobbyist stance.
“We’re just focused on the freedom that we’re advocating right now,” Davis said after Morano introduced her.
“I think it’s important to mention that there is a proposal to build a mosque near the site of 9/11 and I want to go on the record to say I oppose that.” The crowd cheered after the madam condemned the proposal until a man in the audience, later identified as Scott Pellegrino, challenged her.
Pellegrino, who came in support Davis asked, “ Are you saying the people who are trying to start the mosque blew up the buildings?” He was met with jeers from the crowd , one woman yelled it was his “right as an American” to say his peace.
Davis responded that building the mosque would “send a message to the terrorists who decimated the city that its ‘okay’ and I don’t want it there.” After she quickly gave the microphone back to Morano who introduced civil rights activist and comedian Randy Credico who is running for Senate.
Credico stated that he was not opposed to the mosque being built.
Pellegrino was ejected from the party despite Morano’s objections.
“I agree with her on the issues on gay marriage and prostitution to an extent and legalizing marijuana,” said Pellegrino. “I was extremely upset to hear her crazy, right-wing, racist view on the mosque. She seemed to collectively blame all Muslims, I tried to clarify.”
He continued ,“ I couldn’t really hear her response over all the people shouting me down – including Roger Stone, the filthy racist Nixon dirty trickster who is running her campaign. This is one of his campaigns to help the Republicans; I don’t think Kristen Davis understands that.”
Pellegrino also said that Stone threatened to “punch his face in” after he spoke out.
