Remember the high end prostitution ring that brought about the political demise of then New York Governor Elliot Spitzer in 2008? 22 year old Ashley Dupre, aka Kristin Davis was dubbed the “Manhattan Madam” at the time. Then she became buddies with Roger Stone and ran for Governor herself. Washington Post:

In 2010, Stone was a strategist for Davis’s campaign for New York governor, a race in which she garnered more than 20,000 votes — less than 1 percent of the total ballots cast. In the years since she has become one of Stone’s closest confidants, tending to his travel and speaking schedule.

As for Stone, she said: “I feel like he’s very misunderstood.”

Davis is the latest of multiple current and former Stone associates to be contacted by Mueller’s team. His longtime connections Sam Nunberg and Michael Caputo — both of whom held posts in Trump’s 2016 campaign — have said they were questioned about Stone. Jason Sullivan, who briefly worked as Stone’s social media coordinator, appeared at D.C. federal court after receiving a subpoena. And Stone’s driver, John Kakanis, has also been subpoenaed.

“They seem to be going back with him and picking up people who worked for Roger, and some people who are disgruntled,” Davis said.

Another former Stone aide, Andrew Miller, is seeking to quash a subpoena he received from Mueller’s team. Davis said she was unsure whether she would attempt to do the same.

“Roger’s one of my best friends,” says Davis about Stone. “I have nothing bad to say about him.” She said “in terms of Russian collusion I know nothing,” and called the Mueller probe a “witch hunt.”
