The New York Times identified "Kristen", the prostitute who caused Gov. Eliot Spitzer of New York to resign, as one Ashley Alexandra Duprée, 22 year-old of Jersey Shore.
“She was a young kid with typical teenage rebellion issues, but we are extremely close now,” Dupree's mother, Carolyn Capalbo, 46, told the New York Times on Wednesday.
Ashley Dupree, the escort the Emperor’s Club called Kristen is described as “an American, petite, very pretty brunette, 5 feet 5 inches, and 105 pounds.” According to the NY Times Dupree was charging $1,000 an hour for her services.
His wife by his side, Eliot Spitzer resigned as governor of New York on Wednesday.
“To every New Yorker and to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for, I sincerely apologize. I look at my time as governor with a sense of what might have been,” said Eliot Spitzer.
His resignation was triggered by a federal affidavit that linked him to a high-class call girl service and according to which he met "Kristen" aka Ashley Dupree and other prostitutes at least eight times.
