Rupert Murdoch to Troops: Get Me That Hooker!
On Monday when the most staid newspaper in the city broke the most salacious story in recent memory — soon-to-be former Gov. Eliot Spitzer's undressed as "Client No. 9" of a high-priced prostitution ring — sources say media mogul Rupert Murdoch put out the word that heads will roll unless the New York Post was first interview to "Kristen," the hooker with whom Spitzer fucked himself right out of office.
As the Post chased a girl whose first name is actually "Kristen" in Connecticut and the Daily News dispatched people to Florida, the Old Gray Lady scooped the city's tabloids on the sensational sex scandal again today, tracking down and interviewing Ashley Alexandra Dupre, aka "Kristen" right in our backyard.
In fact, according to the story, Dupre, a 22-year-old Jersey girl whose real name is Ashley Youmans, was in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Monday for a hearing on the case against her former employer Emperors Club VIP, at the same time everyone scrambled to match the Times' initial scoop published first on its web site.
