Did This Hooker Sleep With Eliot Spitzer Or Not?The story of Kristin Davis, who the Post fingered yesterday as not only a high-priced madam, but also another hooker visited by Eliot Spitzer, is actually getting more interesting. Why? Because every new story that comes out makes it less clear if Davis actually has any connection to Spitzer. The Post says she does! The Daily News says she doesn't! And the Times doesn't really say anything! Verrrrrrrrrrryyy interesting. Somebody has screwed up on this story, big time. After the jump, we speculate—plus, we have some insight into the Daily News' big "Madam's Black Book" cover story today.

After getting scooped on the Davis-Spitzer story by the Post yesterday (or not?), the NYDN today strikes back with a cover story touting how they have exclusively obtained her black book with all her clients. We were offered the same black book yesterday, in an unsolicited email. The guy doing the offering was looking for a cash offer himself. I'm pretty positive it's the same black book that the NYDN ran with for their story, because the snippet we got includes some of the same info included in their story. Wonder how the paper got it? We'll let you know if we find out.

Not only that: the NYDN says in their story, "But law enforcement officials yesterday shot down a report that then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been identified as a regular client of bottle blond Davis." With no real elaboration.

Meanwhile, the Post today reports that Jessica Cutler, the whorish DC blogger "Washingtonienne," actually worked for Davis' escort service for a while. Cutler refused to say whether she did or not. More importantly, the Post refers to it as "a Manhattan call-girl ring that counted Eliot Spitzer as a client." Which would seem to indicate they're standing behind their story yesterday.

One thing is clear: If either paper had this story really nailed down and air tight, they would be giving it much more play. If the Daily News had rock-solid proof that the Post fucked up on the Spitzer connection, they would certainly make that a blowout story. Likewise for the Post—which didn't even put the Kristin Davis story on its cover today, opting instead for a piece on Yankee Hideki Matsui's wedding. And the fact that the Times, which has the most rigorous sourcing standards of all three papers, hasn't come down on either side of this tawdry but certainly newsworthy story makes us believe that hard facts are hard to come by.

So why not settle for informed speculation and inside rumors, then? If you have any insight into how this story is playing out, email us.
