C*ll girls lawyer blasts the media for use of photos
March 15, 2008 2:53pm CST
The lawyer for the girl linked to the downfall of Gov. Eliot Spitzer lashed out at the media on Friday for thrusting the 22-year-old woman into the "public glare" without her consent and publishing revealing photos. Since her identity was disclosed, newspapers and Web sites have splashed photos of Ashley Alexandra Dupre in suggestive poses on front and inside pages. Dupre was known as "Kristen" in court documents accusing Spitzer of paying thousands for p*ost*tutes' services

Well, the images were available on MySpace, as I understand, which puts them fairly well in the public eye already. I think someone should be careful of the actions they take, in this case being a lady of ill repute, with an eye to how it would feel if they had to endure public scrutiny. Now that she's been a call-me-up-girl, I have a hard time getting all upset that her image has been splashed everywhere.

I think that this is very unnecessary and is just sensationalism to satisfy the public's craving of seedy gossip. On a small scale, we're getting what the senator paid so much for in not only cash but, also, personal demolition. And nobody is going to be shoving us into the spotlight for it.
