(Newser) – Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer was a client of an upscale prostitution operation busted Tuesday in Manhattan, the New York Post reports. The news comes less than two weeks after Spitzer stepped down for patronizing a similar operation based in New Jersey. And as that saga had "Kristen," the paper charges Spitzer's favored woman here might have been proprietor Kristin "Billie" Davis.

Davis "personally interfaced with Spitzer a number of times" since 2003, a source told the paper, a charge Spitzer's camp denied. "Mr. Spitzer was not ever a client of Ms. Davis," said a spokeswoman. Davis' service, Wicked Models, offered out call girls for $1,000 an hour, the Post reports, and the 32-year-old California native boasted a client list 10,000 names long that included "sports superstars."
