Maybe it was figurative sniper fire Hillary was ducking …

A former first lady who’s padded her resume with a soundbite about arriving in Bosnia, years ago, under sniper fire. A town with more than its fair share of people who really have been shot at by snipers. The two come together on Thursday at Terry Sanford High School. Good times.

Spitzer’s alleged hooker: the North Carolina connection

Finally found out where Ashley Alexandra Dupré lived when she was in North Carolina: Manteo, which is on the Outer Banks. No surprise she was a beach hottie, I guess. Here’s what People Magazine has to say about Ashley Youmans’ (pre-name changes) N.C. time:

But once in high school, something changed. In her sophomore year, she abruptly left home to move in with her dad and his new wife, attending Manteo High School in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. “It was my decision,” Ashley wrote on her MySpace page. “And I’ve never looked back.”

“She was a normal cool girl,” says former boyfriend Wayne Hunter, who dated Ashley until 2003. “She wasn’t a saint, but I would put her better than a lot of girls that I’ve known. [The recent scandal] has surprised me because she wasn’t really like that.”

While Ashley was popular with the boys, she had trouble making female friends while there. “She was the hottest girl in town when she was here and all the other girls gave her hell,” says Hunter. “They were jealous. The girls wouldn’t hang out with her. It was ridiculous. The girls here were really mean to her.”

Apparently, it was while she resided in N.C. that Dupre (then Youmans) got her first taste of naughtiness for pay:

According to a press release, Dupre visited Miami in 2003 to celebrate her 18th birthday. After fighting with a friend and getting thrown out of her hotel, Dupre found a nearby “Girls Gone Wild” bus, the company said. She signed legal papers and spent a full week on the bus, filming seven full-length tapes which included nudity and same-sex encounters, according to the company.

“I personally ended up buying her a Greyhound bus ticket back home to North Carolina,” said Girls Gone Wild founder and known douche, Joe Francis. After the footage turned up in the GGW archives, Francis rescinded a $1 million offer to Dupre to pose for his new magazine.

Spitzer’s gift to the world: Comedic opportunity

Salon.com’s Farhand Majoo says the NYT picked up a lot of bio on Ex. Gov. Spitzer’s prostitute from her Myspace page. And, the NYT sez, she lived in N.C. in 2003, but I’m damned if I can find out where. Working on that. She would have been known as Ashley Youmans back then, so if you knew her some years back, drop me a line, eh? Since then, according to the NYT, she’s changed her name legally to Ashley Rae Maika DiPietro, her stage name is Ashley Alexandra Dupré and, of course, she’s known in court documents as “Kristen.” The best part of her story, right now, is the commentary that wags have left behind.

From amiestreet.com, where you can buy her crappy dance tune:

an angel and a devil with the sultry voice of a high class woman from the streets, ashley brings out the uncivilized man in you as she rides you to ever higher moments for an intense ecstatic release. sensual and satisfying she earns diamonds in accolades. highly recommended and worth every penny. — client9 

And:

Not your typical New Yorker! Seriously, I wonder what it would take to make this young woman a household name? She has a wonderful throat and more women need to be like her. Bravissimo — Edna_Bambrick (Edna Bambrick is a minor Web phenomenon.)

From Ashley/Kristen’s Myspace blog (she just has the one entry from back in August):

From P-Drizzle Fo Rizzle: “Would you charge me $4,300 too, or can we use some of the time Spitzer didn’t use?”

From Silda: “Did he make you do that thing with his socks? I am SO not doing that again.”

And then there’s the Myspace profile of Client 9. I’m uploading a screen grab on the off chance Myspace takes it down.client-9.jpg

Well, sort of. If he were truly Fayettenam, handguns would have been involved.
