YOU KNEW IT WAS COMING, SPITZER’S CALL GIRLFRIEND IDENTIFIED!

THE GUV’S LADY ON THE SIDE!

The call girl at the center of the prostitution scandal that prompted Gov. Eliot Spitzer to resign in disgrace has been identified by a newspaper report as a 22-year-old aspiring musician who struggled in a broken home as a child.

The New York Times reported on its Web site Wednesday that the name of the woman — identified only as Kristen in court papers that claim Spitzer paid thousands of dollars for her services — is Ashley Alexandra Dupre.

New York lawyer Don D. Buchwald confirmed to The Associated Press that he represents Dupre, but he wouldn’t comment further.
