NY Asst. AG Quits After Story Claiming She Was Paid To Be Dominatrix

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The lawyer for a former New York assistant attorney general says her client could sue the AG’s office or the New York Post, which published a story claiming she moonlighted as a dominatrix.

Alisha Smith announced on Monday that she has quit her job and denied that she was ever paid for performing as a dominatrix at S&M parties as the Post story had suggested, citing a “fetish source.”

1010 WINS’ Al Jones Hears From Smith And Her Lawyer

“I have never accepted any money from any outside source for anything,” Smith told reporters, including 1010 WINS’ Al Jones.

Smith said she was suspended without pay by the Attorney General’s office without the opportunity to dispute the allegations.

“I was devastated to find that my employer would have taken the word of a tabloid and not even give me a chance to respond,” Smith said.

Smith said she thinks she knows what got her suspended.

“Was the New York Attorney General’s office trying to save the Attorney General from what they feared could be a political embarrassment?” she asked.

Smith would not discuss her personal life, but did admit to having a dominant personality. Her high-profile attorney, Gloria Allred, said “she’s dominant in her intimate life.”

“I know it is rather shocking that a woman does in fact have a strong and a dominant personality,” Allred said.

Allred said Smith is considering her legal options, which could include suing the Attorney General’s office or the Post for running the story saying she worked under the pseudonym “Alisha Spark.”

“Since Miss Smith was not paid for anything involving her sex life, we believe that it was completely improper for her to be asked these intrusive questions,” Allred said.

    Wow! There are still those who think homosexuality is abhorrent sexual behavior. Shall we pull homosexuals from political office?
    A person’s private life among consenting adults is just that private.
    It does not not interfere with her ability to perform the duties as they are outlined within her department.
    Shall we spend the time and tax dollars publicly defending the sex lives of every American citizen?
    Of I am course not. However, I am certain if we were to open the doors to everyone’s private room and peeked in, there would be something of which someone somewhere would not approve.
    I really wish the US would dismount its puritanical high horse and realize yes, people have intercourse.. As long as the adults are consenting, this is none of our business.

    It’s her personal life, as long as it does not intrude on her professional life. Stop wasting our tax dollars.

      what is done about Meme Meyagi living in usa? – please take your meds or go see a psychiatrist. no sane person would write the same thing every day in every story. you really do need help.

    She denied being paid for being a dominatrix, but did not deny that she was actually a dominatrix…should one’s personal life remain their personal life?

  5. PL says:

    I agree with Pete. This is aberrant behavior. At a certain level, one’s personal life has to be consistent with their professional life.

  6. maggie says:

    She saw somebody some where maybe from the AG’s office and the post ran the story and somebody got scared because they know they met prior to the AG’s office. What they should do is look into the back ground of the person who fired her and a few of his top notch friends and the NY post may have a real front page story.

    this country is out f control when it comes to personal privacy . what shes does on her own time has nothing to do with her job performance .. its much the same as if someone choices to smoke a joint on a saturday nite , most companies feel they are not fit to be employed by them , its ridiculos.

  8. M.A.D says:

    SO!! SINCE WHEN IS OUR PERSONAL LIFE OR FETTISHES THE EMPLOYER’S BUSINESS?? SHE WAS HIRED NOT ELECTED.

  9. chilloutandtakerodoutofars says:

    oowwww please. First of all this is sexism at its best. Even if she was accepting money, so what? It is a stupid, sexist law (if she was charged w/ prositution). Secondly, I am sure you are not a saint honey! Most humans are perves (and yes I am speaking for myself as well).

    Paid or not paid, do we need a Sex Freak on top of all the corrupt DA’s? What has our Legal System become! Do we still HAVE a Legal System?
