"Alleged Dominatrix-For-Hire Assistant State AG Quits And Lawyers Up"

In a press conference yesterday with high-powered attorney Gloria Allred at her side, Assistant State Attorney General and accused money-for-lashings dominatrix Alisha Smith resigned her post, but not before criticizing her employer for a breach of public decency. "All of [the AG's] actions towards me have been deeply disturbing because I have never accepted any money or payment from any outside source for anything," Smith said.

According to ABC, she later displayed two photos of her in spandex outfits, and Allred suggested that "Employers do not have the right to go on fishing expeditions into an employee private sexual activities and an employee should not have to sacrifice their privacy about their sex life in order to keep a job," except when people are dumb enough to share on Facebook.

Smith, who is allegedly known as "Alisha Spark" in the BDSM community, was praised by then-Attorney General Cuomo back in 2009 for helping to win a $5 billion settlement from Bank of America and others for securities fraud. Allred said Attorney General Schneiderman's office was investigating Smith because of a "source" in a New York Post article that told the paper she received payment for her services, which is illegal unless first cleared with her employers.

"The AG…called her in and asked her numerous questions about her private sexual activities, inquiring about whether or not she only brought boyfriends into her bedroom and what she did with them," Allred said. Smith, 36, has been suspended without pay from her $78K/year job for a month, and she and Allred haven't yet decided whether to sue the AG's office or the Post. Shneiderman's press secretary released a one-sentence statement on the matter: "Prior to the conclusion of the investigation, this office received the employee’s letter of resignation. The resignation was voluntary and accepted.” The AG's office also insists that the claims against Smith were serious and warranted investigation.

The Post's Andrea Peyser writes in typical fashion, "…she’s unemployed. Considering the bruising the kinky one inflicted on the reputation of the state, it’s for the best." Judging other (highly professional and effective!) people for their BDSM activities in New York in 2011? Oh, that's a paddlin'.
