Lawyer for NY Attorney General Punished for Dominatrix Side Gig

leather Lawyer for NY Attorney General Punished for Dominatrix Side GigAlisha Smith, a 36-year-old lawyer at the New York State Office of the Attorney General was suspended without pay after the New York Post got wind that the settlement pro spent her nights making very different kinds of binding agreements. According to the Post‘s sources, this matter had less to do with the nature of Ms. Smith’s outside employment, but the fact that she had a second job at all:

The Attorney General’s Office that requires employees to “obtain prior approval from the [Employment Conduct Committee] before engaging in any outside pursuit … from which more than $1,000 will be received or is anticipated to be received.”

Though if Ms. Smith had been making some extra scratch by selling her knitting on Etsy or cutting hair (or hipster panhandling, for that matter), we doubt the A.G.’s office would be so quick to dismiss her. And we’d understand if Ms. Smith worked at the office of district attorney, since Cyrus Roberts Vance Jr. is one botched sex case from getting his own Law and Order: SVU spin-off.

But what is Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office worried about here…that Ms. Smith will suddenly confuse her two jobs and misinterpret a request to “debrief” during work hours? Or that Ms. Smith may have been secretly given counsel to fetish buddy Jade Vixen, she of the several dead ex-boyfriends? (The two women were apparently “close,” according to the Post.)

It’s unfortunate that Ms. Smith has been suspended from her job without pay, but then again that just frees up more time for Alisha Smith to become Alisha Spark. And though Ms. Smith was making a nice salary up there at the A.G. office ($78,825 annually), she could make a lot more if she devoted herself full-time to her dominatrix gig (where prices per session can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars). And come on: you know there are a bunch of guilty Wall Street bankers and business CEOs that would pay good money to pretend they were getting spanked by a lawyer working for the state.

    Slut shaming at its best. The salacious Post article was really something, especially the bizarre shift from Alisha Smith to her friend Jade Vixen. By the time I finished the article I was pretty sure that the Post wanted me to think of Alisha Smith as a potential murderess. I think Kander & Ebb have a new musical idea on their hands. Except that one of them is now deceased. Oh, well. Think of the role for Catherine Zeta-Jones!

  3. Please be aware; Dominatrix (or Escorting) is not a prostitution if you look at Escort Girl Guide web sites. So there should not a punishment. But if she did not declare her revenue, which means she did not pay tax, this is a different story.

    I agree with Alice Dominatrix is not a form of prostitution, but this news had surprised me a bit who would think a lawyer would have such kind of sideline. @Alice this kind of job don’t have a fixed salary I guess she don’t want to reveal her sideline to other people that’s why she don’t declare her revenue for this sideline.  Lawyers are one of the most respected people specially if a lawyer had built a good reputation and have a good credibility which just remind me of my lawyer Nicholas Fortuna
