LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The Alisha Spark aka Alisha Smith photos scandal has ties to Jade Viken (real name Edythe Maa) claims reports. Alisha Spark had at night been working allegedly as dominatrix Alisha Smith at fetish parties, claims a new report. Now her daytime job has suspended her without pay. That daytime employer is the New York State Attorney General’s Office.
Alisha Spark had worked during the day as an attorney for the New York State Attorney General’s Office. During her tenure, she received recognition from her employer and a roughly $78,000 a year job. Now the Office has put her on suspension.
In a statement to news, the Office’s spokesperson Eric Schneiderman states that “The employee has been suspended without pay, effective immediately, pending an internal investigation.”
The Office would not confirm why Smith was suspended. But a news report this weekend claims that the Office has a policy that employees must “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.”
The report claims that Smith at night became Alisha Spark, a dominatrix, and may have been charging clients. Among her reported friends is allegedly Jade Vixen, aka Edythe Maa.
In September 2009, LALATE profiled Vixen following her appearance on the Howard Stern show with Anju McIntyre.
Vixen states online “Some of my favorite fiction authors are William Gibson, Jeff Noon, Bret Easton Ellis, Neal Stephenson, and Chuck Palahniuk. Non-fiction: Richard Dawkins, Sherry Turkle, Ray Kurzweil, Anthony Bourdain, Mark Kurlansky, and Stephen Levitt.”
In December 2008, Vixen, Anthony Octavian, and Daniel Krieg were in a love triangle that left both men dead. Daniel Krieg killed Anthony Ottaviano and later shot himself.
Anthony Ottaviano was an Ivy Leaguer, an attorney at the prestigious firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison. But he had a side passion – the world of dominatrix. His girlfriend was Vixen. Together the two would dress up and party the night away. That is until Kreig, reportedly waiting for Maa, saw her with Anthony and got so furious that the shot him dead.
Then he took Jade Viken and reportedly drove for several hours until Viken convinced him to let her go. When he did, she called Pennsylvania police who found him. When police approached, Krieg killed himself.
