Online Dish: NY Prosecutor 'Spanked' by AG's Office for S&M Gig

Talk about being "tied" down by work. Who used to be a well-respected lawyer working in the New York Attorney General's office has now been suspended for moonlighting as a dominatrix.

According to the New York Post, Alisha Smith, 36, becomes "Alisha Spark" at night and performs at S&M events for cash. A fetish source spoke to the post saying, "They pay her to go to the events. She dominates people, restrains them and whips them."

The Post says at a recent event, "she posed for photos with fellow fetishists, she was espied wearing a skin-tight, see-through latex dress with heart-shaped pasties."

The AG's office suspended her Friday after Smith's side job was brought to their attention by the Post. She makes $78,825 annually at the AG's office.

"The employee has been suspended without pay, effective immediately, pending an internal investigation," a spokesman for state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman told The Post.

No word on why Smith is being professionally spanked. Sources did tell The Post that the AG's office 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."

Her attorney, Marshall Mintz, would not comment on her side work or on whether she's been paid.

This hard core scandal comes just three years after Smith was praised for "whipping" Bank of America and landing a $5 billion settlement in a securities-fraud case.

So if Smith is good at her day job, should she be punished for her night job? Do you "object"?

Viewers serve up their thoughts on Facebook:

Ricks Piano Bar writes: "Professionally it doesn't "look" good, but in this economy, people are just trying to make extra money. And it's too bad her two worlds had to collide. So if perception is reality, then I don't believe the NYers will want this person to continue that sort of nightlife."
