THE HIRED GUN WHO WENT AFTER SPITZER

24 03 2008

 from Raw Story:

GOP operative wrote investigators in November

In the 1970s, he was on the payroll of Richard Nixon’s now-infamous Committee to Reelect the President. In the 1980s, he helped George Bush Sr. trounce Michael Dukakis by floating a racially charged ad about the Democratic governor’s role in furloughing a black inmate. And in 2000, he organized the so-called “Brooks Brothers” riot, forcing the shutdown of a recount in Miami-Dade County, Florida, that may have turned the election to George W. Bush.

Last November, his lawyer wrote a letter to the FBI. In it, GOP political operative Roger Stone’s attorney, Paul Rolf alleged that New York Governor Eliot Spitzer “used the services of high-priced call girls” while in Florida, basing his information on a “social contact.”

The letter, dated Nov. 19, said Stone gleaned the information from “a social contact in an adult themed club.”

“The governor has paid literally tens of thousands of dollars for these services,” Rolf wrote. “It is Mr. Stone’s understanding that the governor paid not with credit cards or cash but through some pre-arranged transfer.”

It continued, including particular detail — Stone’s lawyer wrote that the governor hadn’t taken off his calf-length socks “during the sex act.”
