Roger Stone, infamous GOP operative who formerly consulted for the NY State GOP, tells NY1 that he "told the FBI in November of Spitzer's possible involvement in a prostitution ring." An interview with Stone will be broadcast on tonight's "Inside City Hall."
Stone explains that he met "high-priced call girl" at an "adult club in Florida," "The service got a call to send somebody for an assignation with Eliot Spitzer, but he specified that he wanted a brunette, and this woman had just become a blonde, so the call went to someone else in the service." (By the was, infamous Spitzer hooker Ashley Dupre hired a PR firm!)
Last month, a lawyer for Stone revealed he had sent a letter to the FBI outlining the former governor's activities, including wearing black socks during sex acts, adding to the information overload of Hookergate details.
Here are some things to know about Stone: He may or may not have left a rude voicemail on Spitzer's dad's phone, calling Eliot a "phony, psycho piece of s---". His past Florida work includes "shutting down the 2000 presidential election recount effort in Miami-Dade County"; he was also fired from Bob Dole's 1996 presidential campaign "after Stone and his wife placed a personal ad in a swingers magazine looking for a threesome." And he has a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back.
