According to a tipster, infamous GOP dirty trickster and Brooks Brothers Riot puppet master Roger Stone is on the ground in NY-20. Our tipster informs us that Stone dined at Loporto’s in Troy Friday night with a woman and three men in suits. They were marking up Excel spreadsheets over some calamari and "speaking low."
Our tipster asks "Why is he here?"
I’d say that’s rather obvious, no?
Scott Murphy wants domestic absentee ballots to be counted starting on Wednesday, which by law they should be. But the state GOP and Tedisco don’t want the ballots to be counted until April 13, the deadline for receipt of overseas absentee ballots. A judge should rule on the matter soon.
I’m sure Stone would love more time to work his magic. Helping the FBI find their way to Eliot Spitzer’s call girl, Jack Abramoff’s Indian gaming operation, Dan Rather and the TANG documents and the Brooks Brothers riot during the Miami/Dade recount are all on his Greatest Hits list.
If he has interest in the race, I can’t imagine it’s limited to a citizen’s noble interest in a fair election process.
