Who is this Roger Stone? Did he really dupe CBS?
The hot rumor in New York political circles has Roger Stone, the longtime GOP activist, as the source for Dan Rather's dubious Texas Air National Guard "memos."

Anyone ever heard of him?

14. If you really want to know the answer to that --
here's a book suggestion: "When God Becomes a Drug" by Father Leo Booth. It absolutely nails the Christian Fundamentalists and anyone else (or group) that uses religion as an addictive process. (Hint: sexual repression, which almost always WILL erupt and often in the most perverted of ways, is a BIG factor.)

16. Thanks! I'll check it out
Interesting idea that people with addictive personalities would become addicted to unhealthy religion.

Hard-core Republicans seem to have a cluster of personality disorders, including a constant striving for power and money, addiction to drugs and alcohol, use of sex for power and release, etc.

Deeply unhappy people whose lives are a mess.

26. Found some more stuff.
Stone provides "ideas and direction, while Mr. Halloran...does the front-line work," said the Times. "In the attacks on Dr. Dean, Mr. Stone helped set the tone and direction while Mr. Halloran did the research. Mr. Halloran came up with Dr. Dean's hiring record as governor, for example, aides to Mr. Sharpton said."

5. He was managing Al Sharpton's campaign, wasn't he? Or funding it?
I have an article somewhere. But the Post is not always credible, to put it mildly.

12. Here you go! "Sleeping with the GOP."
Oh, do I remember well when this came out.

http://www.villagevoice.com/issues/0405/barrett.php

Wasn't it about this time he went after Dean in the debates about the blacks in government in VT? We posted it here, and were told to not worry about it....nothing to it. Of course there was something to it. He was being funded by the GOP.....and it was NOT ok.

24. Karl Rove
Edited on Tue Sep-21-04 05:15 PM by seemslikeadream
Career: In the years of the Watergage scandal, Rove's career as a big-time political handler began with a motley crew of friends and associates. He was chairman of the College Republicans when George Herbert Walker Bush was chairman of the state Republican Party in 1973. He won the presidency of the College Republicans in a race against Terry Dolan. The late Lee Atwater, who later became famous as the political attack dog for the Reagan-Bush team, managed Rove's campaign. Dolan went on to become a Soft Money pioneer by helping form the National Conservative Political Action Committee, then died of AIDS in 1986 at age 36. Dolan's advisers in his loss to Rove were Charlie Black, Paul Manafort and Roger Stone. Those three were later instrumental in the success of Ronald Reagan's 1984 campaign.

GOP Front Group Exposed

During the 2000 presidential recount battle in Florida, a group called Committee to Take Back Our Judiciary spent $150,000 attacking three pro-Democratic state Supreme Court justices who they felt threatened George W. Bush's hopes for victory. The group was a front for Bush donors trying to ensure his victory in Florida, in yet another example of Republican chicanery in the 2000 election. The Florida Elections Commission announced July 2003 that it will consider a $450,000 fine against the committee's chairwoman, Republican Mary McCarty, a Palm Beach County commissioner. The Florida Elections Commission concluded that McCarty violated several state election laws, including accepting contributions exceeding the $500 state limit and filing an inaccurate disclosure report. GOP political consultant Roger Stone persuaded McCarty to head the committee and that he supplied $150,000 from undisclosed sources.
http://www.literalpolitics.com/Florida/corruptionrev.ht...

Then, with the recount underway, the Bush junta sprang into action. Using $13.8 million in campaign funds, they recuited an A-list of Republican fixers, tough guys and lawyers. Roger Stone, the former Republican fixer and body builder of Reagan time who fled to Florida following a DC sex scandal, was summoned to orchestrate gangs of rightwing Cubans to harass election officials in Dade and Palm Beach counties. Marc Racicot, later to be elevated by Bush to chair of the RNC, staged similar white-collar riots, all designed to impede the counting of ballots. Jeb and the haughty Harris did their parts as institutional monkeywrenchers.

AT AGE 47, Roger Stone is already one of the great characters of Washington-a man who embodied the liberals' "decade of greed" talk in the 1980s, when his extensive Reagan-administration contacts helped him become one of the flashiest lobbyists in town. He was like a character in a Tom Wolfe novel, a D.C. master of the universe, who bragged about how much his suits cost and bopped around in a Jaguar (when he wasn't in his chauffeur-driven Mercedes). In 1985, The New Republic tagged him a "state-of-the-art sleazeball."

Governors San Pablo Casino Deal Fulfills Hopes of GOP Operatives By RICHARD BRENNEMAN
By RICHARD BRENNEMAN (08-20-04)

Gov. Arnold Schwarzeneggers award of exclusive Bay Area casino gaming rights to Casino San Pablo gives a multi-million-dollar plum to a project launched by a three-time GOP contender for the Philadelphia mayoralty and backed by the GOP operative who stage-managed the Brooks Brothers Riot during the 2000 Florida presidential recount.
The Republican governors move lobbed a political grenade at the hopes of the would-be developers of two East Bay tribal casinos, while handing the plum to Casino San Pablo.

The deal gives the Bay Area casino monopoly to the Lytton Pomo Indian band, whose plans were backed by Republican financier Samuel P. Katz, a three-time failed candidate for mayor of Philadelphia, and Roger Stone, a tribal casino lobbyist identified by the Florida Election Commission as the GOP dirty tricks operative who stage-managed the irate Republican mobs during the 2000 ballot recount in Florida.

25. A pic of Roger & Nydia Stone from a very trippy website
Wonder if Nydia was the mysterious Hispanic woman who gave the memos to Burkett?
