Spotted at Monday night’s party at the Cuban Center in Ybor City: Roger Stone, the flamboyant political consultant whom I remember from the 1970s and who was once part of the lobbying firm Black, Manafort & Stone and more recently has been the scourge of former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer. Roger was wearing a light beige double-breasted suit with pocket square and two-tone summer dress shoes: more stylish than ever. He’s working for former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, who competed briefly for the Republican presidential nomination and is now running as a third party candidate, calling for low government spending, light regulation and legalization of marijuana. To promote his candidacy, Roger is handing out not bumper stickers or buttons but cigarette rolling papers.
Just wanted to note this for the record.
