The source of the fake memos -- Roger Stone?

September 22, 2004 9:45 AM

Tantalizing new info on my earlier theory of a GOP connection to the fake memos from NY Post columnist Frederic Dicker: The "hot rumor in New York political circles" cites Roger Stone, the legendary Republican activist, as the source.

This would be just the latest in a long and illustrious career as a Republican dirty-trickster, starting in the service of Richard Nixon at 19 years old. Roger Stone was responsible for shutting down the Miami-Dade County recount in the 2000 election. During the primaries, he was the svengali behind the Al Sharpton campaign, and according to the NY Times, was responsible for Sharpton's attacks on Howard Dean.

Roger Stone: "I have nothing whatsoever to do with this. I'm a firm believer in political hardball, but I draw the line at forged documents."
