Roger Stone’s political menage a trois

The ubiquitous Roger Stone has advised not one but two candidates in this year’s race for governor of New York.

The self-described dirty trickster has counseled both Republican candidate Carl Paladino and Anti-Prohibition Party candidate Kristin Davis.

Paladino, a Tea Party activist who has received national attention for his threat to deck a journalist, is the leader among a large field of candidates opposing frontrunner Andrew Cuomo. The focus on Paladino has lessened in the days since the gubernatorial debate, as Jimmy McMillan, the Rent is Too Damn High Party candidate, has become a minor media sensation.

Davis (not to be confused with the actress who played Charlotte in “Sex in the City”) is a former madam who claims to have supplied former Gov. Eliot Spitzer with call girls.

Davis served a three-month jail sentence on Rikers Island after pleading guilty to promoting prostitution. That’s three months more than Spitzer - a longtime foe of Stone - served.

Stone has denied that his involvement in Davis’s campaign is part of any vendetta against Spitzer.

Yet while Spitzer tries to regain his reputation as a CNN co-host, every news story about the Davis campaign renews public memory of the reasons he left office in 2008.

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell last week described Stone’s involvement with two opposing candidates as a “campaign menage a trois.”

Stone replied that Paladino and Davis were different brands of candidate. “One of these candidates is in the race to win. One is in the race to play,” he told O’Donnell. “It’s like two horses at Saratoga.”

Stone, meanwhile, is embroiled in his own set of allegations. The New York Post published a story earlier this week about his alleged assault on a former Senate employee he was dating.

On his blog, The Stone Zone, Stone writes that the article was based on “wild and false allegations of a non-credible source.”

    As if Roger Stone has any business commenting about another person’s credibility. I’m sure he’s a roid rager.
