GOP Consultant: Koch Brothers Bought Ryan’s Nomination With $100 Million Promise

Veteran Republican political consultant, unrepentant dirty trickster, and recently reborn libertarian Roger Stone yesterday published a startling accusation against Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney on his personal website, The Stone Zone. According to Stone, the billionaire Koch brothers purchased the Republican vice presidential nomination for Ryan from Romney in late July by promising to fork over an additional $100 million toward “independent expenditure” campaigning for the GOP ticket.

Any such transaction would represent a serious violation of federal election laws and perhaps other statutes, aside from the ethical and character implications for all concerned. Although Stone is not the most reputable figure, to put it mildly, he has been a Republican insider, with access to the party’s top figures, over four decades. His credentials date back to Nixon’s Committee to Reelect The President and continue through the Reagan White House, the hard-fought Bush campaigns, and the Florida fiasco in 2000, when he masterminded the “Brooks Brothers riot” that shut down the Bush-Gore recount in Miami-Dade. Peruse his site and you’ll see his greatest hits and the attention he has drawn from major publications.

I’ve known Roger personally for years and always considered him intelligent and amusing; also extremely dangerous and even erratic. Sometimes I’ve been surprised by how much he knows about the inner-most workings of his party – even when he is clearly persona non grata among the current power elite.

The problem with your post is that he is pro-life, except for in the case of rape, incest, or the life of the mother. Soooo your comment has no substance and is misleading.

Uninformed, you are misinformed. He is pro life now. A week ago he was pro choice. He only changed his mind recently. He didn't do it for heartfelt reasons she did it for political ones. If he can't be honest with himself about his beliefs then what makes you think he will be honest with us? Now check your facts before commenting. He has not always been pro life.

Romney is a joke. He Wants to take away planned parenthood. Women need that for their reproductive health ie... Pap's mammograms, cervical exams. He's saying it's not necessary. Please.. It's not necessary for him to walk among us but he does. He's a fool.

This is amazing how people are buying into the talking points of main stream media What makes me laugh even more is that you fail to mention birth control, which is the main service that Planned Parenthood offers. From this woman's standpoint, paps, cervical exams, and mammograms can be obtained other ways. I have never seen a mammogram screening truck parked in front of a Planned Parenthood, but oh...WE don't have a Planned Parenthood and I believe that women in our community are getting their reproductive needs met. This talking point was magnified when Ms Fluch stated that without ObamaCare her birth control would be too expensive to afford(2.00-15.00 sliding scale) per month. Ms Fluch went to an Ivy League College to become an attorney. Do you really think she has problem affording birth control? Simply amazing that people will take the spin without using critical thinking skills...I suppose

Bingo. That's why abortion should be illegal because there is birth control out there to prevent pregnancy. I know that Obama is pro choice. Romney was too until awhile ago. I am pro life have been my whole life.
while i disagree with Obama on his pro choice stance that is the only thing I don't like about him. He's true to what he is and what he believes. Romney with his own mouth said he is now pro life, which means he was once pro choice or he would have left out the word now. He can't be honest with himself then he sure as hell can't be honest to this country. But you must be born into money just like Romney was and yes he has admitted this too. That's why you agree and feel that planned parenthood is unnecessary. But I bet your all for free clincs that offer men free viagra to get an erection.

I was not a fan of Mitt Romney from the get go,but after the election the other night I knew for sure something was wrong with him. He is the govoner of Mass. Obama won that state and the state of Paul Ryan. Now I'm sorry but when your own state does not support you something has got to be wrong with you as a government official. Coud the Bain thing have ruined him? It could be..
