PolitickerNJ is reporting that veteran GOP strategist Roger Stone will be the guest speaker at an April 16 fundraiser for Essex County Republican Chairman Kevin O’Toole. Stone is a fascinating and colorful figure who has played a role in GOP politics for decades. But I believe he has gone over the line by creating an anti-Hillary Clinton committee named Citizens United Not Timid. Why choose a name with such a crude acronym? “Truth is, we sat around for hours trying to come up with words for BITCH and just couldn’t do it,” Stone told The Weekly Standard.
O’Toole has a reputation as a bright and articulate legislator, who earns respect on both sides of the aisle. He can earn some more by putting some distance between himself and Mr. Stone.
