Roger Stone Begs Followers For Food And Rent Money

The Bulwark reports:

The latest Stone gambit: an email fundraising plea from Roger’s wife, Nydia, to support the Stone Family Support Fund, sent out Thursday afternoon with subject line “I am embarrassed to write this.”

“We are not asking for a donation—but an ADVANCE, repaid by our pledge to do our best to contribute a like amount to what you give to a charitable organization when this is all over… We should only need help in the seven months before my husband’s trial, when I know in my heart he will be exonerated and we can get back on our feet.”

This fund is separate, the reader should note, from Stone’s legal defense fund, which was launched months ago with a goal of raising $2 million to underwrite Roger’s legal woes. The Stone Family Support Fund, by contrast, is purportedly set up “to help pay for our rent, food, medical expenses, insurance, gasoline, and the most basic of living expenses.”
