By Roger Stone Peter Elkind's new book "Rough Justice," a chronicle of the fall and supposed resurrection of Eliot Spitzer, is a contorted piece of shit. Elkind joins the growing Upper East Side Liberal chorus that would have us forget Spitzer's violation of various state and federal laws, his repeated lies about the abuse of power involved in using the state police to spy on his political opponents and his lies regarding the source of the funding of his first two campaigns for Attorney General. Elkind puts forward the bizarre theory that Spitzer's downfall was engineered by Ken Langone, a member of the New York Stock Exchange Board, indicted by Spitzer. Supposedly, Langone retained a private investigator to get the goods on Spitzer. The problem with this theory is that Elkind offers no proof whatsoever. Elkind disparages my role in the Spitzer matter, ignoring the fact that I informed the FBI in writing on November 19, 2007 that Spitzer enjoyed cavorting with prostitutes while wearing his mid-calf length black socks. This was prior to public revelations that Spitzer frequently utilized prostitutes. The New York Post confirmed Spitzer's propensity for black socks, independently on April 24, 2008. Manhattan Madam Kristin Davis, who supplied prostitutes for Spitzer while he was both Attorney General and Governor, confirmed his penchant for dark hosiery in the boudoir on Sirius Radio on the very day I first met her. Thus, there are three independent confirmations of Spitzer's black sock habit, but more importantly, the confirmations prove that the information I sent the FBI was both accurate and confirmable. Yet Elkind takes at face value Spitzer's denial that he favored black hose in his call girl romps - despite Spitzer's record as a liar. Elkind further distorts by taking advantage of the death of legendary conservative columnist Robert D. Novak. I told Philadelphia radio talk show host Michael Smerconish that Spitzer would not finish his term prior to his fall Novak confirmed this in a conversation with Smerconish, and wrote it for his syndicated column. Although Smerconish confirmed the conversation with Elkind, the author takes advantage of the fact that Novak is no longer with us to confirm the accuracy of what he wrote. Elkind's tome also confirms that Spitzer's lying hasn't stopped. Client #9 vehemently denied reports last year in the New York Post that he was contemplating a political comeback. Now, Spitzer confirms to Elkind that he has been plotting a return to the political arena and holding meetings to explore the potential for a comeback at the exact time he was denying reports by New York Post reporter Maggie Haberman that he was doing so. In retrospect, former Spitzer Counsel Lloyd Constantine's book on Spitzer is a far more honest account of Spitzer's downfall. Constantine confirms the profile of Spitzer as a power-drunk megalomaniac right after his election as Governor, in which Spitzer thought he could rule by decree, intimidation, and threat. Elkind also attempts to discredit Manhattan Madam Kristin Davis, who unquestionably supplied prostitutes for Spitzer, largely because the canny Davis refused to supply proof to Elkind for his book. New York Daily News columnist George Rush has interviewed prostitutes that Davis arranged for Spitzer. Bail was set for Davis at an astounding $10 million in order to ensure her incarceration lest she talk to the press about Spitzer and his kinky habits. Davis has produced records that prove that prostitutes were paid for by a partnership in which Spitzer is registered with the state as a partner. If you want to know how Spitzer went down, don't bother wasting money on Rough Justice. It is largely a fictional account designed to ease the wealthy and bored Spitzer's return to the limelight. Elkind is no reporter; he is a Spitzerite with an agenda.
