Roger Stone says he sicced feds on Eliot Spitzer and takes special glee in the downfall of his rival.

When Roger Stone predicted last year that Gov. Eliot Spitzer would soon be toast, it sounded like the rantings of a partisan attack dog.

Turns out, the Republican operative is a dragon-slayer who helped bring down New York State's most powerful man.

"Everything surrounding Eliot Spitzer is bizarre. It gets more bizarre now when Roger Stone is [involved]," said Democratic strategist Hank Sheinkopf. "It's like this is all from a movie."

Stone, who boasts of being the sleaziest man in American politics, declared on Dec. 6 to conservative radio host Michael Smerconish that the then-powerful Gov. Spitzer "wouldn't serve his full term."

The comments didn't draw much attention at the time since Stone was a well-known enemy of Spitzer who worked for the governor's nemesis, Majority Leader Joe Bruno.

Nobody knew that Stone had already tipped off the feds to Spitzer's high-priced hooker habit in a Nov. 19 letter to the FBI.

It also cattily mentioned the governor's fetish for having sex with socks on.

It's unclear whether the prosecutors knew anything about Spitzer's involvement in the Emperors Club VIP call girl ring when Stone wrote the letter.

Last month, Spitzer was caught on wiretaps arranging to meet hooker Ashley Alexandra (Kristen) Dupré at a Washington hotel. He resigned in disgrace on March 12.
Spitzer allies blasted Stone's involvement as evidence that the investigation was tainted from the start.

"This whole story does not pass the smell test," Harvard Law Prof. Alan Dershowitz told the Daily News. "What others have done to Eliot Spitzer is far more serious than any crime Spitzer committed."

Spitzer's lawyer, Michele Hirshman, refused to comment on Stone's involvement.

A source close to the case questioned Stone's account that he found out about Spitzer's involvement through a friend in the Miami sex business.

Spitzer's sworn enemies in politics or on Wall Street, where he is widely reviled for leading a crusade against corporate corruption, would have had ample motive to dig for dirt on him, the source said.

"[Stone] has no shortage of history involved in bizarre political situations," said a Democratic consultant.

A GOP consultant who has locked horns with the mercurial Stone warned the whole thing could be one of his famed PR stunts.

"How could you believe anything this guy says or does?" the rival said. "I think the guy's got a screw loose."

Let ye without sin cast first...

Here's a look at Roger Stone's greatest political hits and misses as a GOP operative:

# Ratted out former Gov. Eliot Spitzer's hooker habit and kinky sock fetish to feds.

# Bounced as consultant to Senate GOP Leader Joe Bruno after he was accused of making a threatening call to Spitzer's elderly dad.

# Set up offensively titled group to attack Sen. Hillary Clinton.

# Pulled strings at rent-a-crowd GOP demonstrations that shut down 2000 Florida recount.

# Tossed from Bob Dole's 1994 campaign amid claims he and his wife tried to recruit swingers for sex.

# First political gig was with former President Richard Nixon's notorious Committee to Re-elect the President (CREEP).

SPITZER TIPSTER A GOP 'SWINGER'
By GINGER ADAMS OTIS

March 23, 2008 --
Four months before a hooker scandal brought down Eliot Spitzer, controversial Republican operative Roger Stone tipped the FBI to the governor's penchant for prostitutes.

The information Stone provided was very detailed - right down to the calf-length black socks Spitzer allegedly wore while bedding his paid paramours.

In a letter sent to the FBI on Nov. 19, Stone alleged that Spitzer "used the service of high-priced call girls" while in Florida.

Stone, a former henchman for President Richard Nixon who divides his time between his Central Park West apartment and Miami Beach, said in the letter that he had gathered the information on Spitzer from "a social contact in an adult-themed club."

Spitzer resigned last Monday, a week after his liaisons with $1,000-an-hour hooker Ashley Dupre were revealed.

Yesterday, Stone refused to comment on the letter, but told The Post: "What kind of guy does it with his socks on?"

The letter, written by Stone's lawyer, Paul Rolf Jensen, alleged that Spitzer "paid literally tens of thousands of dollars for these services," and that the Democratic former governor "paid not with credit cards or cash but through some pre-arranged transfer."

The missive's contents were confirmed to The Post by a source close to Stone. Federal authorities declined to comment on the letter, as did a Spitzer spokeswoman.

Stone's lawyer wrote to the FBI after investigators asked to speak with Stone, although they didn't specify for what purpose. He refused to talk to them, but sent the letter about Spitzer.

"It is also my client's understanding from the same source that Governor Spitzer did not remove his mid-calf-length black socks during the sex act. Perhaps you can use this detail to corroborate Mr. Stone's information," according to the letter, which was first reported by the Miami Herald.

Stone is no stranger to sex scandals.

The veteran political consultant was dumped as an operative in Bob Dole's 1996 GOP presidential campaign after Stone and his wife placed a personal ad in a swingers magazine looking for a threesome.

Stone claimed he was the victim of dirty politics, but pictures soon surfaced of him bare-chested and his wife reclining on a bed in a black negligee and thigh-high boots.

Last summer, Stone was accused of leaving a hate-filled message on the home phone of Spitzer's dad, Bernard.

The message said the 83-year-old real estate developer would be "compelled by the Senate sergeant-at-arms" to testify about "shady campaign loans" made to his son in 1994. Stone denied any involvement, and Manhattan authorities didn't press charges because the call didn't violate any laws.

This guy is rich. I love his reasoning: "What kind of guy leaves his socks on....while paying thousands of dollars on hookers behind his wife's back?" Like leaving his black socks on is what's wrong in this situation! Not breaking the law by going to hookers and not cheating on his wife...it's the black socks that's wrong.

Spitzer went after corruption like Pat from Moonachie went after only the finest of foods. Spitzer was a shakedown AG who went after high priced firms he could shake money out of for either himself or the state.

Now that it's been shown a political enemy leaked the info the kool-aid drinkers will probably demand that everything be forgotten.

Or some kind of alien pretending to be human. Either way he's the first person that should be launched out of an airlock.
