Longtime political adviser to President Trump, Roger Stone has received permission to judge a national exotic dancer competition at a Memphis adult entertainment club in June, reports Mother Jones.
Stone is currently under travel restrictions, and is scheduled for trial in November on charges of obstruction of justice and perjury. He is a proud libertine and is slotted to appear at the strip club the Pony on June 5-7.
On Facebook, the club revealed that Stone and Kristen Davis, known for managing a high-end 2000s New York prostitution ring, will judge the exotic dancers together. Stone was previously Davis’ employer and apartment-mate, and the two are close friends.
Stone’s visit to the club does not reflect any political agenda, but he has publicly complained about the loss of income and various legal expenses due to his prosecution. Club appearances, therefore, are a source of income.
Club owner Jerry Westlund jokes that Stone will receive an ““educational stipend,” and that he hopes the visit will create positive publicity for the club dancers.
“In spite of their prowess, our dancers don’t necessarily get the media attention that they deserve.”
