Mrs. Florida, Karyn Turk draws a huge crowd for Roger Stone in Delray Beach
By Rose Henriette
On Thursday September 26, a large crowd filled the Bull Bar in Delray Beach, spilling onto the street, outside the patrons puffed on cigars.
Inside was a fundraiser for America’s most notorious political operative, Roger Stone. Hosted by friends of Roger, including Karyn Turk, Mrs. Florida and her husband Evan.
The very next day, Karyn made headlines with her own layered legal battle, which seems to be unraveling.
Including a litigious battle with lawyers Ashley Crispin and O’connell who a Jury hit with a $16.4M judgement for doing a senior wrong in guardianship.
Guy Fronstin, Karyn’s attorney, mentions a wrongful death suit pending against the nursing home where Turk’s mother died.
Roger’s fundraiser Karyn Turk, has repeatedly been noted in the press for calling herself a “huge fan” of Stone.
The stories about her always seem to be peppered with reality show salaciousness, red bottom stiletto weapons, and rumors about the Real Housewives.
Turk has interviewed Stone, the self-described dirty trickster on her show for Eye on DC.
She was an organizer of a rally outside Stone’s home after he was indicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
As Stone emerged from the courthouse after his arraignment, she was there confronting protesters on the sidewalk, in the moment when Stone gave the Nixon-esque victory salute.
Described in a facebook post with the National Federation of Republican Women as “GOP Barbie” Karyn is an international news figure, known best for her unwavering support of President Trump.
Like her notorious mentor, Karyn Turk is in her own right infamous.
A visible spokesperson for high-profile conservatives including Cindy Yang, the former spa owner that led to the arrest of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
When stories about Yang surfaced, Karyn posted on Facebook, “Another case of media hype? … Another conservative being targeted.”
The crowd in the Bull Bar grew as Roger mingled, flashes popped, and cameras rolled.
All while Stone remained quiet in a contradiction to his bravado of the past.
Appearing to comply with the gag order issued by Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson.
Another newsworthy friend, John Cardillo of NewsMax took the stage.
Speaking to the crowd on his friend’s behalf, saying simply that he has pled not guilty to all charges, boisterously asserting the need for the crowd to support American values and free speech.
There seemed to be no lack of donations in the crowd with tickets fetching $75 a pop, a colorful painting auctioned for a large sum and merchandise flying off the table in the front of the bar.
His friends seem to have the right connections to draw a crowd, even in a predominantly democratic community.
Roger Stone’s trial in DC opens November 5th, with his legal defense is projected to cost as much as $3 million.
His fundraisers claim that this ordeal has left Roger and his wife Nydia Stone nearly indigent, having lost their home, savings, and Roger’s ability to make a living.
A federal judge charted out a partial course of what may be presented at the upcoming trial of former Trump adviser Roger Stone on Wednesday.
One of the most unusual arguments during the hearing seemed to be whether a clip from “The Godfather: Part II” could be shown to the jury.
Attorneys say the clip provides crucial context to jurors regarding Stone’s reference.
“How do you say Pentangeli?” Jackson asked, referring to Frank Pentangeli, a character from the film who is pressured to lie to a congressional committee to avoid incriminating Michael Corleone, the godfather.
Roger Stone referred to the character in a text message he sent to radio personality Randy Credico, a key witness in the Mueller investigation who had contacts with Stone and WikiLeaks.
Roger Stone told Credico to “do a ‘Frank Pentangeli'” and also threatened to take away his dog, according to the federal indictment.
During the hearing, defense attorneys revealed for the first time that former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon may be called as a witness in the trial.
Roger Stone faces seven charges arising from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, including five counts of making false statements, one count of obstruction, and one count of witness tampering.
