Roger Stone preparing to move out of luxury Fort Lauderdale home — even if judge doesn’t lock him up

Even before finding out if a federal judge will revoke his bail and lock him up, Roger Stone has decided to move out of his $9,500-a-month home in a luxury neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale.

A “For Rent By Owner” sign has gone up outside Stone’s rental house in the Las Olas Isles, which is in the finger islands between downtown Fort Lauderdale and the beach.

The home was the site of the dramatic, pre-dawn raid at which Stone was arrested on Jan. 25. Stone said the 29 agents arrived at his house with 17 vehicles plus a helicopter and an amphibious craft in the canal behind his home.

He confirmed by email Wednesday afternoon that he and his wife, Nydia, are leaving the house. “We are moving to an apartment both to save money and for security reasons.”

Stone has long been a well-known figure, and self-proclaimed dirty trickster, in political circles for decades.

Stone worked to get Richard Nixon elected president, later worked in the Nixon administration, and has a giant tattoo of Nixon on his back.

On the day of his first court appearance last month on the day he was indicted, Stone conjured up Nixon at a news conference outside the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale. As he arrived and as he left, he spread his arms wide and spread his fingers on both hands to make a V, for victory, gesture — similar to the displays made famous by Nixon., 954-356-4550 or Twitter @browardpolitics
