I thought Schaden-Friday might slip away without a good dose of bad news for a bad, bad person.
Ah, but it came through in the end to bite one of the most loathsome arses on God’s verdant vale of tears.
Roger Stone may want to grab his blankie, because there are no blanket pardons coming for this.
The Justice Department on Friday sued Roger Stone, a longtime ally of former President Donald Trump, accusing Stone and his wife of owing nearly $2 million in unpaid income taxes.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, says the couple underpaid their income taxes by $1,590,361 from 2007 to 2011. It further says Stone did not pay his full tax bill in 2018, coming up $407,036 short.

Name of the company Stone allegedly used? "Drake Ventures"

So hard to believe that Roger Stone, well-known Trump whisperer and anthropomorphic IBS symptom, would run afoul of the law. Again.
And now that Trump is out of office, the DOJ is unlikely to tap the brakes on this latest investigation.
Maybe if his bank account is denuded a bit he’ll stop dressing like a Batman villain. Or not.
Either way, this is bound to be pretty entertaining.
Cheers, and have a great weekend!
