    Former Iowa Republican official admits to taking payment for support of Ron Paul

    "A former Iowa state senator who abandoned then-presidential candidate Michele Bachmann to endorse Ron Paul a week before the 2012 Iowa caucuses has pleaded guilty to “concealing payments” from Paul’s campaign in exchange for his support, the Department of Justice announced Wednesday."

    Looks like Paul gave a bribe.

    Deary me.

    But Paul just doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who would do something like this...

    we'll have to see what happens with the Campaign staff and Paul himself, someones gonna get it though.

    Well, this is just awful.
    If only the media wouldn't have ignored RP, he could have raised more money and surged/bribed his way to victory.
    Didn't RP manage to take--so to speak--the Virgin Islands in 2012?
    Given this info, maybe the Virgin Islands aren't.
    At least RP used gold bullion for his bribes.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    The true believers won't be swayed by this.
    Any evidence will be dismissed as a conspiracy--promulgated by the media-- to suppress Paul's lofty message.
