In news that will surely send legions of Ron Paul supporters into the comment sections of political blogs at full indignant defensive pique, it would appear that what everybody pretty much knew to be true has turned out to be true…
Ron Paul, well known as a physician, congressman and libertarian , has also been a businessman who pursued a marketing strategy that included publishing provocative, racially charged newsletters to make money and spread his ideas, according to three people with direct knowledge of Paul's businesses…
But people close to Paul's operations said he was deeply involved in the company that produced the newsletters, Ron Paul & Associates, and closely monitored its operations, signing off on articles and speaking to staff members virtually every day.
"It was his newsletter, and it was under his name, so he always got to see the final product… He would proof it," said Renae Hathway, a former secretary in Paul's company and a supporter of the Texas congressman.
Don't worry, everyone. I'm sure that this is just part of a conspiracy by the Washington establishment to knock zero-primary-winning last place candidate Ron Paul out of the race because everyone is so afraid of what he has to say about the Fed or something.
