The New Yorker: Ron Paul's Filthy Lucre
“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,” Markon and Crites reported. They went on to write:
“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….
A "shrewd business man" who sends out racist newsletters under his name as a "good business" practice? Give me a damn break. It's good business pandering to racists? What the hell kind of person would pander to racists if he didn't believe that crap himself? Can you even imagine sending crap like that out under your name? I certainly hope not! I know I'd rather be penniless than send out the racist crap he sent out.
The FACT is that the newsletters were proofed by him and, according to staff, he knowingly made the decision to send out the newsletters containing the horrible racist content they have. Own them putz, they're totally yours! Either you're a racist sack of shit or you're a lying sack of shit or, most likely, you're a lying racist sack of shit!
