Robert Wenzel notes:
We make not get liberty because of the Ron Paul campaign run, but it sure looks like Ron Paul campaign manager, Jesse Benton, got the big bucks.
Benton’s total income from the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign and PACs, in the 2012 election cycle, is at least $586,616, EPJ has learned.
According to Open Secrets, he has been paid $322, 577 in the 2012 election cycle, by Liberty PAC. His total income directly from the Ron Paul presidential campaign 2012 is, to date, $264,039.
Benton is married to Ron Paul’s granddaughter Valerie Pyeatt.
Many Ron Paul supporters have become unhappy with Benton because of his suspected contacts with the Romney campaign and his overall handling of the Ron Paul campaign. Supporters are so frustrated that they are calling for Benton to be fired,
According to Who Is Jesse Benton, Benton is now owner of various consulting firms, including,C.I.C Solutions based in Wahington D.C., where he is president of the firm.
He is also owner of Performance Institute, where he is Director of Policy and External Affairs.
I noticed someone cross posted this article over at the Daily Paul and it was down-voted into oblivion as well as moved to the off-topic forum.
Shame on you Daily Paulers for hiding important information from the eyes of the public. While I completely support Ron Paul’s candidacy, as does Wenzel, this information is extremely relevant and important. You are acting like a bunch of liberals; throwing bad news down the memory hole.
Stop hiding bad news and start acting on it.
