Rand Paul’s new spokesperson/campaign manager/nephew, Jesse Benton, is quite skilled at apologizing for racists.
Flashback to 2007:
“Dr. Paul stands for freedom, peace, prosperity and inalienable rights. If someone with small ideologies happens to contribute money to Ron, thinking he can influence Ron in any way, he’s wasted his money,” Paul spokesman Jesse Benton said. “Ron is going to take the money and try to spread the message of freedom.”
“And that’s $500 less that this guy has to do whatever it is that he does,” Benton added.
Yeah, this is gonna be tons of fun.
UPDATE: Looks like Jesse has some pretty serious ties to white supremacists in Kentucky. The race issue just keeps heating up for Rand Paul.
