"In a further blow to the fundraising efforts of GOP presidential candidate Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the Justice Department on Wednesday indicted two leaders of his main 'super PAC' on charges stemming from the 2012 campaign of Paul's father, Ron Paul. Jesse R. Benton of Louisville, Ky., and John M. Tate of Virginia were charged with covering up campaign payments to an Iowa state senator to persuade him to abandon his support for then-Rep. Michele Bachmann's 2012 presidential campaign and instead endorse Ron Paul. Benton was also charged with lying about it to the FBI. They are the key people behind America's Liberty Pac, the largest of the outside PACs supporting the Rand Paul 2016 campaign." (08/05/15)
