"Three figures in the 'liberty movement' built by former representative Ron Paul of Texas will finally go on trial today, nearly four years after an alleged scheme to bribe an Iowa state senator into switching his presidential campaign endorsement. According to the federal indictment, which a grand jury handed down shortly before the first 2016 Republican presidential debate, three figures at the heights of Paul's campaign approached then-State Sen. Kent Sorenson about leaving the campaign of then-Rep. Michele Bachmann. Two of the defendants, Jesse Benton and John Tate, had to step away from the super PAC of Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) in the wake of the indictment. A third defendant, Dimitri Kesari, is simultaneously a suspect in a 2014 burglary at the home of a deceased Ron Paul campaign worker." (10/13/15)
