"Former Ron Paul campaign aides Jesse Benton and John Tate were both sentenced to two years probation Tuesday afternoon in a federal courthouse in Des Moines. They are two of the three former campaign workers convicted in a plot to make hidden payments to an Iowa state senator to secure his endorsement for Paul during the 2012 Iowa Caucus. Benton was Paul's campaign chairman in 2012. Tate was the campaign manager. The two men will each pay a $10,000 fine and serve six months home confinement. Prosecutors had sought 27 months in federal prison." (09/20/16)
