The kitchen, it burns! Paul scurries away from CNN interview. (Reuters)
The GOP presidential candidate -- and current leader in the Iowa polls -- walked out on CNN reporter Gloria Borger Wednesday after she pressed him about racist newsletters sent under Paul’s name in the early 1990s.Well, maybe Doctor Dementia should ask his wife and daughter if they can remember seeing any of "that money":
Paul insisted that he never wrote them, read them only after they were sent out and disavows them.
When asked about the money he supposedly made off them, Paul said “I’d like to see that money.”
Financial records from 1985 and 2001 show that Rockwell, Paul's congressional chief of staff from 1978 to 1982, was a vice president of Ron Paul & Associates, the corporation that published the Ron Paul Political Report and the Ron Paul Survival Report. The company was dissolved in 2001.
The publishing operation was lucrative. A tax document from June 1993—wrapping up the year in which the Political Report had published the "welfare checks" comment on the L.A. riots—reported an annual income of $940,000 for Ron Paul & Associates, listing four employees in Texas (Paul's family and Rockwell) and seven more employees around the country. If Paul didn't know who was writing his newsletters, he knew they were a crucial source of income and a successful tool for building his fundraising base for a political comeback.
Besides Ron Paul and Lew Rockwell, the officers of Ron Paul & Associates included Paul's wife Carol, Paul's daughter Lori Pyeatt, Paul staffer Penny Langford-Freeman, and longtime campaign manager Mark Elam (who has managed every Paul congressional campaign since 1996 and is currently the Texas coordinator for the presidential run) [see 2008 article link below]

The following is an excerpt from one of the articles in Paul's newsletters. One of the articles Ron Paul claims he never wrote and he doesn't know who did. Via
Think Progress (Bold emphasis in below quote is mine.):
Instructions on Murdering Black Youth: A 1992 newsletter provided fairly detailed instructions on the best way to shoot and kill an African-American and get away with it. “If you live in a major city, you’ve probably already heard about the newest threat to your life and limb, and your family: carjacking. It is the hip-hop thing to do among the urban youth who play unsuspecting whites like pianos. . . . An ex-cop I know advises that if you have to use a gun on a youth, you should leave the scene immediately, disposing of the wiped off gun as soon as possible. Such a gun cannot, of course, be registered to you, but one bought privately (through the classifieds, for example). I frankly don’t know what to make of such advice, but even in my little town of Lake Jackson, Texas, I’ve urged everyone in my family to know how to use a gun in self defense. For the animals are coming.”
Guess who lives in a little town in Texas named Lake Jackson.
