Does Ron Paul Have More Baggage Than Samsonite?

Ryan Fagan, via Kos posts some unsavory comments from the 1992 Ron Paul Political Report. The story is fleshed out here.

Years later, in an interview printed in the October 2001 issue of Texas Monthly, Paul changed his story about these and other racist comments: “I could never say this in the campaign, but those words weren’t really written by me,” he said. “It wasn’t my language at all.” Unfortunately, this explanation doesn’t really withstand scrutiny. The Ron Paul Political Report was an eight-page newsletter, not a 200-page magazine; whether he employed other writers or not, it beggars belief that Paul would not have had full control and approval over its contents.

If Ron Paul were a “top tier” candidate with a chance of actually securing the nomination, this would be getting plenty of attention.
