The Wheels Grind Slowly, But Grind They Do

Top staff members from Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential campaign have been indicted in the culmination of a long investigation into Paul campaign’s alleged payments to an Iowa state senator to endorse the former Texas congressman for president and the hiding of those payments.

Jesse Benton, who ran Paul’s 2012 campaign and is married to the former congressman’s granddaughter, was indicted on Wednesday on five felony charges in federal court in Des Moines, Iowa along with John Tate and Dimitri Kesari, both of whom were also were top staffers on the 2012 campaign.
The article goes on to note that, while none of the alleged perps have direct ties to Rand Paul's current campaign, both Tate and Benton are involved with a superPAC that is funding Rand Paul's run.

The politician that they allegedly paid off pled out last year and it's a pretty safe bet that part of the deal involves rolling over on everyone else involved. But buried in the article is the article is mention of the charge that's going to sink them: Lying to the Feebies. That's what sent Martha Stewart off to prison.

Which is why, barring a limited set of circumstances, it is a very bad idea to talk to the FBI. Or, for that matter, any other Federal agent.

The link on talking to the Feds is a distressing, annoying, and disgusting insight into the sewage pit that America, and Washington in particular, has become.
