Is Ron Paul in Big, Big Legal Trouble?

Adam Weinstein  thinks that might be the case. He writes at Fortress America, with regard to the recent news disclosed by Open Secrets that Ron Paul 2012 campaign is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on lawyers:
 Back in August, an Iowa Republican state senator pled guilty to taking cash payments to abandon Michele Bachmann's 2012 presidential campaign and endorse Ron Paul. Also in August, Paul started spending oodles of cash on lawyers. There's ample evidence to suggest the two events are connected....

What on earth does Ron Paul need with all those attorneys? It's probably related to the upcoming allocution and sentencing of former Iowa Sen. Kent Sorenson, who in the leadup to the 2012 Iowa GOP caucuses had been running Bachmann's presidential campaign in the state. But six days before the voting, Sorenson jumped over to Paul's ship.
