Judge Tosses Four of Five Counts Against Ron Paul Operative Jesse Benton

A federal judge on Friday threw out four of five counts stemming from a campaign fraud case against Jesse Benton, reports Politico.

In August, Benton was indicted on charges of concealing payments to an Iowa state senator while working for Ron Paul, during the 2012 presidential race. But John Jarvis, the chief judge for the southern district of Iowa, dismissed most of the charges against Benton, leaving one remaining count, alleging that Benton lied to federal investigators.

But, they always get you on the coverup. We will soon find out if this holds in Jesse's case. The trial is scheduled to begin next week.
