According to court documents filed Thursday, a grand jury in Des Moines indicted Jesse Benton, John Tate and Dimitri Kesari on conspiracy charges, reports AP. They’re accused of covering up payments to former Iowa Sen. Kent Sorenson, who endorsed Paul in December 2011.
Benton, Tate and Kesari also are charged with causing false campaign contribution reports to be filed and participating in a false statement scheme.
Benton and Tate are charged with causing the campaign to file false records. Kesari was convicted of that charge last month but a jury was deadlocked on the other charges and prosecutors refiled them.
Similar charges, earlier dismissed against Benton and Tate are renewed in the new indictment.
Benton is married to Ron Paul's granddaughter.
