Jesse Benton Recognizes Ron Paul

On the heels of failing to meet his Roscoe obligations, the indicted Jesse Benton is out talking to the press and mentioning his grandfather-in-law, Ron Paul.

Something he never did before when more heavily involved in Rand Paul's presidential campaign.

Discussing the Audit-the-Fed bill, a bill which I think is at best a waste of time (SEE:Say No to 'Audit the Fed') , Jesse is quoted in the National Journal as saying:
“I think its a val­id­a­tion of one, the im­port­ance of the is­sue, and two, both of their lead­er­ship skills” said Jesse Benton, a former aide to both Pauls, who now serves as a con­sult­ant to the pro-Rand Paul Amer­ica’s Liberty PAC...

“It’s to pass mean­ing­ful le­gis­la­tion,” he said. “The Pauls are not grand­stand­ers. … This vote is a com­mon-sense first step to sort of prag­mat­ic fisc­al policy.”...

“I think it’s a great way for him to con­nect with his own sup­port­ers, and his dad’s sup­port­ers and a lot of people out there who are really con­cerned about the Fed­er­al Re­serve. … It’s a great way for Rand to cap­it­al­ize on years and year and years of hard work and of course it comes at an op­por­tune mo­ment.
”The Pauls"?  Up to now, I didn't even know Jesse knew you could use the Paul name in the plural.

It is not clear if this introduction of Ron into the picture is a new Rand effort to increase contributions to his campaign, or if, you know, it is a solo effort by Jesse to get help from his grandfather-in-law with, ahem, the Roscoe obligations.
