WOW Since Aug. 1, the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign Has Paid $237,997 to Lawyers

 Russ Choma at Open Secrerts reports:
The Ron Paul presidential campaign of 2012 is not over. In fact, the legal entity that controlled the campaign had $576,000 in the bank on Sept. 30 — a substantial sum for a White House bid that effectively ended two-and-a-half years ago.
Leftover campaign cash can be used for a variety of purposes, but since August, the Paul campaign has been deploying much of it to pay legal bills. In fact, since Aug. 1, the Ron Paul presidential campaign has paid $237,997 to lawyers. In the previous 19 months, the campaign spent just $190,000 on all expenses.
Why the sudden need for attorneys? Nobody from the Ron Paul organization — or the Ron Paul Institute — responded to requests for comment...
There may be the need for even more lawyer payments. I am hearing unconfirmed reports of even more ongoing investigations and  subpoenas going out, some of which are investigations that Ron Paul Inc. may not yet even be aware of.
