It appears Jesse Benton has a reputation with some of the Ron Paul folks. Well, maybe we do have something in common with the Libertarians. Ditch Mitch McConnell in 2014!
Economic Policy Journal
We may not get liberty because of the Ron Paul campaign run, but it sure looks like Ron Paul campaign manager, Jesse Benton, got the big bucks.
Benton's total income from the Ron Paul Presidential Campaign and PACs, in the 2012 election cycle, is at least $586,616, EPJ has learned.
According to Open Secrets, he has been paid $322, 577 in the 2012 election cycle, by Liberty PAC. His total income directly from the Ron Paul presidential campaign 2012 is, to date, $264,039.
Benton is married to Ron Paul's granddaughter Valerie Pyeatt.
Many Ron Paul supporters have become unhappy with Benton because of his suspected contacts with the Romney campaign and his overall handling of the Ron Paul campaign. Supporters are so frustrated that they are calling for Benton to be fired.

Jesse Benton and his bullet proof vest?
Economic Policy Journal
How concerned is Jesse that he has done wrong and that the grassroots RP people are not happy with him? It appears he wore a bullet proof to a meeting with the Maine Ron Paul displaced delegates.
An EPJ reader emails:
Jesse Benton is wearing bulletproof vest to talk to the Maine delegation? That is what one of the commenters suggests, but I thought he was just fat, until he turned around. He is wearing body armor.
Tom Woods writes: "My Memories of Jesse Benton"
Ron Paul campaign chairman Jesse Benton is going to head up the campaign of Mitch McConnell. Gee, now why did those incorrigible naysayers have so many unkind words for him?
People who said Benton was positioning himself all along for bigger things in the GOP were scoffed at. Why, Jesse has a secret plan to get Ron Paul the nomination at the last minute!
Well, now we know the real secret plan.
Ask yourself this: how much money would you have to be paid to work for an enemy of the things you’re supposed to stand for? Maybe now people will understand why Jesse would fly into a tirade after some of Ron’s most heroic moments, when the rest of us were cheering.
Alex Thomas writes this:" Insider Sabotage: Did Jesse Benton Sabotage the Ron Paul Festival and 2012 Campaign as a Whole?"
For years many patriots and Ron Paul supporters have claimed that married in Ron Paul family member and campaign manager Jesse Benton was an establishment insider who was sabotaging the liberty message from within.
The Daily Caller: Slamming the door: Ron Paul ‘will not endorse Gary Johnson’
Jesse Benton, the national campaign chairman for Ron Paul’s 2012 presidential bid, flatly told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that Paul “will not endorse Gary Johnson,” the Libertarian Party’s presidential candidate.
The decision is not entirely unexpected, as Paul’s son, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, spoke at the Republican National Convention last week and has endorsed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Comment made on the Washington Post article "Mitch McConnell hires Ron Paul aide"
The comment: "Jesse Benton, you were the fox in the hen house. You hi-jacked Dr. Paul's campaign. You have successfully reaffirmed that you were the traitor in our midst. You successfully stole the campaigns funding for personal gain. I could not be more elated that the liberty movement has rid itself of you, indeed a parasitical leech. Jesse you have zero 'political' value. You existed solely as a hindrance to the cause of liberty and possess no expertise on attaining political capital.
You and McConnell are meant for each other in the neoconservative bedroom. It would be pleasing to see the wrath of the politically awake liberty revolution rise up against you Mitch vindictively, but it's not even worth the time because you are the past, the corrupt establishment, and your professional and political future will inevitably fail of your own accord.
For those who have no idea what this post is about, this is yet another anecdote of why the modern discourse of politics is a game for the evil and corrupt, and many enlightened individuals are calling for a complete withdraw of participation."
Welcome to Kentucky Jesse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
