Old news. Benton has been working for Mitch McConnell that last I heard.

Good grief. Folks, please

Good grief.

Folks, please check the date of the threads before commenting!

Did you have dealings with Jesse, Dimitri or Tate?

Go here if you want to record them for posterity:


I have a HUGE problem with C4L

I don't recall if I ever donated to C4L - I probably did, years ago. But even of that I am not certain.

What I am CERTAIN of is that I NEVER gave these clowns (yes, I said that - find out why) to CALL me on my cell phone. As you guys all know, they ask for information as a part of a donation. Certain information is actually required by law.

Well, I've been asking C4L for probably FIVE YEARS to lose my phone number and, absolutely, stop calling me. I've complained: both nicely and not so nicely. I've asked to speak to supervisors and had numerous people, probably at least half a dozen, promise to take me off the call lists.

I've even told them I will NEVER donate another penny until they stop calling me and demonstrate they have the basic competence to do that for, at least, a year.

With ignoramus "friends" like C4L it is no wonder we are having such a hard time gaining traction.

P.S. I am HOPING this message might reach someone of intelligence, competence, and authority at C4L. As an organization, this one is a real loser ... no matter how noble its cause.

To All The Comments Below: Jesse Benton Has All The Information.

You can use the word "steal", "took", "has" , "knows", "has seen".

Do you believe that this guy was not going to keep all that for himself?

Do you know how valuable that is?

I would have kept it myself on a back-up hard drive just as a souvenir - without any intentions of anything other than to have a part of history.

Asking for "proof" would be like asking me: "Did you keep any Super Brochures? Did you keep any bumper stickers?"

Yes, Of course I did.

I worked a lot since 2007 and I kept "keepsakes".


If this is true - and it could well be, I am certain Ron Paul would be FURIOUS.

I wish this guy had never been even born nor ever have gotten 1,000 light years away from our Ron Paul Presidential Campaigns.

You obviously don't know the

You obviously don't know the rules and regulations. I donated to Bush in 2000 and ever since then I've received emails and mails from Republican candidates. This is nothing new.

Now lets have legalizeliberty and libertychat provide the proof they guaranteed instead of them pointing out that Carol Paul called them liars.

They made the claim and then said they would provide proof. It hasn't happened.

At least he had access to all that information.

Come on legalizeliberty.

Come on legalizeliberty. Provide your proof.

So far the only proof you have provided is Carol Paul calling you a liar and libertychat claiming Nystrom agrees while he has obviously not in this topic.



Bring on the proof, liars.

John Tate says Jesse Benton wasn't fired. I'm not convinced.

Completely unfounded.

Completely unfounded. Completely untrue. The OP should be banned IMO.

LOL at the downvotes on my

LOL at the downvotes on my comment.

The fact is the topic starter and the blog he referenced made a claim and said they would provide proof of it.

To this day, they have not done so.

In fact the only proof they have provided is Carol Paul calling them a bunch of liars.

Is the truth treason on the Daily Paul?

Please elaborate.

Your post concerns me, as well as the post below stating Carol Paul has said the story is false.

They made the claim in the OP

They made the claim in the OP and said they would prove it. To this day, they still have not proven it. The only proof they have offered is that their claim is not true. They lied to get traffic to libertychat by starting an unfounded conspiracy theory without offering any proof.

Two updates to the original

Two updates to the original post available at http://libertychat.com/source-jesse-benton-was-fired-from-c4...

The only proof you have

The only proof you have provided is that the claim you made is untrue. You should be ashamed.

Update 9/17

LibertyChat.com reached out to Carol Paul for comment on our initial report. Carol responded tonight by saying the “entire story is false”.


Still waiting for someone to take me up on my bet.

I will escrow $1000 today. So far, no one has contacted me.

I will even bet the "source" because I don't believe it. And we can get some people to be the judges and figure out how to settle the bet.

Any takers?

I have read a lot about...

...Jesse Benton for months on the D.P. but never really read about the history of who he is...his past. Anyone have any knowledge on that besides being related by marriage to Paul? I can't seem to find anything. Just curious.

I read somewhere that he was already involved in politics

...in Washington D.C. when Ron Paul met him, and hired him into whatever his starting position was in the 2008 campaign. I've been curious about his background as well and can't find much on the internet either. Kind of weird.

Update: Just found a little more info. here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/93961174/Who-is-Jesse-Benton


Very interesting to say the least! Now I understand more of peoples attitudes about him. That was enough info to say that I myself wouldn't trust him!


Where's your proof? Where is it? Huh?

Political Junk Mail is Great For Starting Fires

I'm looking forward to any "new" campaign mail that is headed my way. The junk mail also helps keeps the post office lights on. Gotta look at the silver lining people.

This doesn't make sense. If

This doesn't make sense. If Jesse Benton was fired and stole the lists, then why did Ron Paul praise him?

Fired My A**

He got promoted to McConnell... call it what it is!!!

So far 3 people have claimed "trusted sources" regarding this

Ian Cioffi, Michael Nystrom and Gigi Bowman. Who is going to step up and confirm this?

I for one want to know the truth on this now. The sooner the better because if it's true this is going to be about straightening the record out once and for all for the world to see about one Jesse Benton.

Weren't Ian and GiGi involved with Paulfest? Not sure there word can be trusted at the moment. From what I heard Paulfest lied to the LP about the number of tickets sold in order to get sponsorship....not cool.

So where is the proof?

How many days, weeks, months, or years until you show the evidence? It's likely this was just a ploy to get that crappy libertychat site a few clicks.

Benton should be the one complaining of hearing a lot of voices.

...these past few days. Those many voices are persecuting him no doubt. Is he listening to them; that is the question? Will he learn from what he has done?

bigger question

is will he care?

When they say the "lists" they mean the mailing lists correct?
