Paul Accused of Ties to White Supremacy

Ron Paul is working to dispute accusations by the hacktivist group Anonymous that the Texas congressman is linked to white supremacists. Anonymous allegedly hacked into the email of the Las Vegas–based group American Third Party Position, which aims to "reach out to Americans of European ancestry and particularly to disenfranchised White workers, farmers and students who have become victims of the discriminatory affirmative action policies"—and claims to have discovered evidence of email exchanges between Paul and members of the group. James Kelso, also formerly involved in the John Birch Society, was one of a few members who—according to the alleged emails—met frequently with Paul. Paul's campaign has fervently denied Anonymous's accusations. "This stuff is completely false, and a waste of time," said spokesman Gary Howard.
