When this issue came up again my first reaction was to think, like the little kid in the legend of Shoeless Joe Jackson of Black Sox infamy, "Say it ain’t so, Ron. Say it ain’t so."
But as Frank James writes and his comment section elaborates on quite eloquently:
As Paul’s campaign explained, it plans to keep the money because that will reduce the cash Black has to spend on spreading his controversial ideology by $500.
And, according to the campaign, another good will occur. Paul will have $500 more with which to spread his libertarian message of freedom from big government, including his opposition to the Iraq War.
My first, emotional reaction was that taking money from Stormfront was something to avoid on principle. Goes to show what emotional reactions are good for.
