More Rival Staffers Join Ron Paul Campaign

Bachmann maintains Paul bribed former campaign chairman

Yet more staffers formerly working for a GOP rival of Ron Paul have endorsed the Texas Congressman’s campaign this week.

Concord Patch reports that five former New Hampshire staffers of former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson announced Friday that they are now endorsing Ron Paul for president.

“Like many political observers, we see clear and compelling differences between Congressman Ron Paul and the other candidates who will garner significant support in New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary,” the five former staffers said in a statement.

The five, including Johnson’s former state coordinator and former communications director, left in October citing “frustration with the national campaign.”

Johnson announced earlier this week that he was quitting the Republican race and would be running as a Libertarian.

Noting that Paul and Johnson share some “very similar ideas”, Johnson’s former communications director Matt Simon said “It’s something we’d talked about, and we discussed the timing, and certainly his announcement Wednesday made it easier to go ahead with this,”

“There are two like-minded candidates in this race,” Simon said. “At this point it comes down to ideas, and the vast differences between Ron Paul and the other candidates we’ve seen play out in the last couple weeks.”

The announcement comes on the back of that of former Michelle Bachmann campaign chairman in Iowa, Kent Sorenson, who “defected” To the Paul campaign on live TV yesterday.

Bachmann is charging that the Paul campaign bribed Sorenson, a claim that both Sorenson and the Paul campaign have strenuously denied.

“I was never offered money from the Ron Paul campaign or anyone associated with them and certainly would never accept any,” Sorenson said in a statement via the Paul campaign.

Calling the allegation “ridiculous”, the Paul campaign also cited a statement by Wes Enos, Bachmann’s Iowa political director, also denying the bribery charge.

“I can say unequivocally that Kent Sorenson’s decision was, in no way financially motivated,” Enos said in his statement. “While I personally disagree with Kent’s decision, and plan to stay with Michele Bachmann because I truly believe in her, I cannot, in good conscience watch a good man like Kent Sorenson be attacked as a ‘sell-out.’”

Enos has now “quit” the campaign, Bachmann herself revealed in an interview with CNN today. It remains to be seen whether he too will join the Ron Paul campaign.

Thought Bachman was just a well meaning fool with an overactive emotional side. Leaning towards her being a lil spoiled b*#ch that shamelessly lies and spreads false rumors when she doesn't get her way.
