Kentucky GOPer convicted of vote buying

Another major scandal involving the Republican Party of Kentucky has hit poodirt.

Jesse Benton was the campaign manager for Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, and he also chaired Ron Paul's ill-fated 2012 presidential bid. Now he's been convicted of 4 serious federal charges involving his role in the Ron Paul campaign.

Benton - along with 2 others - has been convicted of bribing former Iowa State Sen. Kent Sorenson, who had already been convicted of receiving payments to switch his support in the 2012 Republican primary.

Currently, Benton is a senior adviser for a Donald Trump superPAC.
