In the past Paul has attempted to distance himself from the support of 9/11 conspiracy theorists by saying he did not share their views. Captain’s Quarters and Hot Air have posted reports that the Paul campaign has paid out $1300 to Alex Jones, a leading “Truther” who has also contributed to Paul’s campaign. So Alex Jones donates $2300 to Ron Paul, then Ron Paul pays Alex Jones $1300 for services rendered. Seems a little strange....
The idea is to donate $100 on the fifth of november and raise Ron Paul’s campaign funding by the millions,

Ok so Alex jones has Ron Paul on multiple times on his show then takes a PAYMENT (not donation but payment for services rendered) for $1300 which is a lot of money (and do please tell me if you guys disagree). All I'm asking is what was he paid to do, and if he accepted payment from ron paul - who else did he get paid by for what?
All I'm saying is this payment makes his objectivity suspect.
Nothing nefarious here, folks. Indeed, Alex Jones donated to the Ron Paul campaign, as radio talk show hosts are allowed to donate to the political campaigns of their choice. As for the supposed “$1,300 payment” to Alex Jones, this was merely a refund. Jones made a mistake—he intended to donate $1,000, not $2,300, and the $1,300 was a refund. The transaction was noted by OpenSecrets, an organization covering presidential funding.
