#RonPaul, libertarian nepotist

Do Members of Congress benefit from their service? You bet, when they pay themselves various fees, or put plenty of family on the payroll, like Ron Paul does.

Melanie Sloan of CREW, though, overdoes it with concern-trolling:
“If donors really understood where their money is going, I think they would be aghast.” 
If you mean ma-and-pa donors, well, yes, I'll agree there. But, if you mean big donors, nahhh ... they expect it.

And, at least with the cult-like followers of Paul, even ma-and-pa donors will rationalize this stuff.

Sidebar: Whether Republican or Democrat, note how many of the Congressmen in the story are from Texas.
