The late John Robbins, who was Ron Paul’s chief of staff in the early eighties, named Lew Rockwell as the true author of the racist material in Ron Paul’s newsletters. Lew had also been Ron Paul’s chief of staff in the '70s and remains his closest adviser. In case you are unfamiliar with him, he has his own web site where he pushes nutty conspiracy theories on a daily basis. Paul has said publicly that it is the first thing he reads every day.
