Since folks in the comments to the last Congressman Paul thread have been asking where to find the material, I've pulled together a HUGE chunk of it below. Including links to pdfs of his newsletters (these were published together this past week at The New Republic (which highlighted the problematic sections/passages), as well as appeals written on his Congressional letterhead and signed (most likely, I would think, with an autopen) by him. I am also including Esquire's excellent (as in interesting and informative) articles and interviews on/with him from earlier in the year, as well as the Reason article from several years ago looking into who wrote the (bulk of the) newsletters (Reason's conclusion: former Paul staffer Lew Rockwell). I'm also including the links to the videos of Congressman Paul speaking to the John Birch Society and some interesting reporting I tripped over while pulling this together for you all about the attitudes of his constituents, as well as remarks about his attitudes made by a former senior staffer. Read it all, or some of it and make up your own minds. Or if you've already done so, just ignore it.
Here you go:
