RON PAUL IS STILL TAKING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM WHITE SUPREMACISTS

E-mail Print PDF

Virginia AbernethyRemember in 2008 when Ron Paul was catching hell for accepting a $500 donation from Stormfront owner Don Black? Well since that time Virginia Abernethy, board member and currently vice-presidential candidate of the White Supremacist political party American Third Position (A3P) has donated over $4000 to Rep. Paul, $2275 for his currently presidential campaign alone. To all his supporters trying to defend him against the racism charge, it just got harder.

Despite the controversy that had arisen in in Presidential run in 2008 from accepting a campaign donations from white supremacists, Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) is again receiving donations from those circles, most notably from a longtime supporter who serves on the board and is also the vice-presidential nominee of a political party whose mission statement states they “will provide the leadership and representation demanded by the majority white American population.”

Virginia Abernethy a retired college professor who is closely associated with the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, contributed a total $2275 last year to Ron Paul’s Presidential campaign, according to Federal Election Commission records. Beginning in May, her last contribution was in September.

In June, Abernethy joined the board of American Third Position (A3P), which was founded in May 2009 as the “Golden State Party” by a California neo-Nazi group called Freedom 14, who changed their name and reorganized after their former chairman Tyler Cole was revealed to have been a convicted felon. Political Cesspool host James Edwards, who is also a supporter of Rep. Paul and was once supposed to have him on as a guest on his show in 2006, is also a board member. On Jan. 12, A3P announced that Merlin Miller is their nominee for President with Abernethy as his running mate. “Each nation has the right to maintain the identity upon which it was founded,” A3P said in a press release. Our slate of candidates is morally, ethically and intellectually above those offered by the Democrats or Republicans.”

Abernethy has donated to Rep. Paul and his son Rand in the past. She contributed a total of $2500 to Rep. Paul’s presidential campaign in 2008 as well as $500 to Rand’s successful run for Senator of Kentucky in 2010, as did A3P Chairman William Johnson in 2009. She has also donated to Pat Buchanan’s 2000 presidential campaign as well as to a 1999 congressional run for Christina Jeffrey, who in 1995 was fired as the House of Representatives historian by then-Speaker Newt Gingrich when she that complained Nazi views weren't represented in a Holocaust course.

During the holiday season, the New York Times wrote an article about Rep. Paul that addressed controversial newsletters that was racially charged and the support from white supremacists that he had enjoyed in the past, noting the $500 donation to his 2008 run that he received from Stormfront owner Don Black. In it, it was noted that Paul did not explicitly disavow their support, saying, “If they want to endorse me, they’re endorsing what I do or say — it has nothing to do with endorsing what they say.”
