A pro-Ron Paul group called Revolution PAC will combat the charges of racism against the Texas Republican in an internet advertisement next week.

Gary Franchi, the head of the PAC, told The Daily that the web ad will “put an end to these racist claims.”

“I don’t think it is fazing anybody,” Franchi said. “This is a cyclical history that is visible, based on past elections, and it (will be seen) as just a media ploy to try to get something to stick on the guy.”

Paul has said that he only endorsed the investment portions of controversial newsletters circulated in the 1980s and 1990s which were published under his name and occasionally contained conspiratorial, racist and homophobic content. Paul says he didn’t write the newsletters, didn’t read them at the time, and disavows them now. Still, the Paul campaign seems to have been taken by surprise that the issue has resurfaced in this election cycle, as the newsletters were also an issue for the candidate during his 2008 campaign.

Over at Conservatives Network a piece is up stating that, contrary to Ron Paul’s shimmying on the issue, the site has clear proof the newsletters were written by Ron Paul himself. The site has photographic evidence and notes frequent first-person references by the writer to a potential presidential run and so on. Is this revelation to Ron Paul what the Nixon secret tapes were to Richard Nixon’s presidency? A smoking gun that fatally wounds a candidacy as the revelation of the Nixon smoking gun tapes ended a presidency? Stay tuned.
