Paul Cuts Off CNN Questions About Racist Newsletter -- VIDEO

December 22, 2011

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, abruptly walked out of an interview with CNN on Wednesday when the presidential candidate was questioned about racist comments in newsletters he admitted writing in the 1990s.

Before stalking away from an interview with journalist Gloria Borger, Paul denied writing the newsletters, which included racist, anti-Israel, and anti-gay comments. A 1992 newsletter quoted him as saying 95 percent  of black men in Washington "are semi-criminal or entirely criminal."

 

According to a story in USA Today. Paul vouched for the accuracy of the writings and admitted writing at least some of the passages when first asked about them in a 1996 interview with The Dallas Morning News.
