Ron Paul supporters plan Presidents Day ‘money bomb’

On the heels of U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s second consecutive victory in the Conservative Political Action Conference’s presidential straw poll, Paul supporters are planning a ‘money bomb’ fundraiser for Monday, which is Washington’s Birthday (also known as Presidents Day).

According to a Facebook page created for the event, the donations from the ‘money bomb’ — an online fundraiser scheduled for a specific time period, usually a day — are to go to Paul’s Liberty PAC, his leadership political action committee. According to the Facebook page, the show of support is intended to “Convince Ron Paul to Run” — presumably for President, though it doesn’t specify a particular office.

The listed organizers of the event are not officially connected to Paul or his PAC. A spokesperson for Paul did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Last week, Paul sent a letter to supporters saying his 2012 decision would depend partly on fundraising for his Liberty PAC, as the Texas Independent previously reported. Paul has two visits to Iowa planned for March, including a three-city tour March 7.

In other Paul-related news, Fox News has apologized for airing 2010 footage from CPAC (when the audience largely booed as Paul was announced as the winner of the straw poll) instead of 2011 footage (when the audience largely cheered) in its CPAC coverage this week. (Read a Texas Independent story on the topic.)

Mediate relayed a statement Wednesday afternoon from Fox News’ Senior Vice President of News Michael Clemente, who said, “We made a mistake with some of the video we aired, and plan on issuing a correction on America’s Newsroom tomorrow morning explaining exactly what happened.”

Fox News did not respond to a request for comment from the Texas Independent Wednesday.

Today, Fox News’ Bill Hemmer, who interviewed Paul in the original segment, delivered the promised correction on the air, as Mediate reported. Hemmer said:

“It was clearly a mistake. We used the wrong videotape. There are similarities in the shot between last year’s event and this year.

Ron Paul won both years. However, there were audible boos in 2010 while you heard a lot more cheering this year. It’s an honest mistake. We apologize for the error and we look forward to having Representative Paul back on our show very soon.”
