No Bimbo Eruptions in Ron Paul’s Career

Written by Gary North on November 29, 2011

I served on Ron Paul’s staff in 1976. There were no “bimbo eruptions.”

Back in 1992, one of Bill Clinton’s female advisers referred to his “bimbo eruptions.” There was one accusation after another. But liberals are soft on adultery, so he did not suffer any consequences. He even got away with the Lewinsky affair. Impeached, yes, but not convicted.

Herman Cain will not escape from this latest accusation. The affair was too recent. His constituents are Tea Party people. For them, marital fidelity is something to be defended. I think his campaign is finished. He is tarred and feathered.

Newt Gingrich has a closet full of similar skeletons. Same problem.

The liberal media covered for FDR, JFK, and LBJ. They did not have to cover for Truman, Eisenhower (after World War II was over), Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, and the Bushes. They had fun with Clinton. That marked the end of the hypocrisy and the beginning of the public’s acceptance of immorality.

The liberals say: “A man’s private sexual conduct is not an issue for politics.” Baloney. It is of the essence of politics . . . and everything else. The old saying is true: “If a man will cheat on his wife, he will cheat on anyone.” If a man has no consideration for his wife, how far should anyone trust him? For anyone in the highest political office, squeaky clean is the should be the standard. It should be in the church, too.

This is a true saying, if a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous; One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God? Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil. Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil (I Timothy 3:1-7).

When I was on Ron Paul’s staff, there was never a hint of scandal. The female staffers were young, except for the lady who did constituent services, a middle-aged lady named Edith. She shared a small room with me and John Robbins. But the young women were there for ideological reasons.

His wife was still in Texas. He had not bought a house. He was elected in a special election in April 1976. He was defeated that November: 268 votes out of 180,000. He went back to Texas. He was re-elected in 1978.

He has never had to deal with scandals. The media would have found one by now. He has too many women patients who trust him. For an ob/gyn physician, this kind of scandal would be fatal.

Obama is also scandal-free. He seems to be a good family man. His conduct here is exemplary. There is no necessary connection between liberalism and adultery. The same was true of Truman and Carter.

We need a morally exemplary man in the White House. We also need a morally exemplary man who rejects the liberals’ version of the eighth commandment: “Thou shalt not steal, except by majority vote.”

    god bless ron paul

  2. Obama is NOT sex scandal free! He had/has? homosexual lovers!! Then their is the birth certificate!!!!!

  3. I agree…Cain is finished. Even if he managed to squeakpast supposed-infidelity scandal #1, ain't NO WAY it's gonna happen again. Like the old saying says, if it smells like a rat…it's probably a rat.

  4. Of course there were no bimbo eruptions regarding RP. RP is not a black threatening to divide the rock-solid support of a black President. I think what we have here is an instance of pre-emptive use of dirty tricks by the reigning emperor.

    Yes Ron Paul is squeekie clean. There isn't any skeletons in his closet. Ron Paul 2012

  6. charles1816 says:

    Good testimony, thanks.
    I am also impressed on the way Ron Paul does not do personal attacks on others. It is the ideas or policies he disagrees with. A good choice of President.

  7. What do you mean "Obama's scandal free?"
    Haven't you heard about his affair with Larry Sinclair? And what about his Conn. SSN?
    And don't you think it's scandalous for him to hide his past?
    I could go on and on but you get the idea!

  8. john paul jones says:

    No doubt in my mind—-Dr. Paul is the best moral candidate we have not to mention he is the smartest one on the economy.

  9. jim28threg. says:

    o because the MSM hasn't spit out any scandel on Obamanation that means he's as clean as fresh snow is that it? That's what you would want us to believe? You haven't lived in Chicago. Then what about all the leis about birth certs-schooling -place of birth-and on and on. AHHHHH to h with it. he's sh-t no more than garbage same as carter and that coward truman.

  10. jim28threg. says:

    Forgot Paul and Machel are the best of that group that's why the MSM ignore them. If you'd all open your eyes you just might be able to see that.

  11. In a batttle for the Republican nomination I have started to wonder if Ron Paul might just be the last man standing. If it were to happen that he became the Republican nominee he would run circles around Obama in any debate and, I believe, would win the election by a landslide once he got enough time in front of the American public to actually describe the basis and rationale for his positions, away from the media attack dogs who operate from soundbyte to soundbyte without any room for thoughtful intelligence.

  12. I appreciate what you said about Obama and Carter. It is ok people to say good things about others in the areas that they are a good example. Obama is a family man. Quit with the rumors about the rest. That does not mean you have to agree with his politics and that he does everything wrong. Gove me a break.

  13. Tolhurst1941 says:

    Ron Paul can win this election if we who believe in him make the effort to make sure that we can get all that people that believe in Ron Paul are properly registered to vote as Republican.
    There are probablyl millions of Independents and Democrats that like Ron Paul and would Vote for him. But in many states they will not be able to Vote for him if they don't change there registration to Republican.
    We have to realize that not only does he have to take on the media but the Republican leadershp, the Rino's etc. Ron Paul should have no trouble winning the general election but 1sr he has to win the primary which is the most importent thing right now.
    We really need to get busy now as the deadline is getting close so grab your card tables and folding chairs and hit the shopping centers etc. with a big stack of voter registrations and if you wish go doior to door. You also should make sure that your family and friends are regsetered as well.
    Go Ron Paul Go and God Bless You

    Back when Paul was in his prime, sex had not yet been discovered.

  15. I think that if Cain have told the truth from the beginning by admitting what he have done and with how many then even the Tea Party members would forgive him and admire him for his sincerity and honesty. But if those women were lying then he should have sued them for defamation and taken a lie detector to prove his innocence. The problem is he never really addressed the issue so it left his fans doubting him and not trusting him.

  16. I have a real problem with even considering RP for prez. To me help looks like a lowend used car salesman and his eerie facial expressions drive me crazy. Could any foreign leader keep from laughing while meeting with him. He is totally lacking in charisma and being well intentioned is of no use to me. What has he ever accomplished in his time in office. I'm from texas and only recently heard about him. He is s fringe candidate and with his rambling, stuttering style be not match one-on-one with Newt. He just is a waste of money and time. His efforts should be directed toward electing new Senators next Nov and help regain the Senate, Although Republicans are tricked into holding their circular firing squad "debates" I feel they are a shoo in for president, not matter who, but we should go with strength and experience, Newt.

  17. Richard Carrillo says:

    Make no mistake about it, This is not an election were facing, It's a WAR ! we are fighting against the same enemy our Forefathers fought in the War of Independence, World War 1 and World War 2, And that is is the fight against tyranny, communism, facism, socialism, Marxism and the threat to our Sovereignty,Constitution and Liberty. Our very existence is at stake, but this time it's a DOMESTIC threat !!!!!! It's sad but our voting system is no longer a viable mechanism for protecing our Constitional Liberties as there are too many unqualified IDIOTS voting to protect their handouts !!!!!!!!. Everyone I talk to ( except the welfare recipients and people who do not possess HONOR ) would vote for RON PAUL in a heartbeat !

  18. Thanks for some other informative web site. The place else may just I get that type of information written in such an ideal manner? I’ve a challenge that I’m just now running on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such information.

  19. IdontBrakeForDems says:

    The writer should have said obummer has not been coveting (or whatever) any females other than his wife and leave it at that. He has certainly lead a homosexual lifestyle before. As written above in comments, he has lied his a$$ off about the birth certificate, his SS # and countless bald lies directly to the cameras as he gives his well-known stock market killing speeches to the American people. The man has no shame or common sense, but that's just the liberal marxist coming out in him. I believe Ron Paul will peak at the right moment and get the nomination regardless of what the media is saying about him. The more the media ignores and marginalizes Mr Paul, the more interest people develop about him. As far as the debate goes I think a cardboard cutout of ANYONE other then obama will defeat obama in the general election, so I don't care much about 'winners & losers' in the debate. If obama wins the general, America loses everything. I hope the moderates and fiscally responsible dems might see that this man will bring our country to it's knees if he is allowed 4 more years to do it. Nobody wants a soup line, but even worse will be a line with no soup at the end.

  20. Desi Erasmus says:

    No bimbo eruptions, but there is a recurring “newsletter eruption” which will torpedo the campaign unless it is addressed effectively – – a response that deals with both horns of this contingent indictment:

    Either Ron Paul = “David Duke” (with suitable quotations from the newsletter to accompany the charge) or Ron Paul was seriously derelict in handling the management responsibilities of his office when the newsletter went out over his name (assuming the RP account of the circumstances is accurate, albeit not complete).

    As someone who inhabited his office for a time, perhaps you can illuminate those circumstances more thoroughly, and help Ron Paul come up with a better response than has so far emerged.

  21. 0 is also a serial liar. You can look up "Obama's list of lies'. Rather long list it is.


  22. Jackie, IMO what is worse for Cain is that he said "…90% of the 'Patriot' Act is right on!" This is the PA that Bachmann voted to extend.


  23. Jackie, IMO what is worse for Cain is that he said "…90% of the 'Patriot' Act is right on!" This is the PA that Bachmann voted to extend.


  24. @ jim28–Michele voted to extend the 'Patriot' Act. She also took govt $ while talking against the practice. She is a BIG time war monger. We can't afford any wars, not even the ones we are in.


  25. Thanks for every other informative web site. The place else may I am getting that type of info written in such a perfect manner? I have a mission that I’m simply now working on, and I’ve been at the look out for such information.

  26. I have fun with, lead to I found exactly what I used to be looking for. You’ve ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a nice day. Bye

  27. IS there a page for the Democrats opinions anywhere? I seem to always end up hearing about how terrible this president is and I wonder if anyone would think differently about this person? All I hear on TV is that Obama has this election won, he has done good for our country and is leading in the election for 2012. He is a Communist, Marxist and should have the name "the biggest liar on God's earth". If those who intend to vote for this man, please let us now WHY on earth you would vote for him?He has done nothing but HARM to our country and is taking over our entire lives, which has been his intention all along and we will have NO FREEDOMS because he wants the Constitution destroyed also the American People. You have no doubt heard him say he hates America. That is why he bought the office of President of the United States, in order to destroy all that are here. Waiting for an Obamabat for some answers, GOD bless America and hope she will return to the leader of the world! Investigate all reports you hear and decide who is liying and who is telling the TRUTH!
