|Sen. Rand Paul and his father, former Rep. Ron Paul.|
Kesari attorney Jesse Binnall and Paul attorney David Warrington are connected in another way, no one has noticed. Both clerked for the recently retired Virginia Circuit Judge Jonathan C. Thacher. (Warrington from 2006-2007, Binnall from 2009-2010.)
Also recently as April 2014, Warrington was also involved with Paul's 501(c)(4) Campaign for Liberty in their fight against IRS not to hand over their donor list. Paul and Warrington talk about that situation in this video which appears to be behind a paywall.
According to Robin Eublind, Dimitri Kesari is still on the Hamilton, VA town council. (I verified that tidbit in September.)
Why isn't political bag man and right to work pimp, Dimitri Kesari in federal prison yet? He's still on Hamilton, VA town council. @jilevinAnd because no Paul bribery scandal update is complete without a dash of Jesse Benton, here's his unappreciated tweet congratulating Senator Mitch McConnell, and all his "great friends" who are presumably Senate staffers, on McConnell's election as Senate Majority Leader. Seeing as he got one favorite and no retweets, I'm not so sure everyone agrees they're "great friends:"
