Ron Paul Storms Off CNN Set

Ron Paul furrowed his eyebrows before storming off completely during a CNN interview addressing allegations that he made money and won fame with the help of a sometimes racist series of newsletters back in the 1990s.

Paul is the same candidate that many have said has been ignored by the media — some would say, though, he’s not — but since he’s been climbing in the polls and suddenly appears to be a real contender in the Republican primary race, the media’s turned up the heat.

CNN’s Gloria Borger was just starting to grill Paul about the details of his involvement in the racist newsletters, when the candidate stonewalled her. “Why don’t you go back and look at what I said yesterday on CNN and what I’ve said for 20-something years. 22 years ago?” Paul said right at the outset. “I didn’t write them, I disavow them, that’s it.”
