DES MOINES, Iowa — A federal jury has acquitted one former Ron Paul presidential staffer but convicted another.
According to the Des Moines Register jurors acquitted former Paul campaign chair Jesse Benton of a single count of lying to FBI agents.
Former deputy campaign manager was found guilty of causing a false record.
The charges filed against a third man, John Tate, were dropped earlier this month.
The men were charged in connection with a scheme to pay former Iowa state senator Kent Sorenson thousands to switch his support from Michele Bachmann to Ron Paul during the 2012 presidential election.
