Dr. Paul has come under fire for some racial overtones in his political newsletters published during the 1980s and early 1990s Dr. Paul has consistently denied knowledge that he knew what existed in these letters and has said repeatedly that because he was so busy with his practice that he did not pay close attention to them. He has also disavowed all racial statements that have been discovered. In 1995, this is how Dr. Paul described his political newsletters:
“…I also put a political type of business investment newsletter. It sort covered all these areas. And it covered a lot of about what was going on in Washington and financial events and especially some of the monetary events, since I had been especially interested in monetary policy and had been on the banking committee and still very interested in that subject. This newsletter dealt with it.”
Dr. Paul then goes on to list very specific subjects that were covered in the newsletter.
