In a heated exchange with an AP reporter, Mitt Romney vehemently insisted that lobbyist, Ron Kaufman, was "not paid" to advise his campaign.  It was an ugly exchange.

Romney said that Ron Kaufman, a senior partner at the lobbying firm Dutko Worldwide, was just an unpaid adviser and friend--insisting on this point several times.

However, a simple search of Romney's recent campaign expense filings found these two entries:

  • Dec. 3, 2007 -  a payment of "$300" by the Romney campaign to "Kaufman, Ronald."
  • Oct. 19, 2007 - a payment of  "$100" to "Dutko World Wide."

Oh, well.  I guess Ron Kaufman did get paid--something, anyway--by the Romney campaign, as did Kaufman's employer--a lobbying firm.
