Since serving as Ron Paul's fundraising director in 2008, I have often been asked what made Congressman Paul so popular -- why he was able to raise so much money, especially online. In recent months, a new question has replaced the old ones: Will his son be able to do the same?

Pema Levy and Sam Brodey, Mother Jones: When the New York Times revealed that Hillary Clinton used a private email address as secretary of state, GOP presidential candidate-in-waiting Jeb Bush pounced. "Transparency matters," he tweeted, linking to the archive of his own emails that he had made public a month earlier. But Bush is hardly in a position to take potshots at Clinton over her emails. Like Clinton, he conducted government business using a personal email account (two of them, actually). He released only a portion of his correspondence from his time as governor of Florida.

Looking back at Friday the 12th, the House voted on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), the controversial bill that gives power to the executive branch to negotiate treaties.

An East Tennessee hardware store owner posted a hand-written "No Gays Allowed" sign on his store. Jeff Amyx, a Baptist minister who owns Amyx Hardware and Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, said he posted the sign because gay and lesbian couples are against his religion. He is not planning to take it down. "They gladly stand for what they believe in, why can't I?" Amyx said. "They believe their way is right, I believe it's wrong. But yet I'm going to take more persecution than them because I'm standing for what I believe in."
