‘Don’t Tread on’ Ed Dillard has taken the Ron Paul community by storm, though has barely been mentioned throughout mainstream media. On Tuesday, after an incident involving Republican Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich, Dillard was left with a fractured foot and ruffled feathers, but no apology, even though it was requested by Jesse Benton, spokesperson for the Ron Paul Campaign.
“They say the culture of an organization is a reflection of its top executive and today’s deplorable behavior against Ron Paul supporter Eddie Dillard in Florida reflects very poorly on Congressman Gingrich,” said Mr. Benton, “I call on Congressman Gingrich to publicly apologize to Mr. Dillard.”

But has an apology come? Not one. A word from the Gingrich Campaign? Nada.
As I personally searched the web under any tag I could possibly think of, I found minimum articles pertaining to the incident, and only a singular article mentioning the fact that Mr. Dillard’s foot was fractured:
Ron Paul supporter says Gingrich security officer fractured his foot
Of which, hardly mentions the severity of the situation.
Is this what our political campaigns have come to? Obvious schoolyard-like bullying tactics that result to obvious ignorance among public media and little-to-no reaction among voters?
