OK

So who the hell is Paul Dickerson and what is Robert (Bobby) Eberle thanking him for?  That's the question I asked myself when I first saw the name in a letter at GOPUSA.

Both Bruce Eberle and Bobby Eberle posted letters concerning the merger of Millions of Americans and GOPUSA.

In Bobby's letter he thanks Paul Dickerson and refers to him as part of the GOPUSA team.  

"I would personally like to thank Bruce Eberle, Bill Griffiths, Brian Anderson, and Mike Hiban at MillionsOfAmericans.com for their hard work in making this merger possible. In particular, a special thank-you is owed to Bruce Eberle for trusting GOPUSA to be the "right" organization to take the MillionsOfAmericans.com message forward. Thanks also goes out to Paul Dickerson, Charlie Weldon, and Terri Hillhouse of the GOPUSA team for their valuable insights."

Charlie Weldon and Terri Hillhouse are/were listed as board members of GOPUSA--Paul Dickerson is/was not.

So I did a search for Paul Dickerson.  I found a Paul Dickerson in Houston Texas. He is. . .
