Republican senator Rand Paul is in serious condition, recovering from lung and rib injuries suffered from a physical assault by a neighbor.
Ignoring that Paul is now the victim of not 1, but 2 assassination attempts by crazed Democrats in the same year, the media has tried to create a narrative of a “selfish libertarian” Paul feuding with the attacker (neighbor Rene Boucher) over grass clippings.
But citizens from Rand’s neighborhood clearly think radical politics, not the Senator’s landscaping habits, are to blame.
“As a friend and neighbor of the Paul family, I have been disturbed by the inaccuracies in numerous media accounts of the assault that occurred on Friday, November 3rd,” Kentuckian Travis Creed writes in an email to Breitbart.
“The Senator and his wife Kelley are great people who would never harm anyone.”

Expressing the same concern, Alicia Stivers writes, “As neighbors and close personal friends of the Pauls for almost a quarter of a century, I have never heard Senator Paul speak an unkind word about anyone, let alone become physically violent. Which makes it all the more shocking that a next-door neighbor of many years who has not so much as exchanged an email or spoken word with Rand in several years, would race downhill and pummel Rand from behind.”
“The Pauls own a lovely, wooded lakeside lot in our small subdivision,” Stivers continues.
“In fact, the Pauls’ lot looks almost exactly the same today as it did 17 years ago when Dr. Boucher and his ex-wife chose their lot and built their house next door.”
“Between us, my husband and I have served four years on the neighborhood homeowners association board and we are unaware of any conflict or complaints from Dr. Boucher regarding the Pauls.”
“Whatever the ‘reason’ for this attack on Rand, there is absolutely no justification for Dr. Boucher’s behavior,” she adds.
Let’s hope Rand gets back to Congress just as Boucher is taken off to prison!
