Imagine that you are outside your home, mowing your lawn and you are viciously attacked by a neighbor over politics! Now, imagine that you are the second Republican Senator to be harmed by radical left loonies.
In this case, it was his neighbor…an anesthesiologist, Rene Boucher. Senator Paul has five broken ribs. It is unclear when he will return to Congress per Fox News.
“U.S. Sen. Rand Paul has five rib fractures and lung contusions as a result of an apparent assault Friday by a neighbor at Paul’s home in Bowling Green,” a spokesman for Kentucky’s junior senator said Sunday.
Senior adviser Doug Stafford said Paul’s injuries cause pain that could persist for weeks, perhaps even months, but that the Republican plans to return to the U.S. Senate soon. “Senator Paul has five rib fractures including 3 displaced fractures,” Stafford said in a statement emailed to the Daily News by Paul’s staff. “This type of injury is caused by high velocity severe force. It is not clear exactly how soon he will return to work, as the pain is considerable as is the difficulty in getting around, including flying.”
Assaulting a member of Congress…is a Federal crime. Boucher was arrested and released on $7,500.00 bond and has a hearing set for Thursday. And Boucher, allegedly, attacked from behind. The worse kind of coward.
Sound off below in comments and let us know what you think of the physical attacks on our Republican members of Congress.
