Senator Rand Paul suffers five broken ribs after being assaulted at his home.

A senior adviser for the Kentucky lawmaker said Paul is in a considerable amount of pain and has difficulty moving around.

He added, the pain could last weeks or even months.

This comes after police arrested his neighbor– 59-year-old Rene Boucher — who is accused of blindsiding and attacking the senator.

He was released from jail Saturday after posting a $7,500 bond.

A motive for the attack is not yet known.

    “A motive for the attack is not yet known.”

    The attacker is socialist scum. There’s your motive.

    WOW! not even safe mowing your own grass! So sorry, hope he recovers fast. God bless him and his family all my prayers.

    My instincts tell me there is more to this story. Why did he only get $7,500 bail? Why is Rand and his people not making a bigger deal out about this? It is almost like they want it to go away more than they guy who did it does.

    • BigMark

      Probably the Judge and the perp are related….and Paul doesn’t want to s#!+ where he eats.

    Can Rand phone in his vote?

  • stevens123

    $7500 bond? that’s it?

    • tedlv

      Exactly what I was thinking!

  • Sui-Juris

    You can’t feel too sure of your position if you have to blindside some little 160lbs. guy like Rand Paul. SMH

  • landy fincannon

    7.500 dollar bond seems rather lenient for an assault.

    • Varangian Guard

      It is the ANTIFA rate, and he gets a professional discount on top of it. He narcs on his fellow physicians to ambulance chaser shysters……

      Judge and criminal probably golf together at country club. Both liberals.

    • Letmesay

      I thought it should be at least 100k. But something is not coming out ,we are clueless at to why it happened. Some day maybe.

      • landy fincannon

        It diffidently wasn’t over a fence dispute

    Pugilism among our Political leaders? Barbaric, I tell you!

    • Beedogz

      Blindsided from the back while mowing his yard. Typical cowardly liberal move.

      • “I’m a Rooster!”

        Ah, the ‘ol sucker punch. Never could stand those fella’s that threw those.

  • seawulf

    Guess that’ll teach Paul a lesson about letting his dog poop in the neighbor’s yard!

    “Who ever is the better fist fighter is the most correct.” Said no sane person ever!

    • Beedogz

      Blindsided from the back while mowing his yard. Typical cowardly liberal move. Surprised the liberal coward acted alone.

    Unfortunate for sure. But there is one positive to take away from the assaults on Republican legislators, some of them are beginning to feel what some of us “average” people feel every day. They can’t totally exempt themselves from reality and they are human after all. Maybe a little pain is good. But that’s just me.

    • Harvey Gamel

      with any luck, you are next, you ignorant POS

    • Flagfriend

      Hmm, Your neighbors tackle you from behind on a regular basis?

      Not sure we understand your point.

      Sounds like Paul hasn’t totally exempted himself from reality – he mows his own lawn just like I do.

      • Just A Guy

        Obviously you don’t. And you don’t speak for everyone, BTW. Have a great day now.

  • America’s Race to the Bottom

    5 broken ribs is not minor. Geez.

    • fish1552

      In emergency medicine terms, it is. Major would require surgery or drastic measures to prevent death or disfigurement.

  • Commonsense

    This year has been full of violent attacks on Republican legislators. This can’t continue to be tolerated.
