Rand Paul Protester Gets Stomped in Kentucky
Matt | On 26, Oct 2010
I had to lean ALL THE WAY BACK after watching this clip! I just have a fresh case of “shock and awe” at this point.
In Kentucky, a fight broke out just before a Rand Paul and Jack Conway debate in Lexington. Police have confirmed that Rand Paul supporter, Tim Profitt, was the person who stomped on the the head of Lauren Valle of the liberal group MoveOn.org. Other Paul supporters snatched the wig Valle was wearing and dragged her to the ground before Profitt treated her like his doormat.
Valle was waiting on Paul to arrive at the debate. She was presenting him with a mock award of sorts to honor the union between corporate America and the Republican Party. Seems like the Republicans on-hand (and probably Tea Partiers) didn’t like that one. Paul is a favorite of the Tea Party in the state.
This is a goddamn shame! I know there’s strong contingency of people, such as MYSELF, who watched this video and thought, “I wish they would step on my head…” Let me tell you that there is NO CANDIDATE worthy me putting up with this mess. She didn’t deserve that at all.
Authorities say Valle suffered a concussion and multiple sprains, though she appeared on camera minutes after the incident. She said that she was familiar with her attacker from previous political protests.
