GET IN HERE AND SPECULATE WHY RAND PAUL WAS ATTACKED

Rand's neighbor of 17 years ambushed the good Senator while mowing his lawn and beat the stuffing out of him, cracking 5 ribs, knocking out 3 teeth, and possibly breaking his jaw. He was charged with a 4th degree assault and released on a laughable $7,500 bail. What?!

Rand's staff has been downplaying it and his neighbors' lawyer said it was an altercation of a 'trivial' event. What?!

“Senator Paul has five rib fractures including three displaced fractures. This type of injury is caused by high-velocity severe force,” Doug Stafford, a senior adviser to Paul, said in a statement, according to multiple media reports.

“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,” the reports quoted Stafford as saying. He added that the senator’s type of injury could lead to life-threatening injuries.

In short, you can now beat the shit out of your local US Senator for a slap on the wrist and $7,500 bail cost. What really happened here? Crime of passion, absurd accident, fight club?
