Authorities Claim Sen. Rand Paul Attack Was ‘Politically Motivated’

The FBI told local Kentucky media early Sunday that an assault that left Republican Sen. Rand Paul injured and reeling was “politically motivated.”

According to WNKY, a Kentucky NBC affiliate, authorities and Paul’s neighbors believe Rene Boucher attacked Paul over his ideological leanings. The FBI, the local news organization says, has confirmed the motive.

Boucher is a registered Democrat, according to voter rolls, updated in March of 2017.

Boucher, who reportedly lives down the street from Paul, assaulted the senator while Paul was mowing his lawn. Paul, who was wearing earplugs, stepped off his ride-on mower to handle something on the ground when Boucher attacked.

Senator Paul tweeted the following message about the attack:

After the shooting attack on Rep. Steve Scalise, Republicans have to be very careful. The unhinged left is acting out and they’re not rational.
