The neighbors of the Senator are standing behind him in the wake of his brutal attack by a liberal neighbor who lives next door.
As the media often does, they spin the story to favor their agenda, and it looks like they don’t want anyone to speculate on the political motivations that might be behind the savage attack.They’re reporting a landscaping dispute caused the dust up. Neighbors say “No.”
Breitbart has the story:
Rand Paul’s neighbors are calling into question reports suggesting the Kentucky senator’s character and libertarianism contributed to one member of their community allegedly attacking him at his home in Bowling Green, KY, last week.
In a recent USA Today report, the developer of Paul’s Rivergreen neighborhood described Boucher as a “near-perfect” neighbor, but that “the libertarian politician is a different story”.
Jim Skaggs paints a picture of Paul as a libertarian property rights zealot who “was probably the hardest person to encourage to follow the (homeowner’s association regulations) of anyone out here because he has a strong belief in property rights.”
Yeah, well, the senator’s neighbors are saying not so.
“As a friend and neighbor of the Paul family, I have been disturbed by the inaccuracies in numerous media accounts of the assault that occurred on Friday, November 3rd,” writes Travis Creed in an email to Breitbart News. “The stories of a ‘landscaping dispute’, or a dispute of any sort between Rand Paul and Rene Boucher are erroneous and unfounded. The reason for Mr. Boucher’s bizarre attack is known only to him. Statements to the contrary are irresponsible and unnecessary.”
And there are many more neighbors who have backed up the Senator. It seems Paul and his wife are very well liked members of their community. Obviously the story is unfolding.
