A great deal of mystery has surrounded the attack Republican Senator Rand Paul suffered at the hands of his Bowling Green, Kentucky neighbor Rene Boucher. Paul’s wife Kelley felt motivated to finally clear the air about what actually happened that day to severely injure her husband.
Wrote Kelley in an op-ed for CNN about the severity of Rand’s injury, “The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain. He has not had a single night’s sleep uninterrupted by long periods of difficult breathing or excruciating coughing.” She added, “There have been several nights where I had my hand on my phone ready to call 911 when his breathing became so labored it was terrifying.”
The lawyer for assailant Boucher depicted the assault as “a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial.” He added, “The unfortunate occurrence of November 3 has absolutely nothing to do with either’s politics or political agendas.”
Kelley said that the media had not reported the story truthfully, and that they had not spoken to their neighbor Rene in a decade. Said Paul, “Nobody in our family has, nor have we communicated with anyone in his family. With Rand’s travel to D.C. in the last seven years, he has rarely seen this man at all.”
She described, “The only ‘dispute’ existed solely in the attacker’s troubled mind, until, on a beautiful autumn day, he ran down the hill on our property and slammed his body into Rand’s lower back as he stood facing away, wearing noise canceling headphones to protect his ears from the lawnmower.” Kelley then clarified, “This was not a ‘scuffle,’ a ‘fight’ or an ‘altercation,’ as many in the media falsely describe it. It was a deliberate, blindside attack. The impact left Rand with six broken ribs, three displaced, pleural effusion and now pneumonia.” Are you glad Kelley told the truth about this strange, unprovoked attack?
