Rand Paul Wins $580,000 in Lawsuit Against Neighbor who Attacked Him

Published

on

Rand Paul was awarded a sum of $580,000 Wednesday in a civil suit against Rene Boucher, a man who violently attacked the Kentucky Senator in 2017.

Boucher, Paul’s neighbor, tackled Paul in his yard in an assault that broke six of his ribs and left him with enduring and painful injuries. While a specific motive for the assault hasn’t been identified, Paul has rejected attempts by mainstream media outlets to link it to a neighborhood dispute of sorts. Many have surmised that political grievances were a motivating factor, as Boucher was a known partisan Democrat.

Paul’s wife, Kelly, had written an op-ed describing the Senator’s struggles to deal with the debilitating injuries he suffered from Boucher’s assault, which he had described recovering from as a “living hell.” In addition to the broken ribs, Paul suffered from lung damage and accompanying pneumonia with complications.

The ruling of the civil suit Paul filed against Boucher requires the attacker to pay $7,834 in medical expenses, $200,000 for Paul’s pain and suffering, and $375,000 in punitive damages. Boucher had earlier been found guilty of assaulting a member of Congress in criminal court in regards to the incident- getting off with a minuscule thirty-day jail sentence for the serious assault. Paul had expressed dissatisfaction with the lenient sentence given to Boucher by the federal courts, which is currently under appeal by prosecutors, who seek a sentence of 21 months.

On Twitter, Paul addressed the outcome of the suit, stating that he pursued the case as a means to deter future political violence in America from individuals such as Boucher.

Paul’s tweets on the matter, which align with the theory that Boucher’s backyard assault of the Senator was in fact politically motivated by his hatred of his politics, go on to emphasize that it’s never okay for American to descend to the level of tribal and violent rage on the basis of politics.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters

Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.

Published

A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.

Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.

Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.

A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.

Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.

Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.

McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
