The man who injured Rand Paul got only thirty days while it still hurts the Senator to breathe.

The man who injured Rand Paul claims he lost his temper over yard waste. That story has zero plausibility.

[…]

“Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe,” Paul said. “It’s just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this.”
