Kelley Paul, Sen. Rand Paul’s wife, shamed the media in an op-ed for CNN and updated the world on her husband’s condition, after he was attacked by a neighbor earlier this month.
‘The average person takes 20,000 breaths a day. Since November 3, my husband, Rand Paul, has not taken a single one without pain,’ she wrote.
She was angry that reporters were ‘delighting’ in headlines suggesting that the senator was at fault for the ‘deliberate, blindside attack’ by an ‘attention-seeking person’ the couple hadn’t spoken to in a decade.
‘The fact is, neither Rand nor I have spoken to the attacker in 10 years (since before his wife and children moved away) other than a casual wave from the car,’ Kelley Paul wrote.
Neither of their families had communicated either, she said.
And they’d seen the neighbor less frequently once Rand Paul was elected to the Senate in 2010, meaning they split their time between the Bowling Green, Kentucky home, where the incident occurred, and Washington, D.C.
