Nothing like watching a big man stomp a woman’s head and give her a concussion.
A prelude to Second Amendment remedies!
Moveon (dot) org activist, Lauren Valle spoke briefly to the Associated Press before being taken to the hospital.
Valle carried a sign mocking Paul’s ties to corporate special interests. She was trying to get Paul in a photo with the sign and was assaulted as soon as the candidate walked away. Police say they are investigating the incident and have not yet identified the man who stomped Valle’s head.
A statement from Rand Paul’s campaign:
We want everybody to be civil. We want this campaign to be about issues. I will tell you that when we arrived there was enormous passion on both sides. It really was something where you walk into a haze of lights flashing, people yelling and screaming, bumping up. And there was a bit of a crowd control problem. I don’t want anybody though to be involved in things that aren’t civil. I think this should always be about the issues. And it is an unusual situation to have so many people so passionate on both sides jockeying back and forth. And it wasn’t something that I liked or anybody liked about that situation. So I hope in the future it is going to be better.”
