Rand Paul Gives Update On His Condition
Article from The Hill by John Bowden.
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (R) released an update on his medical condition Wednesday via Twitter, writing that a new x-ray found six broken ribs and a buildup of fluid around his lungs.
Paul has been in the hospital since Saturday when he was assaulted by a neighbor. The suspect, 59-year-old Rene Boucher of Bowling Green, was arrested after he allegedly attacked the Kentucky senator while Paul was mowing his lawn.
“I appreciate all of the support from everyone. A medical update: final report indicates six broken ribs & new X-ray shows a pleural effusion,” Paul tweeted Wednesday.

The dispute between Paul and his neighbor, who is a Democrat, allegedly arose over yard care and not Paul’s politics, according to neighbors who spoke to The New York Times.

I am sorry that you were attacked. I wonder if you being a Republican or conservative had anything to do with it. I am from Franklin just south of B. G. Get well soon.
BILLY LAMBERT IT WASN’T CAUSE HE’S A REPUBLICAN OR A CONSERVATIVE IT’S ALL OVER HIS YARD CARE YOU JERK
And you know that for sure? How?
Your irrational statement betrays you as a rabid, radical liberal who does not like Rand Paul because he IS a patriot. No, you won’t admit it.
But your vicious words say it all.
Strong fence better than broken ribs
Praying for you, Rand. Get well. Some of us good folks in NW Iowa respect and admire you.
Considering the nature of the attack & if the reason stated is correct the attacker is in serious need of medical attention in a jail hospital.
Even a person with an IQ of below room temperature should be able to see that the dispute was not over lawn care.
The neighbor lied. There is no way that any dispute over yard care would ever warrant such a violent attack. There should be charges filed as a HATE CRIME even if the liberal DA will not support it. There needs to be a way to make sure this rabid liberal is made to regret his attack.
Obviously the chap needs medical treatment for his out-of-control temper. I mean no-one goes around beating up neighbours in their own front yards, especially over ‘yard care’. What does that even mean? It’s a totally pathetic line of defense. The man is clearly mad and the DA a wimp.
Too sweet: mowing his own lawn. A US Senator? Love you, Rand Paul, and I hope you’ll have a speedy recovery.
Hope you’ll be out mowing!!! your lawn!! again soon! Love you, Rand Paul. Hurry and get well.
