Rand Paul’s Attacker Speaks Out
Article from Roll Call by Emily Kopp.
In a five-hour deposition Monday, Sen. Rand Paul’s neighbor described his thinking on the day he tackled the congressman in November of last year over what he says was a dispute over yard waste.
“When I saw him once again, he was off of his mower, taking branches from that one pile and putting them on the property line to intentionally aggravate me. I lost it and became irate,” Rene Boucher said.
Boucher then charged toward Paul and knocked him to the ground, leaving him with six broken ribs and an injured lung.
In a Bowling Green courtroom, Boucher testified that the brush pile he “conservatively” estimated to measure 10 feet long and five feet high became a source of intense aggravation, WBKO reported.

A pile 10 feet long and 5 feet high would mean that Paul’s property would have to be a minimum of about 12 acres and have about 300 trees on it. I call total BS.
Rocketman; I only have 5 1/2 acres. I could form a brush pile 10′ long and 5′ high tomorrow if I had time. Once and a while we get a geoengineered storm that keeps me pretty busy with clean up. I though that if this very short tempered neighbor was telling the truth about this pile it would indicate that Sen. Rand Paul had found a very cost effective way to build a fence. And he was doing the labor himself! Wow! He must not be on the take like most of them. I am always proud of Sen. Rand Paul.
I hope Rand sues him for millions, the lying bastard.
