White Powder, Photo With Vulgar Death Threat Sent To Sen. Rand Paul’s Home
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. says he is the victim of a death threat and suspicious substance in a package that was sent to his home in Kentucky.
The letter contained a photoshopped image of the Senator with a gun to his head, with the message: “I’ll finish what your neighbor started, you motherfucker!”
The message is apparently referencing a 2017 incident where Paul’s neighbor, Rene Boucher, attacked the Kentucky Republican during a fight about yard work.
“I take these threats immensely seriously,” Paul said in a statement Monday. “I have been targeted multiple times now, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to advocated for violence against me and my family. This must stop. Just this weekend Richard Marx called for violence against me and now we receive this despicable powder filled letter.”
