Conway Spox: Will Rand Paul Apologize To Stomping Victim?


Jack Conway spokesman John Collins sent over a statement calling out Rand Paul, who has apparently not reached out to apologize to assault victim Lauren Valle.

“We are still waiting for Rand Paul to apologize to the victim of this attack,” Collins says. “A boot stomp to the head of a woman is never appropriate,  Rand should apologize to her, stop blaming others, and identify the others involved in this thuggish behavior and
disassociate his campaign from them immediately.”

Intentionally or not, the language in this statement is similar to the language Conway used to question Rand Paul’s college antics, which included hazing a female friend by placing her in a stream and telling her pray to “Aqua Buddha”
