Greg Sargent interviewed the woman who said Rand Paul and his college buddy ‘kidnapped’ her and made her worship “aquabuddha” down at the local creek. The gist of the interview is that she stands by the key factual claims but didn’t mean she was kidnapped in the legal sense. She portrays it as something more like hazing in which they went through motions of tying her up and ‘kidnapping’ but she was basically going along with it and wasn’t really being compelled against her will.
