Ignorance is no excuse for Senator Rand Paul to mislead his constituents, nor is it an excuse for constituents to support a lying senator. With his record, there is no rational reason for anyone to believe a word that Rand Paul says. He has lied about so many things that a sane person would double check if he said his name is Rand Paul, and would not repeat a word he says until verifying claims like whether or not he voted on an issue (information that is available to all of us).
He lied about the Aqua Buddha situation, he lied about not knowing the man he hired to stomp a girl half his age and size, the man who is now trying to escape criminal charges because he believes he was justified in taking this action to protect Rand Paul from satire and truth. He lied about his positions when running for office, since they changed depending on the day and who he was speaking with. He lies. He lies easily and without conscience.
The citizens of Kentucky and of this nation do not deserve to have a liar in the Senate. Thank you, Lawrence O'Donnell, for calling him out on his lie this time. Please, continue to do so.
