    Woman's head stepped on by Rand Paul supporters


    LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Supporters of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul wrestled a woman to the ground and one stepped on her head after she tried to confront the candidate in Kentucky.


    The incident happened Monday night in Lexington right before a debate between Paul and Democratic opponent Jack Conway.

    Lauren Valle of liberal group MoveOn.org, told Louisville station WDRB she was trying to give Paul a fake award when his supporters took her to the ground.

    Television footage shows Valle's blonde wig being pulled off before she's pinned to the ground. A man then puts his foot down on her head. Valle said the incident left her with "a bit of a headache."

    A police watch commander said early Tuesday that she didn't know if any arrests were made.

    Paul's campaign released a statement calling the altercation "incredibly unfortunate" and expressed relief that the woman was not injured.

    "Violence of any kind has no place in our civil discourse and we urge supporters on all sides to be civil to one another as tensions rise heading toward this very important election," the statement said.

    I watched the video this morning and can't find it now. Maybe someone else has it.

    I really like the part about wearing a Blond wig and working her way forward to present a "FAKE GIFT". She was put on the ground, her wig did fall off but the part about the foot on her head was a bit of a ....er...watch the video.

    Question: Would anyone else have been treated any differently ? Who could tell what she had in her hand ?

    All this from MoveOn.org. Did we expect any less ?

    Thoughts ???? :)

    was on drudge and now I cant find it....

    anyways, saw the vid and cometary from the local news.... she wore a wig, was pushing to get to Rand the moment he stepped out of the car and was trying to give Rand some stuipd award for something like the corporate take over of America.

    From what I have seen and heard... I wish the guy doing the stomping did it harder and wore cleats....

    These lefties will not stop until we are dead.... The president's comments he made today make that real clear to me.

    I saw the footage tonight on the national news. They failed to show the wig and moving forward part so it looked just like a rowdy thug stomping a poor defenseless woman.

    That's sad. I don't like what liberals stand for but that doesn't give me a right to stomp them does it?

    Disagreement over politics should be expressed on the ballot, not in a fist fight.

    The only time you should resort to violence is when free elections break down and don't exist.

    I agree with you completly. I really think the right wing side is tired of playing fair. There are a lot of emotions out there that will cause some people to do some crazy things.

    Then all it does is makes a bad name for those who don't want violence. In my opinion, the left wing is just as bad as the right wing. Like the Black Panthers intimidating voters. Granted they weren't stomping people. But listen to that guy talking about how they should kill white children and all that stuff... Try going to Oakland, CA and see if a white face doesn't get beaten down.

    They have a right to express their opinion. But as the First Amendment says "the right of the people to peaceably assemble..."

    Looked to me like he stepped on her shoulder/back, not her head.

    Maybe he thought she was an assassin. Rushed up to the candidate, in disguise, trying to shove something at him. They took her down and he stood on her, to keep her from getting back up.

    If it had been a Presidential candidate, instead of Senatorial, there would have been Secret Service there, and they'd have done the same, if not more. What's the big deal?

    Some dumbocrats need their heads stomped on, IMHO. Then they would reconsider why they act like they do. I know several who could benefit from this, too.

    As usual, the media only shows right-on-left "violence", and not left-on-right, like SEIU thugs. Typical.

    Rand Paul’s official condemnation of the violence was appropriate.

    There was a time when Americans and real men had higher standards.

    For a big guy like that to stomp on a small woman (who was already being held down) was cowardly and un-American.

    The sad reality is that the young woman and the man who stomped on her, no doubt, both love America.

    The moral of the story is that too much politics, like too much whisky, can make men do things they often regret upon sober reflection.

    Best regards,
    Greg

    I agree!

    My 1st inclination was to believe this was staged in order to make RP and his supporters look bad.

    It also appears the guy who stepped on her head was just trying to control her until security could regain control. He showed restraint to me; and after he realized security was regaining control he just went on about his business. (She was already being aggressive and disruptive. IMHO; she was a "real" threat and needed to be stopped.)

    But, after review I believe that this women needed to be controled and escorted out of the event. It is absolutely clear that she was there to cause some type of trouble. Nobody could know at the time that this was NOT some type of homocidal maniac with a gun; or maybe a bomb. (lunatic sure)

    I wouldn't have stepped on her head. But, I would have moved to stop her progress and physically controlled her until security showed up. I am ALWAYS on high alert whenever I attend a "Tea Party" rally because the left have ABSOLUTELY proven themselves to be dangerous and violent!

    Let's not forget their have been people on the "right" who have been seriously hurt by union thugs and others on the left.

    I'm wondering how much she got paid to do that. To provoke an incident that would make Rand look bad.
