Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-Ky.) wife, Kelley Paul, said that neither she nor her husband will be backing down in the face of death threats and a package allegedly containing white powder that was sent to their Kentucky home.
Kelley Paul tweeted that she found a package at her home and called the FBI. The Capitol Police confirmed to news outlets that officials are investigating the incident, while Sen. Paul, who was injured after his neighbor attacked him several years ago, said he will “take these threats immensely seriously.”
In a series of tweets, the senator’s wife noted that a number of celebrities and high-profile individuals have made comments cheering the attack against her husband in 2017.
“Just this weekend. For years people like @BetteMidler have cheered Rand’s horrific attack and serious injuries. The former teacher of the year @RodRobinsonRVA tweeted that Rand’s attacker was a ‘hero’ and urged Mitch McConnell’s neighbors to ‘step up.’ Why is he still teaching?” she wrote. She also noted that 1980s pop singer Richard Marx “was inciting more violence” recently and pointed to reports saying that a Democratic PAC paid the operator of the “BrooklynDad_Defiant” Twitter account, which typically posts pro-Democratic talking points.
Marx, known for the hit “Right Here Waiting,” celebrated the actions of Paul’s neighbor, Rene Boucher, who attacked the Kentucky Republican in 2017 and left him with several broken ribs. Boucher pleaded guilty to the assault.
“I am sick of the hatred and vitriol from people who boast of their ’empathy and compassion’ in their bios,” Kelley Paul wrote. “Rand will continue to stand up for our constitutionally protected liberties. He will keep questioning the ‘experts.’”
“We won’t be intimidated,” she said. “And yes, we have guns.”
Over the past weekend, Sen. Paul, who is an ophthalmologist, said that he will not receive the COVID-19 vaccine and argued that he is likely naturally immune after contracting the virus last year. That statement may have been what prompted Marx to praise Boucher.
Last summer, Paul and his wife were accosted in Washington by Black Lives Matter protesters, who shouted threats at the two.
