Under increasing harassment Rand Paul’s wife pens open letter to Cory Booker, urges him to retract incendiary statement

Sen. Rand Paul’s wife wrote an open letter this week to Sen. Cory Booker urging him to retract a statement made during the summer in support of the harassment of Republican members of Congress.

“Earlier this week, Rand was besieged in the airport by activists ‘getting up in his face,’ as you, Senator Booker, encouraged them to do a few months ago,” Kelley Paul wrote in a letter published to CNN.

During a controversial speech at the National Conference on Ending Homelessness in July, the New Jersey senator had derided congressional supporters of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as “evil” and urged his constituents to “get up in the face of some congresspeople.”


Though Booker earned widespread condemnation for this divisive remark, he never retracted his statement or apologized for it. Nor has he ever apologized for his other shady behavior.

“Preventing someone from moving forward, thrusting your middle finger in their face, screaming vitriol — is this the way to express concern or enact change? Or does it only incite unstable people to violence, making them feel that assaulting a person is somehow politically justifiable?” Kelley’s letter continued.

She also cited the 2017 congressional baseball shooting that critically wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, and the attack on her husband that left him with broken ribs but made Democrats laugh. She further noted that thanks to the left’s antics, she now keeps a loaded gun by her bed.

Kelley concluded by asking Booker to retract his statement and issue a sincere condemnation of the increasingly dangerous behavior being carried out by his and his Democrat peers’ constituents:

“I would call on you to retract your statement. I would call on you to condemn violence, the leaking of elected officials’ personal addresses (our address was leaked from a Senate directory given only to senators), and the intimidation and threats that are being hurled at them and their families.”

Just last week someone published the phone numbers and home addresses of Sens. Lindsey Graham, Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch to their respective Wikipedia pages. While Rand was not targeted by this malicious attack — which has since been traced to a former Democrat staffer  — he condemned it nevertheless. Booker, on the other hand, did not.

By Thursday morning Booker had not yet responded to the letter by Paul’s wife. However, he and his fellow Democrats’ constituents had made it clear on Twitter that they didn’t give a damn about the South Carolina wife’s sincere concerns.

Look, and be prepared to feel disgusted at the viciousness of the modern left:

These are the same sorts of people who see nothing wrong with potentially ruining a man’s life over unproven allegations of sexual assault or mocking that same man’s daughter. Despite the emotions of anguish and pain expressed by Paul’s wife in her letter, it seems unlikely that either Booker or his constituents will care. And that is genuinely sad.
