Remember how I caught (thank you, helpful reader/tipster) Rand Paul running a full page ad in the Herald Leader touting the endorsement of the then-alleged Curbstomper Tim Profitt, the very same day that Stompgate was blowing up nationally?
Well, he’s done it again.
Below is a full page Rand Paul ad that is in the new issue of Business Lexington that will hit newsstands tonight. You’ll notice that among his endorsements from very special Central Kentuckians is his former Bourbon County coordinator who likes to stomp on the head of defenseless women and demand that they apologize to him afterward, Tim Profitt:
According to one of the publishers, the edition was finalized on Monday, but he wasn’t aware of any attempt by the Rand Paul campaign to pull or change the ad since the Curbstomping went down that night.
Yesterday, Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton said that Rand had “decisively severed all ties with the supporter in question”.
Well, he’ll have this ad touting the Curbstomper endorsement on newsstands in Lexington for the next week. So, besides that and the $2000 that the Curbstomper gave Rand that he’s not returning… yeah, no ties.
Be sure to share the new edition of Business Lexington with your friends. Especially your ladyfriends.
(Oh, and one more note of interest for Lexington readers. Councilman Ed Lane not only placed the lovely ad, but he threw all alphabetical protocol to the wind to put his name at the top of Fayette County. Such an odd move for such a humble man…)
