[Ed. – Liberal civility on display once again.]
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said police have arrested a man who threatened to chop up his family with an ax.
“This man had threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an ax,” Paul said during an interview at a Rotary Club event in Kentucky.
“It’s just horrendous that we’re having to deal with things like this,” Paul said, adding that over the last year, he was physically assaulted by his neighbor while doing lawn work in his front yard, and he was also “shot at” during a Congressional baseball practice last June.
“I’ve had a year where it’s becoming more and more aware that we have these real threats out there,” Paul said.
In the interview, Paul said he now has 247 security at his side.
“I can’t go anywhere without security. I can’t even go to church without being worried about someone being there,” Paul said.
