Rand Paul returns to Washington following assault
FRANKFORT, Ky. - Sen. Rand Paul is returning to Washington following an attack in his yard that left him with six broken ribs.
Paul posted a message on his Twitter account on Monday saying he is returning to work in the Senate despite being in a good deal of pain.
Kelley and I want to thank everyone once again for your thoughts and prayers for my recovery. While I’m still in a good deal of pain, I will be returning to work in the Senate today, ready to fight for liberty and help move forward with tax cuts in the coming days and weeks.— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) November 13, 2017
Paul was attacked Nov. 3 while mowing his lawn. Police have charged Rene Boucher with misdemeanor assault. Boucher pleaded not guilty during a court hearing last week. Boucher and Paul have been neighbors for 17 years.
Boucher's attorney said the attack was motivated by a trivial dispute but has not elaborated. Paul's senior adviser said the senator had not had a conversation with Boucher in years.
Paul tweeted he will be ready to move forward with tax cuts in the coming days.
