LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB Fox 41) — Outside the Conway-Paul debate, a Rand Paul supporter pulled the woman’s blonde wig off and stomped on her head. She was representing the liberal organization MoveOn.org and claimed to be presenting Paul with an award from RepubliCorp. That’s a group created by MoveOn.org that focuses on what it calls the merger between corporate America and the Republican Party.
“I’m here to present Rand Paul with the ‘Employee of the Month’ award, however his supporters were not very nice to me and my message which is same as everyone else. I got my head stepped on and I have a bit of a headache,” said Lauren Valle, MoveOn.org.
The woman denied police were involved, but right afterwards officers pulled her aside to question her about the incident.
According to WTVQ, an assault charge has been filed, but there have been no arrests.
Blue Bluegrass has photographs of the man in the plaid shirt who is clearly seen holding down Lauren Valle as his co-attacker stomps on her head and neck.
Bring these brutal pigs to justice immediately!
UPDATE: Barefoot and Progressive has identified the stomper as Tim Profitt, Rand Paul’s Bourbon County coordinator. Profitt recently admitted to the attack by way of an “apology” issued to the Associated Press. Of course, he’s claiming the video makes it look “worse than it really was”, as if there is such a thing as a nice way to repeatedly stomp on the head and neck of a woman who’s being held down on the ground. Profitt is not only a monster, he’s a complete and total buffoon, if his statement to the press is any indication.
Tim Profitt, a volunteer with the Republican’s U.S. Senate campaign, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the camera angle made the scuffle Monday night appear worse that it was. He criticized police for not stepping in and says other supporters warned authorities about the activist.
“Gosh, the video of me stomping on a woman’s head and neck wasn’t nearly as bad as it looks, and the police didn’t do their job because they didn’t arrest the woman whose head I was FORCED to stomp!”
TPM has more. Now, who’s the oaf who held her down? Maybe he’ll make a similarly boneheaded statement to the press.
