Leftist Agitator Lunges At Rand Paul And Is Restrained Outside Paul /Conway Debate

Of course, that's not how the Left is reporting it.

Rand Paul Supporter Stomps on the Head of a MoveOn Activist

Oh, please.

Here's what really happened. Rand Paul and Jack Conway were having their final debate (and Rand did quite well by the way). As Rand Paul left his car to enter the building, a woman who had infiltrated the crowd of Paul supporters in a blond wig suddenly lunged at Paul with something in her hand.

Two Paul supporters grabbed her, pulled her blonde wig off and wrestled her to the ground, after which one of them restrained her by putting his foot on her shoulder, as you can see in the video. At which point someone says 'no no, call the police' and the standee relents and moves off. The term 'stomping' applied to the action here hardly qualifies.

So.who is this woman? She's Lauren Valle, a paid, professional Leftist agitator who works for MoveOn and ACORN and has a long track record of this sort of thing, including a felony bust. She claims she was carrying a a satiric antibusiness “award”to present to Paul.

So let's reiterate.. this professional Leftist agitator came into an event disguised, lunged at a GOP Senatorial candidate, got wrestled to the ground and was restrained by having someone put his foot on her to pin her down.

For all they knew, she had a gun or a knife or G-d knows what.

What would the Secret Service have done if someone lunged like that at Obama? I guarantee the Left wouldn't be calling it a 'brutal attack.'

And in fact Paul supporter Tim Profitt, the man who admitted wrestled Valle to the ground says that an attempt was made to get the police involved beforehand:

Paul supporter Tim Profitt said video of the scuffle made it appear worse than it was and he chided police for not stepping in. Lauren Valle, the 23-year-old activist with the group MoveOn.org, said her face was swollen and her neck and shoulder were sore after she was wrestled to the ground by Paul supporters Monday night when she tried to give the candidate an “employee of the month” award.

Valle was roughed up before the debate between Paul and Democrat Jack Conway. The race is one of the most closely watched and hotly contested in the midterm elections.

“I’m sorry that it came to that, and I apologize if it appeared overly forceful, but I was concerned about Rand’s safety,” Profitt told The Associated Press.

Paul’s campaign dropped Profitt as campaign coordinator in Bourbon County in central Kentucky and banned him from future events.

Profitt said he was interviewed by a Lexington police detective Tuesday, but that he had not been charged.

“A friend of mine went up to three policeman before Rand got there, and told them about the girl who was standing there with that wig on and that she was getting ready to do something,” Profitt said. “The policemen looked at him and said that’s not our job.”
While the Paul campaign has understandably distanced itself from the incident, I don't condemn it in the least. When you behave in a certain manner, you invite a certain response. And the fact that a video cam was all ready to go suggests to me that the desperate Left was simply trying to gin up a little manufactured outrage before the mid terms.

Epic fail.
