As the candidates arrived, a group of Paul supporters pulled a female MoveOn member to the ground and held her there as another Paul supporter stomped on the back of her head and neck.
According to the Louisville Courier Journal, “Lauren Valle of MoveOn.org approached Paul and tried to give him an “employee of the month award” from Republicorp…a fake business MoveOn created to symbolize what it says is the merger of the GOP and business interests controlling political speech.”
The individual who stomped on Lauren Valle’s head has been positively identified as Tim Proffitt, the now former Bourbon County Coordinator for the campaign of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul.
Here’s some video of the attack:
To its credit, the Paul campaign was quick to denounce Proffitt’s actions, but as of yet there has been no apology to Lauren Valle on the part of the Paul campaign.
