UPDATE: He’s been identified to the cops as Mike Pezzano, a Tea Party activist.
I hope the cops arrest this guy. What is it about even the mildest opposition that sends right wingers over the edge?
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.
