In yet another example of Rand Paul’s contradictory behavior, it has been revealed by Ben Swann that the Kentucky Senator may very well have attempted to kill the campaign of a “Liberty Democrat” for U.S. Senate in Maine.
At the very least, Paul was painfully ignorant of both the positions of the candidate he endorsed as well as the positions of the one he did not.
Given the track record of Paul, however, it is much more likely that he was fully aware that Republican incumbent Susan Collins was a supporter of NSA spying and domestic wiretapping, the PATRIOT ACT, as well as a tacit supporter of torture.
That being said, before taking the stage to endorse Collins, Paul spoke to the Portland Herald Press where he stated “I whole-heartedly endorse Senator Collins for re-election. I think she is doing a great job for Maine and for the country.” However, when Paul was forced to address Collins’ stance on the NSA scandal, he responded by stating “I don’t really know, exactly, what her position is on the NSA; you’d have to ask her about that.”
