New Liberal RoboCall: Rand Paul “Hates Christianity”
In an eleventh hour, desperate attack from a third party, liberal Democrats are again trying to attack Rand Paul’s religion and mislead voters about his Christianity. According to the AP, a Paul-supporting minister claims he received a RoboCall from the Kentucky Leadership Council that states Rand Paulis not a “Christian and that he hates Christianity.”
LONDON, Ky. — A western Kentucky minister says that Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul is facing renewed attacks on his religion through automated calls to voters.
The Rev. Lucy Tedrick of Marion, a Republican pastor who supports Paul, said she got a call Friday saying Paul “is not a Christian and that he hates Christianity.”
Paul campaign manager Jesse Benton says the calls are “deplorable.” Conway spokesman John Collins said the campaign did not authorize or place any such calls.
Tedrick said the call was credited to the Kentucky Leadership Council, led by retired Marine Lt. Col. Andrew Horne. The Center for Responsive Politics says the group has spent more than $130,000 opposing Paul.
Jack Conway should condemn this malicious attack as quickly and promptly as Rand Paul condemned the man who acted out of bounds against a MoveOn.org activist at a pre-debate rally. An attack is an attack whether it is physical or an outright lie.
