In my column this morning about Monday’s stomping incident in Kentucky, I said “the whole story of this incident has not yet been told.” A bit more of the story came out today when Red State posted video that shows what happened before the now-notorious stomping. The video shows MoveOn.org activist Lauren Valle lunging toward Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul’s vehicle, thrusting her sign through the vehicle’s open window.
Red State is quick to say, “You don’t stomp on a person’s head.” Indeed. But as Red State also says, “the idea that Valle was the victim of an angry mob . . . is demonstrably false. . . . She claims to have been an innocent bystander. She clearly was not.”
