Sen. Rand Paul has opened up about his road to recovery after the vicious attack he suffered at the hands of his neighbor. After mainstream media wrongly described his injuries as “a few cuts and bruises here and there,” Sen. Paul is setting the record straight.
From The Hill: Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday called the recovery from a November attack outside of his Kentucky home “a living hell.”
“It was sort of a living hell for the first four or five weeks,” Paul told CBS News’s “Face the Nation.”
“Couldn’t get out of bed without assistance. Six broken ribs, damage to my lungs, two bouts of pneumonia,” he continued.
“It was really a tough go of it, but each day I feel a little bit better,” he said. “This last month I’ve been doing better.”
Paul’s neighbor of 17 years, Rene Boucher, pleaded not guilty to assaulting the senator.
