Grifters Gotta Grift
Today, we go Back to the Multiverse (this would be a catchy movie title!) with Schrödinger’s Senator, the physics paradox known in this dimension as Rand Paul, where anything is possible including being elected in the 2016 Goat Rodeo and being elected to the Senate or both or neither can happen at the same time or never or…
- Republican Sen. Rand Paul and his wife had not bought stock in an individual company in at least 10 years before Kelley Paul purchased shares of the drug company Gilead Sciences in early 2020.
- That purchase was made one day after the first clinical trial began for Gilead’s remdesivir as a treatment for Covid-19, records show.
- The Kentucky senator disclosed his wife’s purchase on Wednesday, more than 16 months after the legal deadline for such disclosures by a member of Congress.
- Paul sits on the Senate health committee, which was briefed on the coronavirus threat a month before his wife purchased the Gilead shares.
What a weird series of coinkydinks!
We know that self-certified asshole Rand Paul named himself after selfish asshole Ayn Rand, and has practiced a kind of fake Libertarianism for years, and has pulled himself up by his father’s bootstraps. There are a thousand reasons why Rand Paul needs to be investigated, and he just gave the world another one.
This breaking news pretty much confirms what we all knew: Rand Paul is a crook and pretty stupid to boot.
