Here’s the surest sign yet that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is both running for president and is a shameless weasel.
Paul is reportedly asking Kentucky lawmakers to file a bill clarifying a state law that prevents candidates from holding or running for two offices at the same time, allowing him to hedge his bet if he launches a 2016 bid.
“Yes, I am working on clarifying an ambiguous state law that Rand Paul believes is unconstitutional if it is interpreted to bar running for re-election to the Senate and for president at the same time,” state Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer (R) told The Washington Times on Monday.
Of course it’s unconstitutional. Rand Paul the libertarian is running for president, for pete’s sake. It may not have been seen as a matter of great importance or even unconstitutional last year or the year before, but today it is.
It’s his liberty(!) to hold or run for two offices at the same time.
Just remember that Rand is not all-in.
