Rand Paul Threatening Legal Action Against GQ For Kidnap/Pot Story

Posted by | August 9, 2010 18:48 | Filed under: Top Stories

Greg Sargent is reporting that Rand Paul may respond to charges in a new GQ piece with a lawsuit.

“We are investigating all our options — including legal ones,” Rand Paul spokesman Jesse Benton emails [Sargent]. “We will not tolerate drive by Journalism by a writer with a leftist agenda.”

This is the most direct denial, or response, yet from the Paul campaign to the allegations in the article, though the campaign has not yet said flat out that the allegations are false.

About the author of the article, Sargent notes:

Jason Zengerle, is a longtime writer for The New Republic, and few would mistake him as a “leftist,” though that’s probably how he’s seen by conservative Republicans.
