Senator Paul Blames Twitter, Richard Marx For Threat

Senate Health Committee Hears Testimony From Federal Officials On Efforts To Combat COVID-19

Senator Rand Paul is blaming social media for a threat against him. 

A suspicious package containing a white powder and an envelope with a threat arrived at Senator Paul's Bowling Green home on Monday.  Paul says Twitter allowing "C-list celebrities to encourage violence" against him and his family led to the threat.

Earlier this week, 1980s pop star Richard Marx tweeted that if he ever met the Senator's neighbor who broke his ribs in a 2017 property dispute, Marx would "hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume."
