Rand Paul: 'Democrats Mistake Bill Clinton's Popularity'

On Tuesday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) continued his assault on the Clintons. Former President Bill Clinton was in his state on Tuesday campaigning for Kentucky Democratic senatorial hopeful Allison Grimes, to which Paul suggested perhaps that Democrats in his state were overestimating Clinton’s effectiveness as a political asset. 

“I think the Democrats mistake Bill Clinton’s popularity,” Paul said. “We have a lot of conservative Democrats in our state that go to church each week and really don’t approve of his behavior – what he’s done with women, sexual harassment in the workplace. A lot of Democrats in our state don’t approve of that kind of behavior.” 

Paul also suggested Grimes, who is a prospective opponent of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY), to return any money Clinton raised for her. 

“It doesn’t directly reflect on Hillary, but it is a little hard to escape the association and that he’s a fundraiser,” he added. “And I personally think Allison Grimes in our state who is running for Senate – I would return any money that was associated with Bill Clinton because I think he’s a bad role model for the workplace, for women’s rights, for all of that. And frankly I think they ought to be a little embarrassed for being associated with him.”
