Rand Paul Hits A New Low By Begging People On The Internet For Dirt On Hillary Clinton


Rand Paul has been promising a mystery Hillary Clinton scandal that he can’t deliver, so the Kentucky senator is begging his supporters on the Internet to send him their dirt on Clinton.

Politico reported:

Rand Paul is soliciting information regarding the Clinton Foundation’s acceptance of contributions from foreign governments in his latest move to cast doubt on the former secretary of state’s candidacy.

“Do you have additional information about the Clinton Foundation accepting foreign contributions?” a page on Paul’s campaign website reads. Users can then enter their first and last names, along with their ZIP code, email address and the information they have. The form shared by Paul on Sunday via Twitter did not appear to include a secure HTTPS protocol.

In his speeches, he has promised some mystery scandal that will destroy Hillary Clinton’s campaign. When pressed for details, Paul said nothing. The begging for dirt on Hillary Clinton on his campaign website suggested that he is open to any crazy unsubstantiated right-wing conspiracy theory.

It is impossible to take a presidential candidate seriously who promises a big scandal but has to ask his supporters to dig something up.

Sen. Paul is not hanging all of his hopes on a soon to be released book by a former Bush speechwriting consultant and right-wing media contributor that turns the Clinton Foundation into the new Republican boogeyman that will sink her campaign.

Paul’s quest for dirt on Clinton is not only a sign of the Democratic frontrunner’s strength, but also his own desperation. For a brief time last year, it looked like Rand Paul could be a top-tier Republican presidential candidate, but Paul has been quickly pushed to the second tier behind Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and Marco Rubio. Paul is competing with Sen. Ted Cruz and possibly Mike Huckabee to be the candidate that joins the top of the Republican field.

Just like Paul’s attempt to find dirt on Clinton, the Republican attempt to turn the Clinton Foundation into the new Whitewater won’t work. The Republican bag of tricks is quickly emptying, as candidates like Rand Paul are flailing about while trying to stop Hillary Clinton.
