Rand Paul’s Senate Patriot Act “Filibuster” Is A Fake And A Fraud

rand paul fake patriot act filibuster

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) is trying to pull a fast one on the American people by claiming that he is filibustering the Patriot Act when he isn’t actually filibustering.

Harry Reid’s Communications Director Adam Jentleson tweeted:

Paul isn’t filibustering because he isn’t delaying anything.

The Senate is in the midst of 30 hours of debate on the Patriot Act. The Senate vote is not scheduled until one hour after the Senate convenes tomorrow. Rand Paul can stand on the Senate floor and talk until midnight, and it won’t make a bit of difference. Paul would have to speak today and into tomorrow. Sen. Paul will have to keep speaking through the scheduled time of the vote tomorrow for his speech to be considered a filibuster.

What Paul is doing is trying to fool people into believing that he is filibustering. Sen. Paul is using the Senate floor as presidential campaign infomercial. The senator from Kentucky is trying to revive his flatlining presidential campaign with a publicity stunt.

The only reason that Paul would start this speech on Wednesday afternoon is to get some free publicity for his presidential candidacy. Some may be tricked by Paul’s fake stand, but the odds are that Paul isn’t serious about stopping the Patriot Act, and his fake filibuster will end well before Thursday’s scheduled vote.

Rand Paul’s presidential campaign is claiming that their candidate is filibustering:

What Paul is doing on the Senate floor currently is not a filibuster. To call his speech a filibuster is a disingenuous​ act of fraud.
