FRANKFORT, Ky. -- U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul's campaign acknowledged Friday that his in-laws had benefited from federal farm subsidies that he has been criticizing in stump speeches.
The revelation brought accusations of hypocrisy from his opponent's camp.
Paul, a tea party-backed Republican, has been critical of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's farm subsidy program even though his father-in-law received more than $10,000 in payments over 12 years.
What? Exactly what hypocrisy is there here?
IS Rand Paul's Father-In-Law running for Senate? NO.
Is Rand wanting to exempt Rand Paul's Father-In-Law from subsidy cuts? NO.
This is another desperate attempt by Rand's opponents. You can do better. Debate the issues relevant to voters instead of looking for mud to throw, and embarrassing yourself.
