This summer, Sen. Rand Paul was at a GOP congressional baseball team practice when a man opened fire. He escaped injury then, but now we’ve learned that five of his ribs were broken when he was allegedly assaulted by a neighbor at his home in Kentucky.
It’s nice that journalists want to get the news out, but The Daily Beast’s Sam Stein probably should have redacted Paul’s home address from his Twitter post Monday — the senator’s been through enough without anyone else getting any ideas.
maybe redact Paul's home address…

At least he sent his sincere apologies.
No worries: I'm sure anyone else who wants to assault him will unsee the first one. https://t.co/yObexuPhxm

Our corrupt media continues to fail at the basics of journalism, but have you noticed ONLY when a Republican’s safety is at stake. https://t.co/Om3EMnmfqc
