Rand Paul Blames 'Lack of Fathers' for Baltimore UnrestóBut His Own Son Was Just Arrested

Rand Paul Blames 'Lack of Fathers' for Baltimore Unrest—But His Own Son Was Just Arrested for Drunk Driving
Does the presidential aspirant blame himself?

As for root causes, Paul listed some ideas of his own. "There are so many things we can talk about," the senator said, "the breakdown of the family structure, the lack of fathers, the lack of a moral code in our society."

It's a pretty interesting explanation, given what happened with Paul's own son earlier this month. Young William Hilton Paul, 22, crashed his car into an occupied car after driving drunk, “the third time that William Paul has had a run-in with the law involving alcohol.” Perhaps the Senator shouldn't throw rocks while living in a glass house?

He should STFU and address his own family issues before talking about others.

The "speck in your brother's eye. . .the plank in your own. . ." and all that jazz.
