Senator Rand Paul said he was left in ‘living hell’ after his neighbor allegedly attacked him outside his Kentucky home in November.

The Kentucky Republican told CBS News’ Face the Nation on Sunday for four or five weeks after Rene Boucher allegedly tackled him outside his home in Bowling Green and left him with six broken ribs, cuts on his face, fluid buildup in his chest he was in a ‘living hell.’

‘Couldn’t get out of bed without assistance, six broken ribs, damage to my lungs, two bouts of pneumonia,’ Paul said, detailing his agony.

‘It was a really tough go of it. But each day I feel a little bit better. This last month I’ve been doing better.’

Boucher has been charged with assault in the November 3 attack at Paul’s home, and pleaded not guilty. He was accused of tackling him from behind while the failed GOP presidential candidate was mowing his lawn.

His attorney told CBS in November the attack wasn’t politically motivated at all, describing it instead as a ‘very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial.’

The 59-year-old, though, says the attack happened after years of frustration due to being unable to sell his $740,000 home. He said he told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn’t been able to sell the house for ten years because the congressman’s trees were ‘in the way’.

    Oh boo woo. So the neighbor “allegedly” attacked him. And was the Senator forced to use Obummer-care as his health provider? I think not. Grow up little boy, smell the roses and be forced to use the same health care system as you people have tried to ram down the American people’s throats.
