Rand Paul 'targeted multiple times' as cops confirm white substance sent to senator is 'nontoxic'

SENATOR Rand Paul was sent a "non-toxic" white powder, cops have confirmed.

The Republican, who claims he has been targeted multiple times, received a mysterious package at his home in Kentucky on Monday.

Investigators examined the package and an initial analysis concluded the substance was non-toxic, WDRB reports.

Warren County Sheriff's office said the package will be examined further.

The Senator received a powder-filled letter and a photograph showing a rifle pointing at his head yesterday.

He tweeted: "I take these threats immensely seriously. I have been targeted multiple times now, it is reprehensible that Twitter allows C-list celebrities to advocate for violence against me and my family."

Hours before receiving the package, 1980s singer Richard Marx tweeted: "I’ll say it again: If I ever meet Rand Paul’s neighbor I’m going to hug him and buy him as many drinks as he can consume."

In the image, Paul is wearing a neck brace and the caption underneath states: "I'll finish what your neighbor started you motherf****r."

Paul, who is running for a third Senate term, was assaulted by his neighbor Rene Boucher in 2017.

The attack left the lawmaker with five broken ribs and Boucher eventually pled guilty to assaulting a Congressmember.

In April last year, the Senator and his wife Kelley were surrounded by a group of people while heading back to their hotel room after the Republican National Convention.

Earlier this week, Paul revealed he will not be getting the Covid-19 vaccine.

He claims he has natural immunity following his battle with the virus over 12 months ago.

The Senator also clashed with Joe Biden’s top coronavirus chief Dr. Anthony Fauci over mask-wearing.

Paul said the infectious disease expert "lies" when he says masks make a difference.

The Senator previously branded the scientist a "little dictator" and accused him of "acting like an ignoramus every day of the week".
