Paul Spokesman Resigns Amid Controversy

The campaign spokesman for Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul
reportedly resigned Thursday evening amid a controversy over a social networking Web page that he maintained.

Liberal blogs first posted allegations that Christopher Hightower had racist remarks and pictures on his Web page. Hightower originally disavowed any connection to the Web page; hours later, Paul’s campaign manager announced that Hightower had stepped down.

The controversy has the potential to derail the momentum Paul had been gaining from his strong polling numbers and his powerful Internet-based fundraising machine, which brought in over $230,000 in a single day this week.
