Does this mean Rand Paul’s threat of legal action against GQ has a sound basis? The woman at the center of the story about Rand Paul’s college indiscretions now says that he did not kidnap her “in a legal sense,” and that he did not force her to do drugs. “The whole thing has been blown out of proportion,” she tells Greg Sargent. “I went along because they were my friends. There was an implicit degree of cooperation in the whole thing. I was being hazed.” She maintains that she was taken to a room while blindfolded and told to smoke marijuana, but that “he did not force me physically in any way.” She also maintains that they “took me out to this creek and made me worship Aqua Buddha,” and she says the whole thing was so “weird” that she cut off relations with Paul and his friends afterwards.
