Controversial Aide Resigns from Paul's Office

The aide to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) with a pro-Confederate past has resigned from the senator's office, USA Today reports.

Said new media director Jack Hunter: "I've long been a conservative, and years go, a much more politically incorrect (and campy) one. But there's a significant difference between being politically incorrect and racist. I've also become far more libertarian over the years, a philosophy that encourages a more tolerant world view, through the lens of which I know look back on some of my older comments with embarrassment."

Paul told an audience in Louisville that Hunter had become a "distraction," the Louisville Courier-Journal reports.
