(CNN) -- Tayna Fogle sat just behind Sen. Rand Paul, nodding her head and listening as he pressed the case with Kentucky state senators to restore felon voting rights.

"Kids do make mistakes. White kids make mistakes. Black kids make mistakes. Brown kids make mistakes," Paul told the Kentucky state Senate committee considering a constitutional amendment to restore the voting rights of some felons on Wednesday. "But when you look at the prison population, three out of the four people in prison are black or brown."

Fogle whispered: "Good for you. I'm glad someone is speaking up."

She felt as if he was narrating her life.

Rand is headlining almost every day

Here's another positive article on Rand, the NAACP and economic freedom zones:

There are some excellent pro-Paul comments in feedback section as well. Even from Dems and Independents.

I like that Rand uses actions as much as words; rare for a politician in this day and age.

He doesn't just talk about it, he stands up and does it. Quite admirable.

Like him or not

One things for sure, Rand is doing a great job of keeping his name in headlines every day.

Title Change?

Would it be more accurate to say "Rand Paul fights for [ex-]felon voting rights - CNN video"?

Oh, Shit

better pull out an black guy to tell the sheep that RP's approach is to "aligned with democrats" and "won't play well in a republican primary".

Looks to me like a nice chess move by Rand (and of course he's also right about the issue too! Double win)
