"Aqua Buddha" is Back Again

Oct 21, 2011

A year ago, “Aqua Buddha” made national headlines after Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and current Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway ran ads focusing on allegations that his opponent, eventual U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, was part of a group at Baylor University that worshipped a god called “Aqua Buddha.” The term has returned in this year’s election cycle, with the Republicans bringing it back. Republican attorney general candidate Todd P’Pool, who is running against Conway in this year’s general election, started airing a statewide ad Tuesday reminding voters that Conway attacked Paul with “Aqua Buddha.”
