Well, the long-ago victim is back in the news, having talked to the Washington Post's Greg Sargent about the new ad:
"Yes, he was in a secret society, yes, he mocked religion, yes, the whole Aqua Buddha thing happened," she said. "There was a different side to him at one time and he's pretending that it never existed. If he would just acknowledge it, it would all go away and it wouldn't matter anymore."
However, she also said that Conway's ad went too far in depicting college pranks as something frightening, and added that the topic wasn't consequential enough to drive the Senate race.
So far, most political analysts have viewed Conway's ad as having gone too far -- that it was perhaps even a sign of desperation. It will be interesting to see whether or not the reemergence of the accuser buttresses Conway's case.
During a candidates debate Sunday night in Louisville, the topic of the ad came up. As Politics Daily's Melinda Henneberger reported, Paul alleged that this was an attack on him as a Christian: "Those who stoop to the level of attacking a man's religious beliefs to gain higher office, I believe that they should remember that it does not profit a man to gain the world if he loses his soul in the process."
