Another staffer leaves Paul's Senate campaign

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Another Rand Paul campaign staffer has
resigned.
Christi Gillespie sent a statement to reporters on Thursday,
saying she had also switched her party affiliation from Republican
to Libertarian.
Gillespie said she felt it "morally necessary" to resign
because Paul has prohibited campaign staffers and his supporters
from attacking the Republican Party or GOP Sen. Mitch McConnell.
Campaign manager David Adams confirmed Gillespie's resignation
on Thursday.
Another campaign staffer, Christopher Hightower, had resigned in
mid-December after a Kentucky political blog showed racist images
that purportedly were posted on Hightower's MySpace page.
Hightower denied any connection to the racist images. He said he
resigned because he feared the controversy might negatively affect
Paul.
