LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- An aide to U.S. Sen. Rand Paul who spent years working as a radio shock jock has resigned because of some of his past comments, including one that President Abraham Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth's heart was "in the right place."

Paul, a Kentucky Republican and potential presidential candidate in 2016, told reporters on Monday that Jack Hunter's departure from his staff was a mutual decision.
