Kentucky U.S. Senate candidate Rand Paul says, “I will categorically deny that I ever kidnapped anyone or forced someone to use drugs.” Paul is responding to charges in a GQ article in which a woman claimed to be the victim of this behavior.

The woman, who was granted anonymity because GQ says she is a clinical psychologist, alleged that the young Paul and his society mate were smoking marijuana and tried to force the girl to do the same.

Paul told [Neil] Cavuto, “I’m not really going to try to go back 27 years and try to remember everything,” adding, “I don’t think politicians should have to answer for something they did 27 years ago.”

According to GQ, when the woman refused the pot, the two men took her down to a creek and made her bow down to some kind of “Aqua Buddha,” though she makes clear that she was never hurt at any time, telling the magazine reporter, “They were messing with my mind. It was some kind of joke.”

On the “Aqua Buddha” charges, Paul says:

Please spare us the details. You know they also have pictures of me with an alien. They’re also now saying I could have been abducted by aliens at one point in my college career. [It’s unclear whether Paul is trying to make a National Enquirer joke here]. I mean this stuff is just outrageous and ridiculous. No I was never involved with kidnapping. No I was never involved with forcibly drugging people.
