Rene Boucher, 59, told neighbor Rand Paul that he hadn't been able to sell his house for ten years because of the woodland behind Paul's property
The trees apparently block Boucher's views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated community in Bowling Green, KY
DailyMail.com can reveal the two men's lots houses are about 250ft apart, separated by a lawn rather than a wall or fence
Property records confirm Boucher has indeed put his house on the market five times over the past decade without success
Boucher has marketed the property as high as $849,500 but tax assessors say the 7,500 sq ft, two-story home is actually worth $740,000
'Rand mowed his own yard. It was always presentable. That's a very lame excuse if that's the one they are choosing to use,' neighbor Dan Renshaw, 70, said
Boycher's lawyer Matt Baker insists there is no political element to the attack and has described the incident as a 'property dispute'
