WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's office is unable to communicate with constituents during the federal government shutdown, according to a message on Paul's Senate website.
Kentuckians who visit Paul's website and proceed to click on the tab marked "Contact" are greeted with a message that the phones in Paul's Kentucky and Washington office "will not be monitored regularly until the shutdown has ended."
Filling out and submitting a contact request by email on the senator's website results in a form reply email with the same message.
"Responses to correspondence will be delayed until normal government operations resume," the message reads.
