Crazy in Mississippi: Blogger invades nursing home of Thad Cochran’s wife

[Ed. – Here’s your sign, moron.]

According to recently breaking reports, blogger Clayton Thomas Kelly of Mississippi crossed all bounds of propriety by entering the nursing home room of the wife of Senator Thad Cochran (R-Mississippi) and photographing her for use in a political story.

A Pearl man who runs a political blog is accused of sneaking into a nursing home where U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s wife is bedridden and photographing her, then posting the image in a video political “hit piece” on the internet.

Madison Police arrested Clayton Thomas Kelly, 28, of Pearl on Friday night on a charge of exploitation of a vulnerable adult. He’s being held on a $100,000 bond. …

It is important to note at this point that if there is no evidence suggesting that Kelly is in any way involved with the campaign of Chris McDaniel, currently in a heated primary battle with Senator Cochran, this shouldn’t affect the race. …

But is there more to the story? In an update from the Clarion-Ledger, Senator Cochran’s camp is raising an interesting question.

U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s campaign is questioning how Chris McDaniel’s campaign manager, state Sen. Melanie Sojourner, apparently knew about Clayton Kelly’s arrest before news of him allegedly sneaking into Rose Cochran’s nursing home room and taking photos broke.
