Very Mean Blogger

From the New York Daily News:
A Mississippi political blogger sneaked into the nursing home of a U.S. Senator's wife and took photos of the bedridden woman so he could post them on his website, police said.
Clayton Thomas Kelly trespassed into the nursing home room of Rose Cochran, wife of Republican Senator Thad Cochran, last month. The 28-year-old was arrested Friday and charged with exploiting a vulnerable adult, The Clarion-Ledger reported.
Rose Cochran has lived at St. Catherine's Village in Madison, Miss., since 2000. She suffers from dementia.
Cochran campaign sources said Kelly posted a video slamming the senator — which included the photos of Rose Cochran — to his blog on April 26. That video was taken down a few hours later.
Thad Cochran was first elected to the Senate in 1978 and faces re-election this year. He's been challenged in the state's Republican primary by Tea Party-endorsed attorney Chris McDaniel.
Kelly has posted online about his support of McDaniel and opposition to Cochran many times, the newspaper reported. He runs a blog, YouTube channel and other social media accounts.

So, you have a Tea Party activitist who acts like a complete idiot.  Way to give the Tea Party a black eye, you idiot.
Why you would post pictures of a old lady in a nursing home is beyond me.
Hope he goes to jail for at least a few days.
