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.
Kelly is accused of sneaking into St. Catherine’s Village in Madison, where Rose Cochran has resided since 2000, suffering from progressive dementia and now bedridden.
Cochran on Saturday issued a statement: “I have been fortunate to have a wonderful family, and like so many families, we are deeply affected by my wife’s serious, long-term illness, that we consider to be a very private family matter. We will continue doing everything we can to protect my wife’s safety and security.”
Donald Clark, attorney for Sen. and Rose Cochran, said the Cochrans’ “privacy and dignity have been violated.”
“We became aware of an unauthorized picture, posted on the internet, of Mrs. Cochran, taken literally in her room by her bedside at St. Catherine’s,” Clark said. “Sen. Cochran retained my law firm on this matter, and we looked at various legal options. We notified the proper authorities, which in this case is the city of Madison Police Department.”
Clark said St. Catherine’s is also conducting an internal investigation.

Speaking purely from a personal viewpoint, and if such a thing happened to mine own, I would be quite happy to apply somewhere around four pounds of pressure.

  1. I assume that would be the Pearl Assurance company, referred to in the post?

  2. watch it mike you know what they’ll say if you start saying some people deserve to be shot. (even if they do)

  3. Kelly is a Republican Party thug, who was pushing a Republican tea party type

    This is his audience ( from a Washington Post blog )

    Wow – Sen. Cochran cares more about his political career than his wife.
    He COULD be employed in a job closer to her, but instead flies off to D.C. –
    leaving his wife in a nursing home for 14 years!
