Clayton Kelly, a supporter of Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel, was arrested Thursday on charges of exploitation of a vulnerable adult.
"On April 26 Kelly posted a YouTube video “hit piece” containing the image of Cochran in the nursing home."
These are some sick mofo's, y'all.

Interesting update at the Clarion-Ledger: "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.
Cochran campaign spokesman Jordan Russell said Sojourner left a voice mail message for Cochran campaign manager Kirk Sims at about 7:45 a.m. Saturday, offering condolences over Kelly's alleged actions and assurance McDaniel's campaign doesn't condone it. Russell said Sojourner indicated she had been concerned over the incident since Friday night."
UPDATE below the fold:
Thu May 22, 2014 at 11:14 AM PT: Mississippi Tea Party Vice Chairman arrested in connection with the case.
"Also, attorney Kevin Camp, who represents Clayton Kelly, said two more arrests either have been or will be made in addition to Mayfield. All three are expected to face conspiracy charges."
