MADISON, Miss. (WTVA/WLBT) — A judge declined to lower the $100,000 bond for a blogger at the center of a political storm less than three weeks before the GOP primary for U.S. Senate.
Law enforcement accuses Clayton Kelly of taking an unauthorized photo of Senator Thad Cochran's wife in an assisted living facility and using it in a video attacking the senator.
Kelly is charged with exploiting a vulnerable adult.
Cochran is running for re-election in the primary against state Senator Chris McDaniel, who denies having any involvement with Kelly.
