JACKSON, Miss. – State Senator Chris McDaniel is firing back at the Thad Cochran Campaign after Clayton Kelly was charged with taking photos of Cochran’s bedridden wife at a Madison nursing home three weeks ago. McDaniel, in his first lengthy interview after that incident on the Paul Gallo Show, questions why it took three weeks for Cochran to file charges against Kelly.
“If someone were to break into or come into or acquire a picture of my mom or my wife in nursing home. I don’t wait three weeks to file charges. I don’t file till two weeks from the primary date to file charges. I file charges that day,” said McDaniel. “If there is a picture that exists, that picture is the evidence. No further investigation is required. You take it to the police and file the charges.”
