Conservative Blogger To Be Released From Jail On Bond


Conservative political blogger “Constitutional” Clayton Kelly will be released from jail on a bond of $75,000, the Clarion Ledger reported on Thursday.

Kelly is being released on Thursday.

The bond for Kelly, who has been at the center of an ongoing investigation in connection with the photographing of Sen. Thad Cochran’s (R-MS) wife to use her image in an anti-Cochran video, was previously set at $200,000 but Kelly’s lawyer appealed the decision.

Kelly is one of four men who have been arrested in connection to taking Rose Cochran’s picture. He and the other three men are all supporters of Cochran’s primary challenger, state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-MS).

The primary is on June 3.
