Why Did Cochran Wait Nearly Three Weeks to Bring Break-In Info to Police?
Breitbart ^ | 19 May 2014 | Matthew Boyle

The personal attorney for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) offered little explanation late Monday for why nearly three weeks elapsed between when Cochran's campaign initially learned a crazed blogger had broken into his wife's residence and when he went to the police with information about the incident, leading to the blogger's arrest Friday.

“In responding to any inquiries about this legal matter, we are conscious of preserving the confidentiality of attorney client relationship,” Cochran’s attorney Don Clark said in an emailed statement to Breitbart News in response to a story in The Hill.

He continued:

That said, I can tell you that once Senator Cochran became aware of the video that contained an image of his wife, he asked me and our firm to represent him in pursuing whatever remedies he and his family might have. As we would in any similar situation, we gathered appropriated background information on his behalf and looked at his options for both civil and criminal remedies. That resulted ultimately in our contacting the appropriate law enforcement authorities on his behalf and turning this matter over to them. They have conducted their own investigation and have taken whatever actions they deemed appropriate. We have made it clear that we will continue to cooperate with them on Senator Cochran’s behalf in any that we can.

Madison, Mississippi, police said in a press release that they received information about the blogger, Clayton Kelly, 28, on Thursday, May 15. Clark has said the information he provided police led to the arrest, and The Hill confirmed Clark provided the information to police Thursday.

Jordan Russell, a spokesman for Cochran, told The Hill the campaign learned about the break-in on April 26, when Kelly published a video that included a photo of Rose Cochran in her residence at a retirement home online.

The odd factor in this story is that the wife has been in the nursing home since 2000 (if I read that right)...fourteen years. He sold his house (the DC property) at least ten years ago. Doesn’t appear to own anything in Mississippi at all (even the cabin deal appears to have been sold or maybe never even existed). If you ask me....he’s kinda bogus. He might know the governor, and tell you twenty things about the state, but he’s there representing Washington DC....NOT Mississippi.
