Former resident's family member helped blogger access nursing home to photograph Sen. Cochran's wife, authorities sayMay 28, 2014
Investigators say that three more people, in addition to the political blogger originally arrested, have been charged as alleged conspirators in the unauthorized photographing of a U.S. Senator's wife in her nursing home room. One of the newly charged individuals has a connection to the continuing care retirement community involved and might have helped the blogger gain access, Mississippi authorities added.
The list of losers in this week's sensational story about photos secretly being shot of a U.S. Senator's Alzheimer's-afflicted wife, is large. A long-term care operator is just hoping the incident blows over — the sooner the better.
Visitation protocols at a Mississippi continuing care retirement community are under scrutiny after a blogger was jailed for allegedly taking an unauthorized photograph of the wife of U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (MS-R).
