JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Ridgeland police chief Jimmy Houston confirms that Attorney Mark Mayfield has been found dead at his home in the Bridgewater subdivision.

We're told he was found in his garage with a gunshot wound.

It is being investigated as a suicide.

In May, 57-year-old Mayfield was arrested and charged with conspiracy in relation to a political scandal.

The 28-year-old blogger, Clayton Kelly, allegedly went into a nursing home and photographed the bedridden wife of Republican U.S. Senator Thad Cochran without permission and posted an image online as part of an anti-Cochran video.

It's not clear the exact role that Mayfield played in obtaining or spreading the photo.

Mayfield was a Board member of the Central MS Tea Party.

Governor Phil Bryant has sent out a statement about the incident: "Deborah and I are saddened to hear of the loss of Mark Mayfield. He was a long-time friend, and he will be missed. Our prayers go out to his family in this tragic moment."

We'll be updating this story as soon as we receive any new details.

This whole situation is looking like one messed-up clusterbuck (to bowdlerize). Of course, those Deep South states are notoriously corrupt, so I guess it should not surprise me as much as it does.
"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)

Yep! Those deep South states are notoriously corrupt but none of them can hold a candle to New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, or a dozen others I could name!
