Gun-waving charges against Missouri U.S. Senate candidate’s wife amended.
Not Holding guns in sight on their property when a mob breaks down a gate to enter their closed neighborhood. No, gun-waving, like the mad man and woman they are!
A special prosecutor said Tuesday he has amended the charges against a St. Louis woman who waved a gun at racial injustice protesters last summer, and he’ll decide soon if he’ll amend charges against her husband.
Mark and Patricia McCloskey were indicted by a grand jury in October on felony charges of unlawful use of a weapon and evidence tampering. Special Prosecutor Richard Callahan said in a statement that he filed a new indictment on Monday that would give jurors the alternative of convicting Patricia McCloskey of misdemeanor harassment instead of the weapons charge. Under that alternative, the evidence tampering count would be dropped.
Why the wife and not the husband?
Because the husband is running in the Republican Senate primary, duh!
(Part I of what is no doubt destined to be a long series unless the guy stops running for political office as part of a plea deal.)
