Holy crap! Breaking news out of Jackson: Mark Mayfield, the leader of the Central Mississippi Tea Party, has been found dead of a gunshot wound in his home in Ridgeland. A suicide note was found on the scene.
You remember Mayfield from his involvement in the "Constitutional Clayton" scandal involving supporters of state Sen. Chris McDaniel breaking into a nursing home to photograph U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran's (R-MS) invalid wife.
Obviously, there is more to come.
