Seconds of video turned race, may put blogger in prison

Clayton Thomas Kelly of Pearl shot a few seconds of video with his phone in a Madison nursing home on Easter Sunday 2014 that altered a U.S. Senate race, gained him national notoriety and may earn him a prison cell, depending on the outcome of his trial that starts this week.

Kelly, now 29, was a computer customer service engineer who had gotten heavily into Libertarian politics. He started a “Constitutional Clayton” online blog and wanted to make a name for it with a juicy political story. He did.
