Dem Congressional Candidate Arrested on Aggravated Assault Charges

Democrat Congressional Candidate Cynthia Clinkingbeard was arrested on Friday after she walked into a store and threatened to shoot up the place.

Cynthia Clinkingbeard made an unannounced campaign stop this week in Boise.

The Idaho Statesman reported:

Boise Police arrested Cynthia Clinkingbeard, 58, Boise, on Friday after she reportedly walked into a store at Eagle Road and Chinden Boulevard and threatened employees with a gun.

The website of the Idaho Secretary of State lists Clinkingbeard as a Democratic candidate in the May 15 primary race for the First District congressional seat. Clinkingbeard was a doctor specializing in edocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, until the State of Idaho Board of Medicine revoked her license in 2005.

On Friday, police were called at 9:15 p.m. by employees of the store who told dispatchers a woman, later identified as Clinkingbeard, had walked into the store, made strange, threatening remarks to three employees before pulling out a handgun.

The caller told dispatchers Clinkingbeard then left the store, continuing to make threats, and drove off in a car.

JWF has more on Cynthia’s record.

She sounds like a fine Democrat.
