Former congressional candidate gets probation for gun threats

Posted on August 6, 2012

BOISE -- The former congressional candidate accused of threatening three people at a Staples store with a handgun earlier this year was sentenced to five years probation today.

Cynthia Clinkingbeard is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. As part of a plea deal, she pleaded guilty to one of the three charges against her. In turn, prosecutors dropped two additional aggravated assault charges, as well an enhancement charge for use of a deadly weapon.

Prosecutors say Clinkingbeard came into the Staples store at Chinden Boulevard and Eagle Road on the night of March 16 to get some posters for her campaign. She was escorted to the copy center at the back of the store and began making strange comments to three employees about religion and politics. She then told the employees they were going to meet God. A short time later she brandished a 9mm handgun while waiting for a ride near the front of the store. She pointed at a manager's back and threatened to "cap him."

As part of her probation she is not allowed to have a weapon of any kind, she must have a court approved guardian and will be subject to review hearings.

Clinkingbeard, a former physician and professor, lost to Jimmy Farris in the Democratic primary in May.

She previously taught classes at College of Western Idaho and Boise State University, but was let go by both schools.

She should be in jail and I hope she never gets to own a firearm again.

She'll probably get hired by Colombia to teach ethics.

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
