Newly filed congressional candidate arrested for aggravated assault

Boise Police arrested Cynthia Clinkingbeard, 58, Boise - a Democratic candidate for Congress in the 1st District - for aggravated assault on Friday night, after she entered a store and threatened workers there with a gun, the Idaho Statesman reports. Clinkingbeard, a physician whose medical license was revoked in 2005, filed last week to run against former professional football player and Lewiston native Jimmy Farris in the Democratic primary for a chance to take on GOP 1st District Congressman Raul Labrador.
