MS elected official's car parked in handicap space without proper decal

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Mississippi elected official's car is found parked in a handicapped zone without a handicapped sticker.

His wife says the vehicle was right where it was supposed to be. These pictures come to us from the Jackson Jambalaya blog. They show the vehicle of Canton Democrat Ed Blackmon, a member of the State House of Representatives.

Blackmon's BMW was found parked in a handicapped space Friday in the parking lot of Bravo Restaurant in Jackson. The car did not have any visible handicapped sticker or tag.

Former State Senator Barbara Blackmon, says she was driving her husband's vehicle and does have a handicapped parking permit. She emailed pictures of what she says is her handicapped decal, but refused an on camera interview and our request to shoot video of the decal.

Mrs. Blackmon says the decal was in the vehicle and must have fallen off the rearview mirror.
