Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

The random article for Wednesday, 5 June 2024 is Mark McCloskey.

Mark Thomas McCloskey is an American former personal injury lawyer practicing in St. Louis, Missouri, who attracted national attention in 2020 after he and his wife Patricia brandished firearms at protestors who walked past their house on a private street.

The couple was charged with unlawful use of a weapon, a class E felony; they bargained down and pleaded guilty to misdemeanors and were subsequently pardoned by Missouri Governor Mike Parson. In February 2022, McCloskey's law license was suspended indefinitely, but the suspension was stayed while he serves one year of probation.

In 2022, McCloskey ran for a United States Senate seat in Missouri, but he lost the Republican primary to Eric Schmitt.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 00:19 UTC on Wednesday, 5 June 2024.
