Progress Kentucky official resigns (Senator McConnell situation)
The Politico ^ | April 11, 2013 | Kevin Robillard

Pressure is growing Thursday afternoon on a liberal super PAC in Kentucky accused of surreptitiously recording a strategy session held by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Jacob Conway, the Jefferson County Democratic Party’s executive committee member who originally accused Progress Kentucky of making the recording, told NBC News he was on his way to talk to the FBI about the allegations. And the group’s treasurer confirmed he had quit his position after the audio was published.

“At this time based on advice of both friends and counsel, I will be not be making a public statement available until everything has been reviewed by an attorney at this time,” Douglas L. Davis told NBC News. “I have resigned my position as treasurer and did not and do not condone any allegations of illegal activity that might have taken place.”

Conway told Louisville’s NPR affiliate earlier Thursday that two Progress Kentucky employees bragged to him about recording the meeting through a door in McConnell’s office.

Conway said Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison told him they snuck into McConnell’s freshly-opened campaign office February 2, not long after McConnell held an open house for GOP activists and media members. They heard the meeting going on through a closed door and recorded it.....

If true, I wonder how trespassing / illegal entry laws apply to one's office space in a public building. Surely a critter's office is no less private than the west wing is.

If there is no jail time for breaking and entering this will prove to me again how corrupted our government actually is. It will just strengthen my conviction that our government is no longer a government by the people but instead by the corrupt.

Mitch is bigger than anyone thought.

Any catcalls of “turtleneck” out there, now?

I like this. Somebody is turning the thumbscrews. The rats have independently weaved webs of lies, apparently in a panic, before they had a chance to get their stories lined up, and have ended up with a hopeless tangle. Look for more rats to bail soon.

...”Look for more rats to bail soon.”

Pffft. IMO, they’ll scatter two or three shiny objects over here and over there and in two weeks this will be a nothingburger. And if they bail (whatever that means, they are undoubtedly going to be well paid) not only are there plenty more where they came from, but these two/few will lay low and find themselves doing something else in a few years. To the left, these guys are heroes.

Of course they are, but they may fear the possibility that an honest FBI crew and US attorney get involved in the investigation. I know the chances are slim with Holder in charge, but the mice may not want to risk being the token foil, if Senate Minority Leader McConnell demands one. ...Like in National Treasure: "Somebody has to go to jail, Ben."

Mitch wields weight in his state.

The demonic-rats picked the wrong man to mess with.

Meanwhile, the government has no effect response to the crises in North Korea, and war looms...

An audio analyst (maybe even a layperson) could tell immediately if a recording was made through a closed door.

They know who did it and the culprits are just trying to figure out what lies they can get away with and what low level staffer (Craig Livingstone wanna be) they can pin it on.

Forgive my pessimism, but this will drift off into the void, IMHO. “We will be reviewing out internal procedures to ensure this unfortunate event does not happen again.”

There are NO “slim chances” with this administration. There are only gross, ham-handed bludgeon moves incrementally moving towards the deliberate destruction of everything we value. The left will demand the rings of Saturn and settle for the magnetic field of Mars. Then they will bring up the issue again, and move the ball further down into the next ring of hell.

Again, please forgive my pessimism, but this ship has sailed.

“I have resigned my position as treasurer and did not and do not condone any allegations of illegal activity that might have taken place.”

Love this. Read it carefully. He doesn't condone the allegations. Someone needs to ask him if that means he condones the illegal activity.
