Kentucky Democrat Names Men Who He Says Secretly Taped McConnell
Breitbart TV ^ | 4/11/13

Posted on 04/11/2013 5:33:03 PM PDT by markomalley

FOX NEWS: Jacob Conway, who is on the committee of Kentucky’s Jefferson County Democratic Party, revealed to Megyn Kelly moments ago that members of the liberal activist group Progress Kentucky bragged to him that they had made a secret recordings of a meeting held by Senator Mitch McConnell (R) without his consent.

Earlier this week, tapes were released of McConnell and his aides discussing challengers in the upcoming election, particularly actress Ashley Judd. The FBI is now investigating the incident.

According to Conway, Progress Kentucky’s Sean Riley and Curtis Morrison were in the hallway of McConnell’s campaign headquarters after an event ended, when they overheard a conversation they considered offensive, and decided to record it.

Its only illegal if you aren’t a democrat. For example that young guy who exposed all those activities at Planned Parenthood and Acorn.

I’m of two minds on this. On one hand I think every moment of a politicians life should be recorded simply on general principle. On the other hand if these creeps did indeed violate some State or Federal law I hope they get the book thrown at them.

I'm sure Atty Gen WithHolder has a squad of elite prosecutors on the case already.

He must think he’s an “elderly couple” driving through Florida and happened to record a cell phone call, huh?

The concept of single party consent to recording a conversation implies that at least one participant of a conversation consents to being recorded. James O'Keefe was that one party in all of his recordings, since he was an active particpant in the conversation. None of the participants in the conversation in Mitch McConnell's office gave their consent. The people doing the recording were not part of the conversation.

Does that clear that up?

I’m wondering if there’s a security video which shows the people standing outside the door doing the recording at the time in question.

It's absolutely a violation of the law.

If what they did isn't illegal, Anthony Pellicano's lawyer needs to file a writ of habeas corpus yesterday.

Sounds like the Dem realizes a Federal rap is a real possibility including complicity, so he rats them out. Smart move.

Sorry, I missed that way of thinking . . . You're right . . . even though he's a worthless RINO, they're already dragging him across the coals. He's eaves dropped on a gorgeous airhead . . . Hanging's too good.

Think about it.

Invitation only opening at secure private campaign HQ. Staff sweeps of building sending visitors home or to 1st floor lobby.

According to KYDNC two political hacks accidently overhear staff meeting while strolling innocently down a hallway of a private building that they were not invited to, they then hit the record button.

Priceless Federal Felony

Sounds like there might be some collusion going on if these people got ratted out that quickly.

That was the initial Democrat response/excuse in the Florida case. They said 'some couple' just happened to dial into it on their police scanner.

or some such

It didn't stand up in court ~ and all the people in the 'daisy chain of custody' for that recording ended up paying damages and fines through the nose.

The Democrats are just now realizing that somebody forgot what happened when they tapped into Newt Gingrich.

Progressives should take note of how casually that Kay-wackyan Democrat dropped a dime on them. The tide is turning ~ someone in a different coalition partner in the Democrat party doesn't think he or she has gotten enough respect ~ and now the nights of the long knives begin.

That Judd gal should consider herself lucky she dropped out when she did because this will really get nasty and brutal. They've had in recent time try to murder their opponents

This sounds totally bogus to me. I think they're lying.

I also think the KY Democratic Party knows they're lying. And they are SCARED.

This may be a Watergate moment all over again...IF the mainstream media are pressured into covering it...

Right. A couple of dirtbag Democrats just happened to be hanging out in McConnell’s headquarters long enough to hear a conversation about Elmer Judd and decided to record it.

That doesn’t make any sense...if they were out in the hallway during the party as they claim there would be an incredible amount of background noise from the other guests. And it doesn’t make sense that McConnell and his advisers would hold this meeting with the party still going on.

LOL. Apologies. I was working late, waiting on a RAID array to rebuild. Tired and distracted is not an optimal way to FReep.
