FOX NEWS: Jacob Conway, who is on the committee of Kentuckys 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 Kentuckys Sean Riley and Curtis Morrison were in the hallway of McConnells 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.
Interesting. Sounds like they’re scared and hanging folks out to dry.
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.
WRONGO....the guy that so called “Ratted” is just out ther covering their rears by saying they were just listening in the hallway....no CRIME, RIGHT???? Yeah...right.
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?
Watergate is ok if committed by the Left.
What vile people Leftists are. They are not worth knowing.
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.
Yeah, right . . . this administration will do NOTHING about it.
Yup. Not believeing that lie either.
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.
Yeah, wrong... McConnell will be persecuted to the full extent of the law...
Sounds like the Dem realizes a Federal rap is a real possibility including complicity, so he rats them out. Smart move.
Guessed you missed my hidden sarcasm tag.
Yeah, wrong... McConnell will be persecuted to the full extent of the law..
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.
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.
>>Priceless Federal Felony
Yeah, it seems like the bombshell Mother Jones had blew up in the Democrats’ face.
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.
I disagree....I think NOTHING will happen to them...NOTHING. The Pubbies are so WUSSY, they will let it go on for MONTHS and then people forget and then yawn about any it. That couple that taped Boehner and Newt SHOULD HAVE BEEEN IN JAIL!!! A Fine is NOTHING!!
LOL. Apologies. I was working late, waiting on a RAID array to rebuild. Tired and distracted is not an optimal way to FReep.
