* Potential suspect was longtime Democratic insider, despite party's claim it was blindsided by investigation

The activists who allegedly recorded a private conversation among members of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's re-election team are tied to a liberal political action committee whose co-founder was a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention.
The Daily Caller reported that Reilly was a delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina. It cited a Huffington Post story which noted that before he co-founded Progress Kentucky, Reilly 'was a member of the executive committee of the state Democratic Party.'
'Although Reilly appears to be a member of the Democratic Party establishment,' the Caller reported, 'media outlets are now propagating a version of the illegal bugging story in which Democratic officials claim to have been blindsided by a scandal foisted on them by an unaccountable outside group.'
Mother Jones magazine, the non-profit liberal magazine that published the recording, may be in legal jeopardy - or in danger of losing its tax-exempt status - if it's determined that the tape was made illegally.

That should have been done long ago
Anyone remember offhand how many years G. Gordon Kiddy served for the same thing?

AND got his roommate killed while tailing “suspicious” people, ala George Zimmerman, a few years back.
The folks behind this are also RUNNING ADVERTISING on the local news linking background checks to Al quieda’s proaganda...gee advertising to hurt a republican who thought of that? I’ve been SCREAMING for months that advertising is how you get the attention of the low info voter. Obambi’s ratings are in the 40s they could be in the 30s if you ran advertising about ethanol, cost of food, cost of gasoline 4 years ago and today. But our side waits till 6 months before elections to try to change minds...too late.
Four and a half years actual time served. He was originally sentenced to twenty years.
It’s a good one.
lets switch parties and political groups and the corrupt lapdog media will be running with this for weeks but seeing as it’s their messiah and who they voted for then nothing from them
If it wasn’t for double standards, the Obama media would have no standards at all.
You are 100% correct. This would really make a difference!
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!
