Skip to comments.The Chatter: Democrat in McConnell taping saga asks for help with lawyer bills and more
Posted on 04/15/2013 7:51:54 PM PDT by Republican Wildcat
One of the two Democrats implemented in the recording of a strategy meeting of U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell is asking people to donate to help pay legal fees.
Curtis Morrison, former member of the Democratic Super PAC Progress Kentucky, has started a legal defense fund setting a goal of $10,000 to pay legal fees. Morrison says he is cooperating in the FBI investigation looking into how the tape was obtained.
The website , created by Morrison Monday through gofundme.com, gives a description of the recording of the strategy meeting and asks for donations to help with legal fees.
Morrison says on the page:
I have been cooperating with the ongoing FBI investigation into how the recording was made. While my lawyer is charging a reasonable rate, I could use some help, and would be grateful for whatever you can pitch in.
If theres any funds leftover, I humbly would like to use them for living expenses, food, finding a new apartment, etc.- until I can procure new employment, hopefully writing.
The page is listed under the category of accidents and personal crisis on the site.
Morrison has declined requests for media interviews, including with Pure Politics.
McConnell not feeling bipartisan?
Politico quoted Senate insiders who said the Republican Senate leader isnt pushing for a bipartisan grand bargain because hes tired of dealing with Majority Leader Harry Reid.
From John Bresnahan and Jake Shermans article:
Bad blood remains between party leaders and the national partisan realities havent changed. And while the leaders dont get along, relationships among the other 98 senators will be tested when voting begins on the controversial gun and immigration measures starting with this weeks expected vote on expanding background checks for firearms purchases. McConnell plans to pull out all the stops to block the bill, and GOP senators are blasting any immigration plan that they say smells of amnesty.
McConnell challenger releases campaign song
The first Democrat to announce his candidacy for U.S. Senate next year released a song in lieu of a campaign ad.
Im a working class guy who wants to be a voice for those who are not being represented in Washington, D.C., Ed Marksberry, a Democrat from Owensboro, says as the song begins. I hear you and I think its time we all stand and say what about us?
The song, titled What About Us?, lasts close to 5 minutes and is a combination of singing and Marksberry discussing issues like medicare, equality and gun rights.
Marksberry closes the song by saying Im Ed Marksberry and Im running for U.S. Senate and I approve this message. Heck, I even wrote this song.

I’ve been watching his GoFundMe site. The comments are hilarious. Almost (but not quite) enough to make me get a Facebook account. What a tool this guy is.
I hope McConnell lawyers that sick scumbag into personal bankruptcy.
The creep sounds like a freeloading ObamaFoamer to me.
I think the writer means “implicated” instead of “implemented.” Makes me wonder about the rest of it.
...hes tired of dealing with Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Sounds good to me! I sure am glad Mitch is up for reelection this year. And "thank you", tea party.
I wouldn’t send him the sweat from my left armpit.
Just found it myself...the wording indicates he’s trying to say the incident was somehow McConnell’s fault and that he had to be taped.
maybe this story also but the one I read said he has alredy received $185,000.00.
Yeah, Mr. Morrion, go FUND yourself! ;)
Better yet let’s pay his way to southern Croatian, where he can CRIMEA river.
I’ll donate a kick in the butt to him!
I bet he’s “Shipping his pants” right now...
I just checked and he had a little over $1000 donated. I tried to donate a nickle but the min. is a buck.
He’s a demodummie. Keep the pressure on him and make him pay for what he did. Poetic justice?
Good plan. You should start by taking a Jr. High English class. Then you could apply at MSNBC.
