    Source: Progress Kentucky Behind Mitch McConnell Campaign Recording

    A secret recording of a campaign strategy session between U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and his advisors was taped by leaders of the Progress Kentucky super PAC, says a longtime local Democratic operative.


    Mother Jones Magazine released the tape this week. The meeting itself took place on Feb. 2.


    Jacob Conway, who is on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, says that day, Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison, who founded and volunteered for Progress Kentucky, respectively, bragged to him about how they recorded the meeting.

    Is anyone really surprised. This is the same sleazy outfit that published racist comments about McConnell's wife just a few weeks ago. I do give kudos to Conway though for blowing the whistle on the scumbags to prevent the Democrat party from being blamed.

    Let's hope these two jokers spend some time behind bars.

    Yeah those guys are sleazy but I don't understand why you would risk jail time to do something like that.

    Maybe I'm just cynical but you have to be really naive to think meetings like that don't occur when every incumbent is up for re-election.

    I bet they are going to try the "they spoke loud enough so it doesn't count as private" defense.

    Whether that works or not, its still sleazy and bush league.

    Looks like this group is toast. When the Democratic party throws them under the bus, it's time for them to hang it up.

    Evidently their hatred for McConnell overcame their common sense, if they had any to begin with.

    Of course it does. This one was just recorded and served on a platter for lefty "outrage." Which is dumb.

    No shock, it's the same disgusting rag that was repeatedly attempting to have a go at Santorum over his wife's supposed "abortion" in an incredibly dishonest way. The place is WorldNetDaily level filth.

    I doubt that they will do jail time. But I do think the tax exempt status of Progressive Kentucky should be removed if not right out disbanded altogether. Every party does opposition research, which I think is wrong. It brings out everything thing in the past and usually it is out of context, what should be concentrated on in a campaign is where each candidate stands on the issues and the solution to problems they bring to the table. But this is what our political system has become. Substance has no place in a political campaign anymore. Just lurid details and innuendos
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    From what I heard, in Kentucky one has to have permission from the parties involved prior to taping them. Some states you have to have permission from all the parties and others from just one. I just finished listening to the spokesman for the national DNC, they condemned the taping also. But he did say before providing more on the DNC stance, he wanted to wait to make sure it was these two that had been identified before saying anything more.
