Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s reelection campaign asked the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Office on Tuesday to investigate how a magazine obtained a recording of a February strategy session.

“Senator McConnell’s campaign is working with the FBI and has notified the local U.S. Attorney in Louisville, per FBI request, about these recordings,” McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said in a statement. “Obviously a recording device of some kind was placed in Senator McConnell’s campaign office without consent. By whom and how that was accomplished will presumably will be the subject of a criminal investigation.”

On Tuesday morning, Mother Jones, a liberal magazine, published an audio recording of McConnell staffers discussing opposition research they could use against actress Ashley Judd, who was considering running against veteran senator. In an earlier statement, the McConnell campaign accused “the Left” of using “Nixonian tactics” and bugging the campaign’s headquarters

Every since the 47% video during the 2012 election campaign, liberals feel emboldened to do whatever it takes. FOR THE CAUSE!

Eh, this isn't a big deal unless it's proven some outsider planted a recording device. For all we know, it could have been one of McConnell's staffers.

And I still LOL every time I read this: "Every since the 47% video during the 2012 election campaign, liberals feel emboldened to do whatever it takes. FOR THE CAUSE!"

That's really rich. Good stuff.

Not to beat a dead horse but.....

The 47% video has way more stuff on it than catering to the rich and speaking of half the population as surfs and begging peasants. It was a honest "who I am video"

If you listen to it with a Mein komph filter to it I have heard these same conversations with some former friends who became skinheads in the 80's.

My fave part of the video has the glowing explination of a sweatshop that Bain purchased in China. Barb wire..120 women to a bathroom-Shower(hole in floor and waterhose) Keeping women out of the factory bc so many people want to break into a prision a work long hours for little pay.

There should be a "CAUSE" to expose all these politicians that lack basic empathy and understanding of humanity. Look at the NC out of control Repubs that will help turn NC blue in the next elections. Basically proposing laws that only civil war reenacters and snake dancers would even blush at.. It took a viral video to expose a disconnected man for who he is.

Single person notification is allowed in some states...but not if it's third party.

If it's someone IN the office, it's legal. Maybe a bunch of republicans should simply pose as liberals and infiltrate and record every detail of every campaign management meeting. Sounds like a good idea.

FBI will find out if it's 3rd party or someone from the office.

As for the Romney comment, candidates make comments all the time within the confidence of "no cameras/no reporters" luncheons. What Romney said was stupid and had absolutely no worth. Obama claimed a bunch of people were bitter clingers to bibles and gun, but that didn't get quite the mileage. Because he's Mr. Entertainment Tonight.

    • Calvin Pryor sucks he's getting cut at some point they just drafted two guys that can disguise their blitz looks as both Maye and Adams can do a lot of the same things. Jets safety's are going to be beastly, and it's not like their front is bad either with Richardson and Wilkerson but I don't even know who is playing QB for them
    • Some of you may remember that I'm a banjo player and studying classical guitar and music composition at East Carolina University. This was my senior year and for my senior composition recital I composed a 40 minute chamber opera. I heavily borrowed from traditional folk songs from The Anthology of American Folk Music (good composers borrow, great composers steal - Igor Stravinsky). The idea was original to be about a 20 minute telling of the story from The House Carpenter, but after researching the history of the ballad, I decided to do a telling of the Scottish Daemon Lover version of the story and mix elements of other ballads into the story. I used a lot of melodies from the ballads that I used, though a lot of times you'll have words from one ballad, mixed with the melody from another. It's a large thing so I'm giving a link to download it from dropbox. I hope some of you are interested enough to listen. If you're not, who can blame you, move along and enjoy your day. The Daemon Lover Below is a description of each scene. Act 1
      Scene 1
      The House Carpenter is building a cabin in the mountains win a demon comes to see him. He says he must give himself or one of his family as a sacrifice. The House Carpenter says to take his wife, because she has no ability to make money for their children. Scene 2
      Jane Reynolds is alone at him and tells the story of her long lost love, James Harris. The House Carpenter returns home and tells her that he has to go out of town on a business trip. Jane Reynolds tries to convince him to stay, but she is unsuccessful. Scene 3
      Jane Reynolds is alone at home when the demon comes to fetch her disguised as her lost love, James Harris. He convinces her to go away with him and leave her children with the House Carpenter. Act 2
      Scene 1
      Less than 2 weeks later the demon and Jane Reynolds are at sea. Jane Reynolds begins to have second thoughts about leaving her family for James Harris. The demon grows tired of this and reveals himself to her. Scene 2
      The House Carpenter is living with deep regret for what he’s done to Jane Reynolds. He reveals that she is a witch, and if he hangs himself the spell the demon has on her will be lifted. The House Carpenter hangs himself. Scene 3
      After the House Carpenter hangs himself, Jane Reynolds can feel her witchcraft return to her. She makes the demon a mortal man and punctures the boat. The boat sinks and Janes Reynolds and the demon drown at sea. Below are the program notes for the piece When I was fifteen my Grandfather pulled a banjo down from his attic and told me if I could learn to play it I could have it. A few years later I discovered The Anthology of American Folk Music edited by Harry Smith. The music contained on those six CDs opened my eyes to an “old, weird America” that I had no idea even existed. I learned how to play and sing every ballad on it, and it was these songs that gave me confidence to major in music. I’ve felt for the last couple years that the deeper I get into classical theory and technique, the further I’m getting away from these folk songs that have been so important to me. This chamber opera is my attempt to reconnect a little bit with some of these ballads. “The Daemon Lover” is a traditional Scottish ballad that is known as “The House Carpenter” in America. The story in this opera is basically that song, with a few story elements added that come from other folk songs. These songs include “The Old Lady and the Devil, Butcher’s Boy, The Cuckoo, Omie Wise, and The Drunkard’s Special. The melodies are also taken from folk songs, though often the words are taken from one folk song and sung with the melody of another one.
