Kentucky Democratic SuperPAC behind McConnell recordings

Weird, I would’ve bet good money that a staffer or lobbyist had stabbed Mitch in the back. In my defense, I came to that conclusion because I assumed there was some measure of security and secrecy to McConnell’s campaign meetings. Turns out he might as well have broadcast them with a webcam.
Political Wire: A secret recording of a campaign strategy session between Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his advisors was recorded by leaders of the Progress Kentucky super PAC, Democratic operative Jacob Conway tells WFPL-FM.

The super PAC operatives did not attend the opening of McConnell’s campaign headquarters, but they arrived later and were apparently able to hear the strategy meeting from the hallway.

Said Conway: “One of them held the elevator, the other one did the recording and they left. That was what they told to me from them directly… Apparently the gentlemen overheard the conversation and decided to record it with a phone or recording device they had in their pocket. Could’ve been an iPhone, could’ve been a Flip camera or something like that.”
You could hear all of Mitch’s super-secret campaign plans from the hallway of his building. What is this, some replica Japanese pagoda with paper walls? This whole story gets more and more ridiculous as time goes on. You’d think McConnell were a first term alderman, instead of the minority leader of the US Senate.
