Liberal Super PAC ‘Progress Kentucky’ Who Made Racist Comments About Mitch McConnell’s Asian Wife Responsible For Illegal Secretly Recording Opposition Meeting On Ashley Judd
WATERGATE II in the “Blue Grass” State …
It turns out that a liberal super PAC group, “Progress Kentucky,” was responsible for the illegal recordings of Republican Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and his campaign staffers. The secretly and illegally recorded meeting was an opposition discussion on one time Democrat opponent, actor Ashley Judd. As reported at WFPL News, Jacob Conway, an executive committee member of the Jefferson County Democratic Party said the founders of Progressive Kentucky Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison were responsible for the illegal recording and bragged about recording the meeting.
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.
Much More from Mary Catherine Hamm at Hot Air and the “Water-Gating” of Mitch McConnell. Jacob Conway, who is on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Democratic Party outed ‘Progress Kentucky’ for the good of the party. Sounds more like a the rats fleeing the sinking ship and all individuals for themselves.
Dem Outed Liberal Group On McConnell Recordings For Good Of The Party
As stated at Legal Insurrection, “Mother Jones, who obtained and disseminated the tape as an exclusive, and David Corn better start lawyering up (which I assume they already have), because the question will become What did Mother Jones know about alleged McConnell bugging, and when did it know it?”
More from the illegal taping of the McConnell opposition meeting:
On Feb. 2, McConnell opened his campaign headquarters in the Watterson Office Park in Louisville and invited trusted GOP activists and select media outlets to an open house. The event lasted roughly two hours. Afterward, McConnell and several campaign advisors held a strategy session in an office meeting room.
Morrison and Reilly did not attend the open house, but they told Conway they arrived later and were able to hear the meeting from the hallway.
“They were in the hallway after the, I guess after the celebration and hoopla ended, apparently these people broke for lunch and had a strategy meeting, which is, in every campaign I’ve been affiliated with, makes perfect sense,” says 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.”

IRS Read Your Emails Without Warrants … Also, IRS Conducting Audits Based on FACEBOOK and TWITTER Info
Let this be a warning to “We the People” … be very careful what you put in emails, on Facebook or Twitter.
Badges, we don’t need no stinking badges, or in this case it is the IRS who claim they Don’t Need No Stinking Warrants. According to a FOIA from the ACLU, the IRS does not need a warrant to read your private emails. Isn’t that special that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) claims that their agents do not need warrants to read people’s emails, text messages and other private electronic communications. What every happened to privacy and freedoms and the following of the US Constitution in America? In a word, TYRANNY.
Everyone knows the IRS is our nation’s tax collector, but it is also a law enforcement organization tasked with investigating criminal violations of the tax laws. New documents released to the ACLU under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that the IRS Criminal Tax Division has long taken the position that the IRS can read your emails without a warrant—a practice that one appeals court has said violates the Fourth Amendment (and we think most Americans would agree).
Last year, the ACLU sent a FOIA request to the IRS seeking records regarding whether it gets a warrant before reading people’s email, text messages and other private electronic communications. The IRS has now responded by sending us 247 pages of records describing the policies and practices of its criminal investigative arm when seeking the contents of emails and other electronic communications.
So does the IRS always get a warrant? Unfortunately, while the documents we have obtained do not answer this question point blank, they suggest otherwise. This question is too important for the IRS not to be completely forthright with the American public. The IRS should tell the public whether it always gets a warrant to access email and other private communications in the course of criminal investigations. And if the agency does not get a warrant, it should change its policy to always require one.
But emails are not enough, the IRS is looking at Facebook and Twitter too.
Companies Ask for Potential Employees To Hand Over Their Pass Words to Facebook Accounts … Senators Ask Feds to Investigate
Employers cross the line of personal privacy by asking job applicants for Facebook passwords.
Finally an issue that the RIGHT, LEFT and MIDDLE can all agree on with the ACLU. Your password to your FACEBOOK or anything else that is yours personally is none of your bosses business. What party about invasion of privacy do these companies not understand? How about the fact that your very request goes against Facebook’s TOS, terms of service, of sharing passwords.
Good grief, why don’t they just ask for your email and cell phone password as well? While you are at it, ask for their teen diary. What’s next, your bank account, utility and Internet account passwords? Being required to “friend” the business would be bad enough, especially since many have their security settings so that only family and friends can see what is on their page, but a password? Who finds this completely hypocritical seeing that every company has COMPLIANCE departments that set policies and procedures, one of them that it is an immediate “termination” offense to share passwords?
