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.”

Clint Eastwood Political Pro-Romney Ad that States WE Cannot Survive an Obama Second Term, “The Future of our Country is at Stake.”
Dirty Harry asks, do you feel lucky America? Well do ya? Not under the presidency of Barack Obama.
Clint Eastwood was right about Barack Obama being an “empty chair” and he is correct that “the future of our country is at stake.” America, we cannot afford another four more years of Barack Obama.
“Obama’s second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn’t survive that.”
“For the last few years America has been knocked down. Twenty three million people can’t find full-time work. “Obama’s second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn’t survive that. We need someone who can turn it around fast. That man is Mitt Romney.”
“There is not much time left, and the future of our country is at stake.”
The political ad will be seen in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia.
Media Bias: CBS 60 Minutes Does Not Air on TV Barack Obama Admitting Mistakes in Campaign Ads … AKA Lying and Presenting Falsehoods against Romney
More Media Bias … Obama admits false ads against Romney and CBS decides not to air the comment on TV …
Could there be any greater example of MSM liberal bias than CBS’s 60 Minutes not airing during tehir TV broadcast that President Barack Obama admitted to mistakes in his campaign ads. UNREAL. CBS in their infinite wisdom and keeping up with being in the tank for Obama never allowed this to air during the TV broadcast, only posting it in line. During the interview Obama admits to … ” “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made … “. Mistakes made, or purposeful smear campaign Mr. President? But Obama justifies his campaigns deceitful lies because there is a lot at stake. Welcome to Chicago thug style politics. The GOP and Romney best not bring a knife to a political gun fight.
Barack Obama admits false political advertizing, but that’s ok, because you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election.
From the Weekly Standard:
Look, the fact-checkers have had problems with the ads on both sides,” Kroft says to Obama in the unaired clip, “and say they’ve been misleading and in some cases just not true. Does that disturb you? I mean, some of them are your ads.”
Obama responds: “Do we see sometimes us going overboard in our campaign, are there mistakes that are made, areas where there is no doubt somebody could dispute how we are presenting things? You know, that happens in politics.”
Kroft responds: “Aren’t the American entitled to the truth? Or a better version of it?”
“The truth of the matter is, most of the time we’re having a vigorous debate about a vision for the country,” Obama says. “And, you know, there’s a lot at stake in this election. So is it going to be sharp sometimes? Absolutely. But will the American people ultimately have a good sense of where I want to take the country and where Gov. Romney takes the country? I think they will.”
What, you mean that Obama and his minions knew that Romney did not help murder a cancer patient, did pay taxes and that the GOP is not out to kill old people and children, harm the air and water and kick granny off the cliff?
Samuel L. Jackson’s Presidential Ad … “Wake the f@#k up! Vote for Obama” … Problem is, America is Awake and They Don’t Like What they See
Hmm, just what Barack Obama needs, Samuel L. Jackson telling voters to “Wake the f*ck up, Vote for Obama”. How is this exactly supposed to garner Obama support? A foul mouth Hollywood type cursing for votes for Obama. Really, that’s your plan? We are reminded by Jammie Wearing Fool that the lat time we saw Jackson he was saddened that Hurricane Isaac had spared Republicans and the RNC convention as he was curing, “GOP spared by Isaac! NOLA prolly f—– again!”
They picked the perfect actor for a political ad loaded with f-bombs.
Samuel L. Jackson will film a provocative spot supporting President Obama’s re-election bid as early as tomorrow — telling voters to “Wake the f–k up, Vote for Obama.”
The ad is a riff on Jackson’s viral video “Go the F–k to Sleep,” where he narrates a children’s book written by Adam Mansbach.
I have to agree 100% with Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com, America is finally waking up and realizing that Barack Obama is a total failure both domestically and in foreign policy. The abysmal economic conditions in the United States have opened people’s eyes and the Middle East burning has made us collectively shake our heads as to have naive and weak Obama could possibly be. Democrats and Obama have awoke a Sleeping Giant and they do not like what they see in the White House.
Wrong approach. If Obama’s in trouble in this election, it’s because people are waking the f–k up. Instead of “wake the f–k up,” Jackson’s ad should take a page from that book and advise voters to “go the f–k back to sleep.”
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz Defends Priorities USA Super PAC Ad Accusing Romney of Killing a Woman & Has No Idea What Political Affiliation an Obama Endorsed Super PAC is … Really Debbie?
Sorry, but Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a nasty rotten individual and a poor excuse for a human being … have you no shame! You certainly have no credibility.
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared on Fox News Sunday and actually defended the recent Priorities USA Obama Super PAC ad that Mitt Romney was a murderer. Really Debbie, this is even a new low for you and from the things that you have said and done in the past there really was not too much room to go lower. Debbie Wasserman Schultz actually had the audacity to say that the vile ad raised fair questions. What might be even more comical than Debbie Wasserman Schultz not condemning the ad was her refusal to say that Priorities USA, Obama Super PAC was not a Democrat Super PAC. She claimed she did not know the political affiliation of Priorities USA. Really, a Super PAC run by “Bill Burton, who used to work in the White House, worked in Obama campaign in 2008?” Good grief, are you capable of ever telling the truth or do you just speak in talking points?
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Democrats have no more credibility, they are incapable of telling a simple truth
“What I think of the ad is that there’s no question that the ad raises facts, such as that Mitt Romney, when he was CEO of Bain Capital, bankrupted companies, laid off workers, cut their benefits and made millions of dollars in profits,” Wasserman Schultz said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“And that ad points out that there are consequences to making decisions like that, that impacted people’s lives in a significant way.”
Democrats have come under fire for the Priorities USA ad, in which Joe Soptic, who lost his job because of Bain Capital, appears to imply that the loss of his health insurance played a role in his wife’s death.
However, the bottom feeder DNC Chair and US rep from Florida actually defended the ad because it illuminated Romney’s time at Bain Capital. However, since this smear ad came out it has been proved that the facts in the ad are false and there was a 6 year time period between the time the woman’s husband was laid off and lost his insurance as to when she died. Also, the woman was employed after her husband was laid off and had her own insurance. This ad more than crossed the line of ethics and civility; however, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and President Obama have yet to condemn it.
Later, as Debbie Wasserman Schultz was probably forced to telling the truth because her nose grew too much. Any novice fact checker could figure out that Priorities USA was a Democrat Super PAC.
Wasserman Schultz also pointed out that, by law, political parties and super-PACs are not supposed to coordinate activities – even at one point saying she didn’t know whether those running Priorities USA, led by two former Obama staffers, were Democrats.
The Florida Democrat later backtracked on that remark on Twitter: “Clearly Priorities USA is a Democratic SuperPAC. Was trying to state the obvious: we have no control over their activities.”
EXIT QUESTION: How can anyone think any Democrats are telling the American people the truth when the DNC Chair is incapable of doing so?

The Lying Kings … Team Obama Acknowledges Knowing Joe Soptic’s Romney Killed My Wife from Cancer Story
LIAR, LIAR, PANTS ON FIRE …
Oh what a tangled web they weave, when Team Obama practices to deceive. It would appear that the reelection Obama camp has been caught in a bold face lie regarding any knowledge of Joe Soptic, the steelworker who is at the forefront of a factual wrong and disgusting smear ad attempting to link Mitt Romney to his wife’s death from cancer.
Obama campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki acknowledged Thursday that the campaign was no longer pleading ignorance about the story of a man who has appeared in both a super PAC ad and a campaign ad.
“No one is denying he was in one of our campaign ads. He was on a conference call telling his story,” Psaki told reporters on Air Force One.
Adviser Robert Gibbs said he didn’t know “specifics,” while deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said on CNN: “I don’t know the facts about when Mr. Soptic’s wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.”
More from the Politico and a response from the Mitt Romney camp.
Amanda Henneberg, a spokesperson for the Romney campaign, said this in a statement: “President Obama’s campaign has been caught lying about its knowledge concerning a vicious smear run by his Super PAC. And now, they have doubled down with another dishonorable and dishonest attack. In 2008, candidate Obama said ‘you make a big election about small things’ when you don’t have a record to run on. Since President Obama can’t run on record unemployment, falling incomes, and massive debt, he has decided to run a dirty campaign that is an affront to everything he claims to stand for.”
The real question is how does President Barack Obama not denounce this political, hatchet attack ad? It is one of the most reprehensible ads ever made that is so factually incorrect that it is nothing more than slander. However, with the close links between the Super PAC ad and one from Obama’s reelection team and the conference call, it is hard to believe that the Super PAC and Obama did not collude with the Joe Soptic story. American Power connects the dots and only a naive, Kool-aid drinking Obamaite would not draw the conclusion that there was communication between the Super PAC and Team Obama.
Even more from Investors Business Daily: Obama’s Campaign of Lies Reaches Despicable Low. So America, you think Obama is a nice guy eh, he looks more like a typical politicians doing anything at all cost to smear his opponent and save his job because he cannot run on his record. WAKE UP AMERICA!!! This should be the defining moment of the reelection as you are being presented with what Barack Obama and his minions are all about. They are not interested in helping to create jobs for John Q. Public, they are only interested in saving their own.
