Typical, no remorse for illegality.
Typically, when you illegally record someone, that makes you a perpetrator. Not in the world of the left, where illegally recording Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) from a hallway outside his office wins you plaudits and status as a victim. Curtis Morrison, the spokesperson for super PAC Progress Kentucky who recorded McConnell’s office, has started a legal defense fund for himself that has raised a miniscule $2,590. Now he’s taking to the pages of Salon.com to whine about it.
“The released portion of the recording clocks in at less than 12 minutes, but those few minutes changed my life,” Morrison dramatically writes. “I leaked the recording to Mother Jones, which published it with a transcript and analysis in April, and over the days that followed, blogs and cable news shows lit up with the revelations from that one meeting.” In actuality, nothing from the meeting was particularly stunning – it was all basic campaign opposition research. What was more stunning was a political opponent illegally recording a sitting Senator.
