      As a lifelong TEAbagger, I find McConnels' dirty tactics embarrassing to conservatives. If he can't run on his accomplishments maybe he should be replaced.

      Why would it matter what was said?

       It's illegal to bug conversations without a warrant

      It cost Nixon the Presidency.

    Whether or not a device was found during a search is probably immaterial, as it can be assumed that the person who made the recording, either with the device remotely or in-person at the meeting, had access to the room so they could have conceivably removed it before the search. 

    What does matter are the laws of the state with regard to the recording of private conversations where all parties do not have knowledge they are being recorded.  The fact that it was a strategic meeting and that the conversation was not what would be normally said in-public suggests that the parties did not know they were being recorded.  So, if the recording did not take place in a public venue (clearly it didn't) and if that state requires all parties to consent to the recording (evidently they didn't), then the person who made the recording is in-violation of the law.  Finding out who that was without any access to the news company's records and without finding the recording device could be problematic.  I'm sure they will look at who had access to the building.

      Yep. I'm thinking maybe one of McConnell's own wants McConnell out. Maybe it was Rove.

        Jimmy Carter's grandson did not record the Romney video. It was a bartender who was surprised by the unmitigated bull**************** flying out of Romney's mouth and hit "record" on his phone. He was there legally and did not break any law by recording the events.

          I thought this was common knowledge. That news has been available for quite awhile.

          Jimmy Carter's grandson was tired of hearing the ex-President used as GOP punchline

          You'd think that stealing from your employer by posting here while on the clock would be a crime
          Phil SaidIf you possess the superior intellect, then it should be no problem for you to point out the logical fallacies and other problems of their position or post without having to debase yourself by resorting to ad hominem attacks.

            I know, right?  Doesn't help that my boss is a liberal **************************** either.
