    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.

    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.
