Mueller was acquitted on wiretapping charges last year in an incident where he was video recording cops in public in Massachusetts.
But this case is a little different in that he recorded a public official over the phone without specifically informing them that he was recording.
It wasn't as if he recorded anything confidential, embarrassing or even that revealing. They basically gave him little or no comment and hung up the phone.
But in this age of citizen journalism, public officials will do all they can to keep citizens in check if it helps them from being kept in check.
