McConnell Alleges Bugging, Wants FBI Investigation

Says a tap was the source of the Judd story

Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell's re-election campaign has asked federal authorities to help it identify the source of a recording of private strategy sessions earlier this year involving research into a potential opponent, actress Ashley Judd.

McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said Tuesday that the campaign is working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney's office in Louisville to uncover who recorded a Feb. 2 meeting in Kentucky – attended by McConnell himself—which was published earlier today by the liberal magazine Mother Jones.
