Things are moving quickly on Juddgate. As professor Jacobson at Legal Insurrection notes;
"Mother Jones and David Corn better start lawyering up (which I assume they already have), because the question will become What did Mother Jones know about alleged McConnell bugging, and when did it know it?"
It appears that the bugging was merely eavesdropping recorded on a cell phone however this does not necessarily mean it was legal. The audio was recorded by two members of Progress Kentucky super PAC, Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison. the two bragged about their exploits to Jacob Conway, who is on the executive committee of the Jefferson County Democratic Party and who in turn outed them to protect the local Democrat Party.
Update: Shawn Reilly was a delegate to the DNC in Charlotte.
