A Progress Kentucky volunteer who was at the center of a story involving the secret recording of Senator Mitch McConnell’s campaign meeting earlier this year has publicly admitted to making the recording, and he says that his attorney has been contacted by an assistant US Attorney about the matter.
Curtis Morrison, a founder and volunteer for Progress Kentucky, admitted to making the recording in a self-confession of sorts today at Salon.com.
From ABC News (via AP):
A Kentucky man has admitted to secretly recording a private campaign meeting between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and his aides earlier this year.
Curtis Morrison of Louisville made the admission Friday in a first-person account posted on Salon.com, where he also said an assistant U.S. attorney has notified his attorney that a grand jury will consider bringing charges next Friday.
A spokeswoman said the U.S. attorney’s office in Louisville would not comment. It was unclear who was representing Morrison. Morrison declined to comment via email Friday.
In his Salon post, Morrison bemoans the betrayal from “his own side,” seemingly shocked that his antics hadn’t exalted him to hero status. He then goes on to explain how the consequences of his deeds ruined his relationship with cohort Shawn Reilly – whom he says was against publication of the recording – and he details how the ordeal has negatively impacted his life.
In the days that following the audio leak, I lost my friendship with Shawn. I lost my apartment. I lost my job and my career path.
Unlike Mitch McConnell, I will not paint myself as a victim. Ive learned a lot in these weeks. But nothing stung like hearing Yarmuth brush me aside like that. I was so upset that all I could do is go for a long run. Frankly, I had a good cry. And as I pounded away the stress and frustration of that moment, I had to wonder: Did I make a mistake?
Morrison’s first mistake was in not recognizing in advance that releasing such a recording would potentially backfire on him, as it did. The entire ordeal ended up turning McConnell, his intended target of ire, into the victim.
Secondly, he seems to have overestimated the support he thought he’d receive by releasing the tape. Judging from the reactions and portrayals of him and Progress Kentucky from some of those on “his own side” in the aftermath, I’d venture to guess that Morrison’s perception of himself was also sorely overestimated.
Lastly, upon hearing that an assistant US Attorney has contacted his attorney “asking to meet with him next Friday as charges against [him] are being presented to a grand jury,” Morrison takes to a liberal blog to publish a self-confession to the world, while simultaneously cutting down those he perceives as having abandoned him.
But “I will not paint myself as a victim,” says Morrison.
The man just keeps on compounding his mistakes. Perhaps it’s time for some soul searching on his part.
Amazing. The dumbass pulls a stunt a nine year old knows is wrong and he wonders why no one wants to stand anywhere near him.
http://www.breitbartunmasked.com/rogues-gallery/when-will-the-fbi-investigate-james-okeefes-illegal-wiretaps/ ~ kinda from the OTHERSIDE, but the point is ~ in case anyone missed it ~ you really can get prosecuted for this sort of thing. BTW, Maxine Waters wasn’t ruined but the laws protect members of Congress anyway even if they are discussing how to murder each other in bed. BTW, this guy’s article admits O’Keefe actually got prosecuted (for tapping Miss Piggie’s phone no less)!
The web site where the little turd begged for money was pretty amusing. He finally had to take down the comments. What an a-hole.
Being a liberal means never having to say you're sorry.
Because...all your intentions are good...and it's impossible to do wrong.
Liberalism provides an impervious shield against both error and shame.
>> The dumbass pulls a stunt a nine year old knows is wrong
Invasion of privacy is all the rage these days.
Hard time for this little turd...
Don’t worry. Ashley Judd will bail him out.
I think that more than a few of these left-wing yunts grow up fantasizing about having been “the one person” who assassinated Hitler when he was climbing the ladder to total power.
They honestly believe that the Republicans are morally identical to Nazis. Their hatred knows no bounds, and justifies anything they might decide to do.
When they discover that not all of their fellow-travelers feel the same way, they’re shocked.
Yuh can’t fix stupid.
In his case he rock hard stoopit ...
Actually, what he said was, "I will not paint mythelf as a victim."
I'm guessing this was a faggot / Democrat organization?
Stuff like this is why you cannot debate the left. They believe they are morally unassailable and that anything they do is justified.
This twerp needs to spend a lot of time in jail, preferably a jail in a place like Cuba or some other hard left place
I wonder what his DU screen name is.
More proof that liberalism is a mental disease...
