Crime: Two Activists with "Controversial" Leftwing Group Progress Kentucky Admit to Secretly, and Illegally, Taping Mitch McConnell's Strategy Session

Guarantee: They'll be merely given a warning.

According to Jacob Conway of the Jefferson County Democratic Party, Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison bragged about having made the tape. "They were in the hallway after the, I guess after the celebration and hoopla ended, apparently these people broke for lunch and had a strategy meeting, which is, in every campaign I've been affiliated with, makes perfect sense," Conway told WFPL in Louisville. He added "One of them held the elevator, the other one did the recording and they left. That was what they told to me from them directly."

So, if these guys were bragging to near-strangers about the crime, what are the odds they didn't give the details to Mother Jones? They didn't seem to think much of implicating themselves in illegality.

I suspect Mother Jones coached them into giving a false version of it, so that Mother Jones could claim it was their "understanding" that no crime had been committed.

Just today the Washington Post claimed that Mother Jones had "struck gold" with this nothingburger -- and now definitely criminal -- illegal bugging.

Expect the left to rally 'round the pair, and tell us all how they're just committed idealists who made a tiny error in their zealous pursuit of The Truth.

James O'Keefe, who I believe is still on probation and requires judge approval to leave New Jersey, might have something to say about that.

I wonder what words the media will use for these two criminals. I think "spirited," "idealistic," and "perhaps too daring by half" will be in the mix.
