A new report identifies two founders of Progress Kentucky as the parties responsible for recording a February 2nd strategy meeting at Senator McConnell’s campaign office that was later published by Mother Jones.
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.” Conway says no one from the Kentucky Democratic Party was involved in the taping.
