FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A liberal political fundraising group in Kentucky is being tied to a secret recording of a campaign meeting held by U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell in which his aides disparaged actress Ashley Judd.

The leader of Progress Kentucky and a volunteer were outside of the February campaign meeting and “never left a public hallway,” said attorney Ted Shouse, who is representing the group’s executive director, Shawn Reilly. The attorney said Reilly met with the FBI and is cooperating with the bureau’s investigation. The volunteer was Curtis Morrison.

Shouse did not explicitly say that Morrison made the recording. Morrison has not been charged with any wrongdoing. He has not returned phone calls and email.
