WASHINGTON — The FBI said Tuesday it is investigating whether Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Louisville campaign office was bugged after aides were caught on tape discussing possible political attacks on Ashley Judd.
The tape was posted by Mother Jones, advice a liberal magazine that created a stir last year when it published a secretly taped video of Mitt Romney.
“We can confirm that Sen. McConnell’s office reported this matter to us and we are looking into it,” said Paul Bresson, an FBI spokesman. “We are reviewing the tape to determine if any federal laws were violated.”
On the recording, McConnell’s aides discuss Judd and her struggles with depression and views on several topics, including religion. The actress-activist, who flirted with a Senate bid in Kentucky, said in late March that she would not run for the Democratic nomination in 2014 to take on McConnell.
