His office was swept for bugs, and none were found. Looks like one of his own people wanted to put a knife in his back. Should this be the case, the recording is legal in the state of Kentucky.

So, if someone makes the very real comparison that McConnel dumped his wife and family and now shares a bed with a Chinese national that has strong labor ties to her motherland and who is KNOWN to have shipped millions of jobs overseas to her motherland.......that is racist and wrong..
But, if someone catches him making light of children with mental disabilities, it's a crime that HE WAS CAUGHT BEING NOT ONLY QUOTED BUT RECORDED?
Now this is a Wall Street regular, who's buddies with the Chinese Chamber of US Commerce, who sleeps with a Chineese national, and who hates America and louisville continues to vote in this turtle-faced Marxist?
There is something desperately wrong with Kentucky.

A little perspective here please...
There was (1)(one)(oNe) ONE 'tweet' that had the nErVe to refer to McConnell's wife's days as SECRETARY OF LAROR in the Bush/Cheney Cabinet madness, claiming that by her being Chinese AND all disproportionate number of JOBS 'WAS' that were for sure shipped to CHINA during her tenure, were her responsibility..??? I say he may be on to something BUT somehow McConnell worked this ONE tweet into one of the RACIST content....hum, I don't see that as racist but it's probably what someone so far removed from the reality of what racism is would see as one. Of course it was QUICKLY REMOVED! And end of story, but NOT for him he STILL goes on and on.
Let's all remember that this new wife could have just as easily been called a 'homeWRECKER'... We KNOW that's true!
And by the way, her father happened to DoNaTe to the GOP last year a whopping $80,000, so I'm sure that was meant to help ole MILLION dollar Mitch out on his 2014 campaign.
Mitch has a 38% approval rating. So to drag Ashley to the mud to waller with him is just his style. Wonder what he's got in store for Lunsford or anybody else he wants to play WaCkAmOLe with? Let's don't forget the Courier Journal was on his list, let's see how they handle him.
I have asked on many many forums and many many repub/tea partiers "WHAT has Mitch EVER done for KY? NEVER once have I EVER got an answer!
It does not matter how KY polls on an issue, Mitch votes with a greasy palm. He does NOT represent us! I look at other senators who care about their states, who fight everyday for their best interest, vote for improvements and jobs.
On the recent 'Jobs Bill' that would've brought 27,000 jobs & all that goes with it, to KY that were not only roads but towers where some counties do not even have internet. Utility improvements, bridges that are literally falling apart and taxes that could spur more state infrastructure jobs for years! ALL positives AND polled at OVER 90% but MITCH voted not only to FILiBUSTer but 'NO', and 'NO' again on every single bill that has been on the senate floor.
Honest to God, he made National News when one day he got soooo Filibuster HAPPY he Filibustered HIMSELF!
The ONLY thing he has been excited and adamant about is 'MountainTOP BLASTING' which by the way is backed by OUT OF STATE MONEY.... This Bill will actually be named after Ole Mitch himself, and the ONLY thing stopping him is OTHER senators that think this is a BAD idea for OUR landscape...
Tell me how a man like Mitch has become a Multi-MILLIONAIRE while drawing the salary of a senator? Insider Trading? Greased Palms from the Coal Companies?
DITCH MITCH.. Want to get a message to him? Good luck! Send him an email, you'll get a FORM letter barely touching on what you've written.
Try making a call as I have for a month. His lines are backed up and you are offered to leave 'NO' message in WA. Should you get through they will tell you there is ONE lady answering the 6 lines who has 'ZERO' idea of what any Bill contains but will happily take your ADDRESS so he can send you a 'FORM' letter.
Should you look his office up locally there's about 6 listing but only ONE that actually will get you a LIVE PERSON. She is answering 4 lines herself & knows NOTHING about the issues but will happily take your ADDRESS so he can send you a 'FORM' letter...
So needless to say, I don't leave my address ANYmore but my phone number! Reckon I'll EVER get a call back?
lol I'm not holding my breath unless he pulls strings and gets my name off these posts, he can do that you know, EVEN from the MUD.

He was worse! Ahahaha! Wow. Republicans are shytty human beings, and so are douchey fggts, like this douchey fggt above me.
