Mitch McConnell (R-Ken.) had plenty of "opposition research" against actress/activist Ashley Judd if she had decided to run against the veteran lawmaker including stuff about her religious beliefs and her battles with depression. An audiotape of a presentation by the campaign was leaked to Mother Jones, and McConnell's people (who haven't answered questions about the substance of the tape) is demanding an FBI investigation.
