FBI investigating secret recording of McConnell talks about Ashley Judd

In the discussion of Grimes, the aide said she had endorsed Obama.

"She was too smart to use his name in a sentence," the aide said. "But she says, ‘my support of our party and our nominee is well known, and it’s no secret I’ll be in North Carolina to support our nominee and the party.’"

The aide charged that Grimes has "a very sort of self-centered, sort of egotistical aspect" and that "she’ll frequently use herself in the third person."

Grimes was unavailable for comment, a spokeswoman said.

It wasn’t the first time that Mother Jones has written about recordings from private meetings.

The magazine was the first to report about Republican Mitt Romney’s comments to donors paying $50,000 apiece to attend a private reception that 47 percent of Americans are dependent on government, see themselves as victims and believe the government has a responsibility to care for them.

Romney’s critics used the video to argue that he was out of touch with average Americans during the last presidential campaign.

Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon said the recording is telling about McConnell.

"I certainly do not know anything about how this may have happened," Logsdon said. "However, it’s clear that this is the McConnell we all know: leading a negative, nasty campaign determined to lash out at his opponents since he doesn’t have any accomplishments to point to."
