April 11, 2013 1:55 p.m.

The co-founder of Progress Kentucky, a liberal group accused of recording a private strategy session by aides of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConell on the potential candidacy of actress Ashley Judd, has denied doing so, at least according to Joe Arnold, a political editor for the local TV station WHAS11:

Jacob Conway, a local county Democratic Party official in Kentucky, claimed earlier today that co-founders Shawn Reilly and Curtis Morrison of Progress Kentucky bragged to him about recording the meeting from outside the room where it was held. Conway has been in contact with the FBI.
