Isn't this a little like calling the cops to report that someone ripped off your drug stash?
"Last week, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R) squared off in a debate with Democratic challenger Bruce Lunsford. But on Lunsford's podium a GOP operative had placed a small voice recorder, presumably to pick up some off-mic comments Lunsford might make -- apparently a violation of the debate rules.
(The recorder itself -- sans recording -- was eventually returned.)" [...]"And now St. Onge and the chairman of McConnell's campaign have filed a criminal complaint against Lunsford for petty larceny and destruction of property -- because of the erasure." (emphasis smirkingly mine)
And Mitch McConnell... Mitch McConnell... hmmm... Oh yes, that fine upstanding example of GOP values.
