According to a secret recording, campaign aides to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell proposed using actress Ashley Judd's past bouts with depression against her if she had decided to challenge his re-election. Aides talked and laughed on the recording about Judd's political positions, religious beliefs, and past bouts of depression. Mother Jones says it was given the recording by a source who requested anonymity. The campaign says opponents are using "Watergate-era tactics."
