There were two developments in the Mitch McConnell tape controversy Thursday.

Earlier in the week, Mother Jones magazine posted audio of Senator McConnell and some of his aides in a meeting, criticizing potential candidates Ashley Judd and Alison Lundergan Grimes.

It included talk about Judd's mental health.

Jacob Conway, who is with the Jefferson County Democratic Party, said Thursday that two men affiliated with the liberal group Progress Kentucky admitted they taped the meeting while visiting McConnell's headquarters.

As of this writing, Progress Kentucky has not responded.

Also, a watchdog group called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington said they want an ethics investigation into McConnell and his staff.

They said senate aides, paid by taxpayers, shouldn't be used to do political work.

McConnell's campaign said the work was during their free time.
