My name is Curtis Morrison. On April 9, 2013, Mother Jones published a recording illustrating Sen. Mitch McConnell's 'Whac-A-Mole'-style approach to politics. The recording
shows McConnell's insensitivity to those of us who speak freely about our religious beliefs and/or who suffer from depression or mental illness, as well as his willingness to do just about anything to destroy an opponent.
I made that recording.
The recording also contains evidence suggesting that McConnell used federal employees and a mysterious third party to gather his Whac-A-Mole research. CREW has asked both Senate Ethics and the FBI to investigate those issues. If/when any investigations are started regarding those abuses of power, I will cooperate fully in them.
Despite the outrageous content of the recording, Mitch McConnell has tightly-guarded the identities of the people in the room who were recorded, and I believe it is fair to ask why that is? Were any of the people present with Karl Rove's superpac, American Crossroads, which released a Youtube video a few days after the meeting called "Ashley's Story"?
I have cooperated with the FBI investigation into how the recording was made, and I understand now the District Attorney is trying to get a grand jury to indict me. While my lawyer is charging a reasonable rate, I could use some help, and would be grateful for whatever you can pitch in.
Thank you for your consideration.
One more thing, if you suffer from depression or mental illness, you are not alone, and you, we, do not deserve to be marginalized or held back for generational diseases.
