Ashley Judd: Slammed By Would-Be Political Opponents
She decided not to run for US Senate after a brief consideration, but Ashley Judd still felt the sting of the political process thanks to an unauthorized recording of a meeting in Mitch McConnell’s office.
On the illegally-obtained tape, Senator McConnell and his team can be heard discussing the “Double Jeopardy” dame in an unflattering light, questioning her fitness for a government position.
A meeting leader declared, "She's clearly, this sounds extreme, but she is emotionally unbalanced. I mean it's been documented. Jesse can go in chapter and verse from her autobiography about, you know, she's suffered some suicidal tendencies. She was hospitalized for 42 days when she had a mental breakdown in the '90s."
The diatribe continued, "She is critical…of traditional Christianity. She sort of views it as sort of a vestige of patriarchy. She says Christianity gives a God like a man, presented and discussed exclusively with male imagery, which legitimizes and seals male power, the intention to dominate even if that intention is nowhere visible."
“She’s clearly sort of anti-sort-of-traditional American family. She described having children as selfish, and she thinks it's unconscionable to breed. She also is critical of, of fathers giving away their daughters in marriage ceremonies. She says it's a common vestige of male dominion over a women's reproductive status when her father gives her away at a wedding."
Regarding the illegal recording, McConnell’s rep told press, "Senator McConnell's campaign is working with the FBI and has notified the local U.S. Attorney in Louisville, per FBI request, about these recordings. Obviously a recording device of some kind was placed in Senator McConnell's campaign office without consent. By whom and how that was accomplished presumably will be the subject of a criminal investigation."
