FRANKFORT, KY (AP) -- A Kentucky man has admitted to secretly recording a private campaign meeting between Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and his aides earlier this year.

Curtis Morrison of Louisville made the admission Friday in a first-person account posted on Salon.com, where he also said an assistant U.S. attorney has notified his attorney that a grand jury will consider bringing charges next Friday.

A spokeswoman said the U.S. attorney's office in Louisville would not comment. It was unclear who was representing Morrison. Morrison's phone had been disconnected, and he did not immediately respond to an email Friday.

Morrison, a former volunteer for the political group Progress Kentucky, also acknowledged in the story that he provided the recording to Mother Jones magazine.

On the recording, McConnell and his aides talked about opposition research into potential Democratic challengers.
