Everything about this story--from the video footage itself to the story about how the MDP acquired the footage--is a thing of beauty:
Republicans caught using spyglasses at Schauer campaign fundraiser
Detroit — For the third time this year, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Mark Schauer is accusing Republicans of attempting to spy on his campaign.
But this time, the suspected political subterfuge involves a high-tech hidden camera and a video memory disk that fell into the hands of Democrats.
And Republicans are defending their campaign snooping.
Schauer’s campaign and Oakland County Democrats recently came into possession of a tiny disk containing raw video footage of a young woman and man who secretly recorded a Schauer campaign fundraiser June 22 at a private home in Bloomfield Hills.
I'll post the video below, but you really have to read the whole story.
I actually have a connection to this incident; I wasn't at this particular fundraiser, but it took place in my hometown (Bloomfield Hills), and I did attend the prior fundraiser in Ferndale that they refer to in the video itself...where I had met (and presumably was recorded by) them.
I actually missed the OCDP meeting a couple of weeks later where the memory card was found, though.
Bonus: Our own Eclectablog, Chris Savage, is mentioned later in the story for his own busting of a rather slow-witted Snyder campaign intern who tried to infiltrate the Schauer campaign.
