McConnell Weighed Attacking Judd on Her Mental Health

Mother Jones obtained audio of a private meeting Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell held with aides "to discuss how to attack his possible Democratic foes, including actor/activist Ashley Judd, who was then contemplating challenging the minority leader. During this strategy session McConnell and his aides considered assaulting Judd for her past struggles with depression and for her religious views."

Said one aide: "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."
