An unidentified aide said Judd had made a public statement as a Tennessee delegate to the national convention about her support of President Barack Obama, an unpopular political figure in Kentucky. The aide said that statement could be used against her. He also said the statement raised another issue: that Judd is a resident of Tennessee, not Kentucky.
A recording of Judd could then be heard in which she said "I am committed to President Obama and Vice President Biden. They're my candidates and I will be a surrogate in the campaign and do whatever I can ... "
An aide also charged that Judd is "clearly sort of anti-sort-of-traditional American family. ... She described having children as selfish, and she thinks it's unconscionable to breed. So you put that with what we'll talk to you later about — her sort of pro-choice stance — and it's sort of a, you know, pretty extreme posture to take."
The aide then plays a recording of Judd talking about her religious beliefs: "I still choose the God of my understanding as the God of my childhood. I have to expand my God concept from time to time, and you know particularly I enjoy native faith practices, and have a very nature-based God concept. I'd like to think I'm like St. Francis in that way. Brother Donkey, Sister Bird."
The campaign aides then laugh loudly.
An unidentified man then says "the people at Southeast Christian would take to the streets with pitchforks," referring to an evangelical megachurch in Louisville.
The aide finishes his narrative about Judd with a discussion about past mental health issues.
"She's clearly — this sounds extreme — but she is emotionally unbalanced," the aide said. "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."
