The man who is suspected of bugging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s office has started a legal defense fund aimed at raising $10,000 — and so far, he’s received $185.

Breitbart reported that Curtis Morrison, who’s also a Progress Kentucky volunteer, said in a message about his fund that he’s cooperating with the FBI. But he’s struggling to pay for his legal defense.

Mr. Morrison also said he needs money to pay for food, as he’s unemployed.

“While my lawyer is charging a reasonable rate, I could use some help, and would be grateful for whatever you can pitch in,” he said in his message, Breitbart reported. “If there’s any funds left over, I humbly would like to use them for living expenses, food, finding a new apartment, etc. — until I can procure new employment, hopefully writing.”

A Kentucky Democratic Party operative and the founder of Progress Kentucky outed Mr. Morrison last week as the person who allegedly bugged Mr. McConnell’s office, Breitbart reported.
