10 registrazioni segrete più incriminanti

2013-08-07
Potresti non riconoscere quest'uomo, ma la registrazione di una delle sue conversazioni telefoniche è stata dannosa per Lance Armstrong.

Probabilmente non sorprende che le persone facciano cose a porte chiuse che non vorrebbero mai diventassero di dominio pubblico. Ma dall'avvento delle apparecchiature di registrazione facilmente occultabili , è diventato molto più facile catturare qualcuno in una controversia e trasmetterlo al mondo.

Molti politici, membri della famiglia reale, personaggi sportivi e altre celebrità sono stati ripresi in audio o video mentre dicevano o facevano qualcosa che avrebbero preferito cancellare dalla memoria pubblica e alcune registrazioni hanno messo le persone in guai seri.

Gli scandali registrati hanno causato di tutto, dal semplice imbarazzo all'impeachment fino al carcere per le parti sfortunate. Dai reali cattivi ai politici caduti, ecco 10 delle registrazioni segrete più incriminanti della storia recente.

10: Raccolta fondi di Romney

Il discorso della raccolta fondi privata del candidato alla presidenza repubblicana del 2012 Mitt Romney potrebbe aver ispirato donazioni, ma potrebbe anche essergli costato dei voti.

Con grande dispiacere dell'allora candidato alla presidenza Mitt Romney, un discorso che ha fatto il 17 maggio 2012 a una raccolta fondi da $ 50.000 a piatto in una residenza privata di Boca Raton, in Florida, è stato segretamente registrato. È stato poi pubblicato sul sito Mother Jones nel settembre 2012, non molto tempo prima delle elezioni del 2012.

Sul nastro, Romney ha detto cose che non stava dicendo al pubblico durante la campagna elettorale e, dopo il contraccolpo che ne è seguito, chiaramente avrebbe preferito non aver mai sentito. I commenti che hanno fatto più notizia riguardavano chi percepiva come elettori radicati in Obama: "Ci sono il 47% delle persone che voteranno per il presidente, qualunque cosa accada. Va bene, c'è il 47% che è con lui, che dipendono dal governo, che credono di essere vittime, che credono che il governo abbia la responsabilità di prendersi cura di loro, che credono di avere diritto all'assistenza sanitaria, al cibo, all'alloggio, a chi vuoi tu... E quindi il mio lavoro non è preoccuparmi di quelle persone, non le convincerò mai che dovrebbero assumersi la responsabilità personale e prendersi cura delle loro vite.

Il nastro, che ha causato scalpore e ha messo la campagna di Romney sulla difensiva, è stato realizzato da Scott Prouty, che era il barista dell'evento. Apparentemente ha registrato il discorso come ricordo, ma poi ha deciso di pubblicare una breve clip da YouTube in cui Romney ha descritto il tour di una fabbrica in Cina. Dopo essere stato contattato da James Carter IV, il nipote di Jimmy Carter, per conto del giornalista di Mother Jones David Corn, Prouty ha fornito l'intero nastro e il resto è storia. Prouty è rimasto anonimo fino a marzo 2013.

Non si può davvero dire se il discorso abbia portato direttamente alla sconfitta di Romney per mano del presidente Obama nel 2012, ma non può aver aiutato.

9: Incontro di Rupert Murdoch con i dipendenti Sun

Un manifestante vestito da Rupert Murdoch durante una protesta del febbraio 2012 a Londra, Inghilterra.

Il 6 marzo 2013, il fondatore di News Corporation Rupert Murdoch e i membri della leadership di The Sun hanno incontrato circa due dozzine di giornalisti Sun , tutti arrestati durante un'indagine della polizia su pratiche illegali presso The Sun e altre pubblicazioni di News Corporation. L'incontro, presso la sede di The Sun a Londra, è stato segretamente registrato e divulgato al pubblico online, oltre che consegnato alla polizia.

Gli arresti sono avvenuti in relazione a molteplici indagini innescate da uno scandalo in un altro giornale di News International, News of the World, che è stato sorpreso ad assumere persone per hackerare i telefoni di persone degne di nota, inclusi reali, celebrità, politici e rapimento di 13 anni e la vittima di omicidio Milly Dowler. Ci sono state anche accuse di aver cancellato alcuni dei messaggi vocali di Dowler per far posto a nuovi messaggi, causando confusione nelle indagini sulla sua scomparsa. News of the World, che operava dal 1843, fu chiuso a causa dello scandalo, mentre iniziarono le indagini su pratiche simili su diversi giornali. Sono stati effettuati quasi un centinaio di arresti e si è scoperto che The Sun e altre pubblicazioni stavano apparentemente consegnando ingenti somme di denaro a determinati funzionari pubblici su base regolare.

I commenti di Murdoch durante l'incontro, piuttosto che negare l'illecito, sembravano confermare che la corruzione di funzionari pubblici continuava come una cosa ovvia nel mondo delle notizie, dicendo: "... non conosco nessuno, o niente, che ha fatto tutto ciò che non veniva fatto attraverso Fleet Street e non era la cultura. E veniamo presi di mira". Alla domanda di un giornalista in merito alle pratiche di lavoro ereditate, Murdoch ha detto: "Stiamo parlando di pagamenti per notizie da parte della polizia. Sono passati cento anni, assolutamente. Non l'hai istigato". Nel corso della conversazione, Murdoch ha anche detto: "È la più grande indagine di sempre, quasi per nulla", [fonte: Hencke ].

8: Telefonate tra gli amici di Lance Armstrong

Prima della polemica: LeMond e Armstrong chiacchierano durante la quinta tappa del Tour de France 1994.

Lance Armstrong, membro della squadra di ciclismo professionistica sponsorizzata dal servizio postale degli Stati Uniti, ha vinto il Tour de France sette volte consecutive dal 1999 al 2005. Il suo scandalo su nastro si distingue in quanto la conversazione registrata non lo includeva direttamente.

Nel luglio 2004, Greg LeMond, tre volte vincitore del Tour de France e rivale di Armstrong, registrò segretamente una conversazione telefonica tra lui e Stephanie McIlvain, che lavorava per Armstrongcome collegamento per sponsorizzare Oakley. LeMond le ha chiesto se avrebbe detto la verità su una conversazione che aveva sentito per caso in ospedale quando Lance era in cura per un cancro ai testicoli, e lei ha detto che non avrebbe mentito e che l'ha sentito. Nel 2005, come testimoni in una causa intentata da Armstrong contro SCA Promotions, Betsy e Frankie Andreu hanno testimoniato che nel 1996 hanno ammesso di aver usato steroidi e altri farmaci dopanti a un medico nell'ospedale in cui era in cura; McIlvain ha rilasciato una deposizione dicendo di non averlo sentito fare l'ammissione. Armstrong ha insistito sul fatto che il personale dell'ospedale non gli ha mai chiesto se fosse dopato e il suo avvocato ha affermato che le cartelle cliniche non mostravano prove di quella conversazione.

Nel 2010, McIlvain e altri sette sono stati citati in giudizio per testimoniare in un'indagine penale su Armstrong e altri sull'uso di droghe nel mondo del ciclismo professionistico per determinare se sporgere denuncia. Non è chiaro quale testimonianza abbia dato McIlvain al gran giurì e l'indagine alla fine è stata archiviata.

Nell'ottobre 2012, l'Agenzia antidoping degli Stati Uniti ha pubblicato un rapporto in cui affermava che c'erano prove conclusive che Armstrong si era dopato durante la sua carriera e incoraggiava anche altri compagni di squadra a farlo, inclusa la testimonianza di 11 dei suoi compagni di squadra e almeno un testimone oculare. Armstrong ha continuato a negare le accuse, ma in quello stesso mese il Tour de France lo ha privato dei suoi titoli. Livestrong, l'ente di beneficenza contro il cancro che ha fondato dopo il suo incontro con la malattia, ha riportato un calo delle entrate dopo lo scandalo e Armstrong ha rotto i legami ufficiali con Livestrong nel novembre 2012.

Durante un'intervista con Oprah Winfrey nel gennaio 2013, Armstrong ha finalmente ammesso di aver assunto farmaci dopanti durante la sua carriera ciclistica.

La telefonata registrata era solo uno dei tanti pezzi del dannato puzzle di prove che si sono riunite contro Armstrong.

7: La conversazione telefonica tra Bobby Davis e Laurie Fine

Bernie Fine a margine di una partita tra i Syracuse Orange e i Connecticut Huskies durante i quarti di finale del Big East Tournament al Madison Square Garden il 12 marzo 2009 a New York City.

L'8 ottobre 2002, Bobby Davis, ex raccattapalle della Syracuse University, ha registrato una conversazione telefonica tra lui e Laurie Fine, moglie di Bernie Fine, allenatore di basket associato di lunga data di Syracuse. I suoi commenti indicavano che poteva aver saputo o sospettato che suo marito avesse molestato Davis quando era spesso a casa loro da bambino, anche se non è mai arrivata al punto di ammettere di averlo visto accadere. Davis ha accusato Bernie di aver abusato sessualmente di lui per circa 15 anni a partire da quando era solo in seconda media.

Davis ha consegnato il nastro al Syracuse Post-Standard nel 2002 e all'ESPN nel 2003, ma entrambi hanno rifiutato di pubblicare le informazioni, almeno in parte perché non c'erano prove sufficienti e non c'erano altri testimoni. Secondo quanto riferito, Davis è andato anche alla polizia di Syracuse nel 2002, ma non è stata avviata alcuna indagine. La Syracuse University ha indagato sulle accuse di Davis nel 2005 e non ha trovato prove a sostegno .

On the tape , Laurie and Davis discuss Bernie Fine's molestation openly. Davis even asked Mrs. Fine, "You think I'm the only one he's ever done that to?" and she replied, "No." The tape also seems to confirm that Laurie Fine herself had a sexual relationship with Davis, who said later in an interview that it occurred when he was 18 and that he had told Bernie Fine about it. Laurie Fine has denied that she and Davis had such a relationship.

The tape was finally released by ESPN in November 2011, after Davis's older stepbrother reported that Fine also molested him when he was a ball boy. The tape along with the new allegations resulted in Syracuse putting Bernie Fine on administrative leave. However, the age of the alleged crime meant that the statute of limitations had passed, so the police could not investigate.

A few days after the tape emerged, a third man accused Bernie Fine of molesting him in a hotel room in 2002 when he was 13, the night before an away game in Pittsburgh. After the third allegation -- a more recent crime -- police conducted a search of the Fines' home.

Laurie Fine threatened to sue ESPN for libel for releasing segments of the tape, prompting them to release the full 47-minute tape. As of mid-2013, Bernie Fine has denied all charges.

6: Intercettazioni telefoniche dell'FBI del governatore dell'Illinois Rod Blagojevich

Blagojevich è stato preso in custodia federale il 9 dicembre 2008 per affrontare accuse di corruzione che includevano il tentativo di vendere il seggio al Senato di Obama.

Un'indagine dell'FBI sul governatore dell'Illinois Rod Blagojevich è iniziata nell'ottobre 2008 quando uno dei suoi associati, John Wyma, li ha informati che Blagojevich stava tentando di sollecitare contributi elettorali o altri benefici personali in cambio di favori ufficiali. Le autorità hanno ricevuto il permesso di intercettare i suoi telefoni e installare microfoni nell'ufficio della sua campagna, lo hanno registrato per circa sette settimane e hanno raccolto prove sufficienti per arrestarlo nel dicembre 2008. Lo scandalo ha anche portato al suo impeachment.

Le registrazioni cariche di parolacce hanno rivelato gli sforzi per accettare contributi elettorali o altre tangenti in cambio della nomina al seggio senatoriale degli Stati Uniti lasciato libero dal presidente Barack Obama dopo la sua elezione alla presidenza, tra gli altri possibili vantaggi nell'ambito del suo potere di governatore . Dopo che il primo processo nell'agosto 2010 ha portato a una giuria sospesa, la squadra di difesa di Blagojevich ha cercato di impedire che le registrazioni venissero riprodotte come prova durante il nuovo processo, senza successo. Nel 2011, è stato condannato per 18 capi di imputazione per corruzione criminale, tra cui frode telematica, adescamento di tangenti e tentata estorsione, e condannato a 14 anni in una prigione federale, 21.800 dollari di multa e due anni di libertà vigilata. Sta scontando la pena come detenuto numero 40892-424 presso il Federal Correctional Institution Englewood a Littleton, Colorado.

Oddly enough, Blagojevich was not the first Illinois governor to be accused of a felony, nor the second, but the fifth just in the past 100 years. These include George Ryan in 2007 for conspiracy, racketeering, tax fraud and making false statements to the FBI; Otto Kerner in 1973 for bribery, conspiracy and perjury; Dan Walker in 1987 (a while after his 1970s term) for bank fraud; and Lennington Small in 1929 for embezzlement. All but Small were convicted. Blagojevich has the distinction of receiving the longest sentence.

5: Former Saints Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams Encouraging Players to Injure Opponents

Gregg Williams watches a play during a game between the New Orleans Saints and the San Diego Chargers at the Louisiana Superdome in August 2010.

In a less than sportsmanlike gambit, New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was caught on tape the night before a 2011 National Football Conference (NFC) postseason championship game encouraging his players to injure opponents on the San Francisco 49ers. The incident was recorded by documentary filmmaker Sean Pamphilon, who caught less than four minutes of the roughly 12-minute speech on tape. Pamphilon was following the team for a documentary about former Saints player Steve Gleason, who is fighting amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease.

During the recorded portion of the speech, Gregg mentions several 49ers by name or number, sometimes even directly referencing injuries they have sustained. His language is aggressive and specific in the ways players should go after their targets: "Little 32, we want to knock the [expletive] out of him," as well as, "We hit [expletive] Smith right there," pointing to his chin, according to Pamphilon. Shortly thereafter, while rubbing his thumb, index and middle fingers together to indicate payment, he apparently puts a bounty on Alex Smith, saying, "Remember me. I've got the first one. I've got the first one. Go get it. Go lay that mother [expletive] out." He also tells the team they don't apologize for the way they play and refers to the NFL as a production business.

Gregg Williams and many players, with the knowledge of at least one other coach and the general manager, reportedly kept a pool of around $50,000 to hand out rewards for injuries, including $1,500 for knockouts (knocking a player entirely out of the game) and $1,000 for cart-offs (causing a player to be removed from the field). Paying out for game performances, even allowed actions like intercepting passes, is against NFL rules. Suspensions were handed out to Saints staff members, including one year for head coach Sean Payton, six games for assistant head coach Joe Vitt and eight games for general manager Mickey Loomis. The Saints were also fined $500,000 and lost their second-round 2012 and 2013 draft picks. Williams's speech apparently came after the NFL warned the Saints that it was being investigated and needed to stop the bounty program, but before the penalties were meted out.

The tape went public the same day Payton, Vitt and Loomis were scheduled to have appeals heard by the National Football League (NFL) regarding their punishment for the bounty scheme. Their appeals were denied. Gregg Williams was suspended indefinitely, but did not appeal the decision.

Gregg Williams actually left the team after that game to work for the St. Louis Rams. And despite any dirty play, the 49ers won the NFC playoffs 35 to 32 against the Saints.

4: Sarah Ferguson Taking Money for Access to Her Royal Ex-husband

The British royal family has seen its fair share of scandal, and Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, Prince Andrew's ex-wife, is no exception. In 2010, News of the World (before it was shut down in the phone hacking scandal) had reporter Mazher Mahmood pose as a businessman and meet with Fergie. He taped her offering him access to her ex-husband in exchange for 500,000 pounds (more than $720,000), as well as possible future payments, saying she could open doors for him and the access would pay him back tenfold. The fake businessman gave her a $40,000 cash down payment on tape and said he would wire the rest. Prince Andrew, who acts as representative for international trade and investment for Britain, apparently knew nothing about the situation. His lack of involvement was reiterated by both his office and his ex-wife after news of the scandal broke. The Duchess made a public apology for her lapse in judgment when the tape came to light.

She and Prince Andrew divorced in 1996 after ten years of marriage . She was reportedly in debt to the tune of over $4 million at the time of her divorce, and nearly $1 million after her U.S. company Hartmoor LLC went under in 2009. She only receives around $20,000 a year as part of her divorce settlement. At the time of the scandal, she was living in Prince Andrew's home, Royal Lodge, near Windsor Castle. Aside from her royal marriage, she is also known for her charity work, writing children's books and her former role as spokesperson for Weight Watchers.

3: Princess Diana's Squidgygate

Even the people's princess was not immune to scandal. When a 1989 phone call became public in 1992, it became clear that all was not well in her marriage to Prince Charles.

Lady Diana Frances Spencer married Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, on July 29, 1981 in a televised fairytale wedding, making her the Princess of Wales when she was only 20 years old. The couple had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. The royal relationship proved tumultuous, however, with rumors of adultery on both sides. They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996. Princess Diana was lauded for her charity work and adored by the public, but despite her ongoing popularity, she wasn't free of scandal.

In 1992, a 20-minute cell phone conversation between Princess Diana and childhood friend James Gilbey, Lotus marketing manager and heir to a gin fortune, emerged. During the call, which was apparently made on New Year's Eve 1989, he told her he loved her and repeatedly called her "darling" and "Squidgy." On the tape, Princess Diana commented that her husband made her life torture and referred to him as "His Nibs."

The call was somehow overheard by two ham radio operators, Cyril Reenan and Jane Norgrove, on separate days, and recorded by Reenan, who sold the tape in 1992. The newspaper that bought it published a transcript of the call, and also allowed people to call a phone line to listen to the recording. Ken Wharfe, former bodyguard of Princess Diana who wrote a book about her after her death, accused the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) of recording the conversation and possibly playing it on a loop until it was picked up on ham radio. He even said that Diana called and listened to the recording herself. Wharfe stated that he was told Queen Elizabeth ordered an internal inquiry into the initial recording and the leak. An inquiry into the incident was reportedly vetoed by Home Secretary Kenneth Clarke.

Prince Charles had his own leaked cell call scandal over intimate conversations between himself and Camilla Parker-Bowles, dubbed Camillagate. The call was also apparently recorded in 1989 but mysteriously leaked shortly after the Squidgy tape. Prince Charles and Camilla have since married.

2: Washington Mayor Marion Barry Smoking Crack

Despite the drug scandal, Marion Barry managed to continue his career in Washington, D.C. government.

Washington Mayor Marion Barry Jr. had a dramatic rise and fall, and rise again. In the 1970s, he was a celebrated Civil Rights activist, District of Columbia school board member and city councilmember who even took a bullet while trying to defend a city building during a hostage crisis. He became mayor in 1978 and served three consecutive terms.

There were rumors of his drug use in the 1980s, but Barry's fall from grace came in 1990 when he was caught using crack cocaine on videotape. And it was no accident. In a sting operation that was part of a corruption probe, the FBI, in conjunction with Washington, D.C. police, had Barry's former girlfriend Hazel Diane (aka Rasheeda) Moore lure him to a room at the Vista Hotel on Jan. 18, 1990. Barry met Moore and an undercover FBI agent posing as a friend of hers. The FBI taped the encounter via hidden video cameras and audio recorders. On the videotape, Barry broached the subject of sex, which Moore declined, and then drugs, although he did it without referring to drugs directly. Barry said he didn't have any and asked if she did. The undercover agent provided crack to Moore, who gave it to Barry. Moore declined to use it, and Barry smoked it in a crack pipe and then suggested they go downstairs.

As he was calling his security guards, who were downstairs, FBI agents burst into the room to arrest him. Barry said that Moore set him up, in less than polite words, while the FBI was trying to Mirandize him. He asked what the charges were, and he was told cocaine possession.

During the trial, Ms. Moore stated that she underwent a religious conversion before the bust and that she was worried about Mayor Barry's health. Barry was convicted of only one of 14 charges, misdemeanor cocaine possession -- although not the one stemming from the sting operation, but rather a charge based on testimony from another witness, Doris Crenshaw, that he used cocaine with her in 1989. Barry was acquitted of an earlier possession charge. The other 12 charges, including multiple possession charges, one conspiracy to possess and one perjury charge, resulted in a hung jury and a mistrial. For the charge that stuck, he was sentenced to six months in prison.

Despite the scandal, Marion Barry rose to prominence again, winning back his city council seat in 1992. In 1994, he was reelected as mayor. All in all, he served four terms as D.C. mayor, and before, after and in between served as D.C. councilmember, a seat that he still holds as of summer 2013.

1: The Nixon White House tapes

President Nixon secretly taped conversations for posterity, but that practice ended up causing him all kinds of trouble.

The granddaddy of all audio recording scandals involved the 37th President of the United States, Richard Milhous Nixon. President Nixon secretly taped meetings and phone conversations that took place in the White House and other locations starting in 1971. All in all, he taped around 3,700 hours of conversations, apparently intended for posterity, and for the most part without the knowledge of the other people involved in the meetings.

In June 1972, several burglars were caught breaking into the offices of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., attempting to plant bugs. Two other men, G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt, apparently led them via walkie-talkie from a nearby building. Several of the men, including Liddy, Hunt and James McCord, had connections to the Nixon re-election committee. All either pled or were found guilty of the break-in. Liddy and Hunt were also responsible for an earlier break-in of the office of the psychiatrist of Daniel Ellsberg, the Vietnam strategist who leaked the Pentagon Papers exposing lies that led the U.S. to war. This group of White House-affiliated burglars were dubbed "plumbers" for their utility in fixing leaks. Washington Post journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein covered the Watergate break-in story with the help of multiple sources, including the one dubbed "Deep Throat," who in 2005 was revealed to be a former high-ranking FBI official, Mark Felt.

After the Watergate incident was potentially linked with the White House, two government investigations were launched, one led by a special prosecutor Archibald Cox, and another, the Senate Watergate Committee, led by North Carolina Senator Sam J. Ervin, Jr. In July 1973 during the Senate hearings, Alexander Butterfield, former appointment secretary to the president, revealed the existence of the tapes, after which Nixon stopped taping. The two investigative bodies requested the Nixon's recordings, but the president denied, citing executive privilege. He eventually gave them edited transcripts, which were damning enough on their own, but he continued to refuse to hand over the actual tapes and to deny any wrongdoing, including uttering his famous "I am not a crook" line.

Nixon's lawyers had to disclose that 18 and a half minutes were missing from one of the tapes, ostensibly accidentally erased -- at least in part -- by Nixon's loyal secretary Rose Mary Woods. In July 1974, the Supreme Court voted unanimously that Nixon had to hand over the tapes, and shortly thereafter impeachment proceedings began against him for obstruction of justice. The tapes did reveal shenanigans. The so-called "smoking-gun" tape contained a conversation from mid-1972 that proved Nixon was involved with the cover-up over Watergate from the beginning, rather than having just learned of it in March 1973 as he had maintained. Rather than face inevitable impeachment, Nixon announced his resignation on Aug. 8, 1974, two and a half years into his second term. He was the first U.S. President to resign. Vice President Gerald Ford became President, and a few weeks later granted Nixon a full pardon, despite the fact that no criminal charges were ever lodged against him.

Segments of the tapes have been released periodically over the years, and often reveal controversial revelations and language. The Watergate incident, aside from felling a president and making us all super cynical about politicians, also led many subsequent scandals to suffixed with "gate."

Author's Note: 10 Most Incriminating Secret Recordings

Because with the ubiquity of cell phones, not to mention security cameras, it is quite possible for any of us to be caught on tape at any time. It's pretty easy not to commit the obvious crimes, save speeding (although there are so many laws that we may accidentally be committing smaller infractions regularly). But embarrassing moments are harder to guard against. And there is no telling what conversations could be taken out of context, like Job's, "I killed Earl Milford." I've caught myself and friends discussing video game kills in crowded places like they were real. What must the nearby families have thought of us? Now they could just take out their smartphones and start recording.

Many of these famous cases were sting operations or clandestine recordings made for the purpose of catching someone in a crime or lie. And your average Joe is unlikely to catch the attention of a news outlet. But any of us can have our most awkward moments plastered on YouTube or Facebook. I'd say we should start moderating our actions and comments like politicians and celebrities, but that doesn't seem to be working out so well for them, either.
