Some questions: how did little Jiminy Cricket "track down" the person who took the video when the video wasn't published until he "tracked [it] down?" Did he get a list of the attendees and call each one to ask if they took any incriminating videos? Since this was a fund-raising event where people paid money to hear things they probably already agree with, who would take that video, and turn it over to a political hack who's gunning for the candidate they just paid money to hear? Cannot the political hacks just admit they paid thousands of dollars to attend a fund-raiser and secretly tape then edit video to exploit for political purposes? Can they not admit they decried the secret taping of ACORN and Planned Parenthood yet do the same?
