DescriptionU.S. Sen. Tom Harkin's campaign manager admitted Monday night that the campaign had obtained a transcript of a secretly taped meeting of Greg Ganske and his supporters, then passed it along to a journalist.

"We made a mistake, and we're sorry," said Jeff Link, who previously had denied knowing where the journalist, Kathie Obradovich, had gotten the transcript.

"We take full responsibility for releasing it to the press," Link said.

He said a "junior staffer," whom he would not identify, had obtained the material from a person who was promised confidentiality by the staffer.
