Question: I'm a bit confused so verification would really help. Agent Daly becomes smitten with Carlton so when he speaks to her in her office alone, she agrees to not audit Hilary if he sleeps with her. Carlton then produces a tape recorder with the entire conversation. He says that if she doesn't exonerate Hilary, he'll file sexual harassment charges on her. By threatening to sue Daly if she doesn't exonerate Hilary, isn't he in fact blackmailing her. Plus, aren't tape recordings considered inadmissible as evidence?
