Suppose I'm not too pleased with my Congressman's stance on an issue, and that I plan on calling his or her office. Is it legal to record a phone call made to the office of my Congressman (or Senator) in New York State, without telling them? Said office may be either their local office or their Washington office. Does it make a difference if I make the phone call from within the state or district (maybe I'm in New Jersey for the day)?
And while we're at it, is it legal to publish this audio recording online or send it to journalists?
