Foley Who? Dems Begin To Implode

Major Mike (Hat Tip Mr. Atos)

Harry Reid continues a long standing Dem tradition of profiting from land deals.

"Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

"In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews."

Ooops...I forgot.

"Kent Cooper, a former Federal Election Commission official who oversaw government disclosure reports for federal candidates for two decades, said Reid's failure to report the 2001 sale and his ties to Brown's company violated Senate rules"

Ouch, that might leave a mark in the November elections, as the Dems can no longer claim to live in their scandal-free bubble.

Seems Reid isn't exactly sure of the meaning behind the phrase...Culture of Corruption...maybe this is one that the GOP may agree with the Dems on. We should file this in the "Abuse of Power/Corruption" folder (here), I don't think The Democratic Party, in their altruistc effort to uncover corruption in politics, would mind. I think his picture would fit on the folder cover nicely.

Let's get past Foley, Reid and others...the GWOT is the most important issue...not some MSM boosted "scandal" that takes the focus off of peril we face out into the future.

Vote Republican.

Dare I be the first to say it?! "Ried Must Resign! First he as Senate Minority leader until this such time as he is clear of charges. And his Seat if he is indicted.

What's could for Delay is good for de Reid.

My previous comment is proof positive that one should not blog and talk on the phone at the same time.

Note how the bias of the MSM operates here. The AP story now claims to have been published at

Wed Oct 11, 7:50 PM ET

Surely that is when it was a updated. But, you might recall Mike that I sent the Yahoo/AP link to you around noon on Wednesday. What other big news event happened Wednesday Morning ca 11:00 AM PT?

MSM News agency release negative stories about Democrats in the shadow of larger stories. When they are about Repoublicans, they occur in the dawn of an election cycle.

The New York Times went so far as to print a blatant CYA... one that would NEVER have appeared on behalf of Tom Delay.

NY Times: Senator Offers to Amend Financial Forms

Oops, I broke the law? And tried to conceal it? Well let me just fixee-fix it.

How many of you believe a Federal prosecutor would allow you to fixee-fix such a thing? But, then Cultural ethics and integrity are nothing more than what we as a people demand them to be.

As one FReeper put it, "New York Times covering for their boy, the Repubs won't mention it, and it'll disappear by Friday."

That would make the system broken at the bend.
