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."
"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.
