Harry Reid’s Headache: Legal & Political Problems Embroil Democratic Senator

15 March 2014 / 8 Comments

We have to hand it to Harry Reid; he apparently has no qualms about being the slimiest politician in Washington. This truth challenged Senator appeared to rent out the floor of the United States Senate after accepting $20 million from environmental groups – and being promised up to $100 million for 2014 elections by radical California billionaire Tom Steyer.  Hey, living at Ritz-Carlton ain’t cheap.

Of course, Reid has no problems calling Americans who disagree with him and express their views “un-American” on the very same Senate floor that he seemed to sell for $100 plus million.  Rich Lowry commented, “For a powerful national officeholder to stoop to such personal invective against private citizens seems bullying and itself vaguely un-American.” For Reid, the Duke of dirty money, it is also hypocritical.

Yesterday it came to light that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has received campaign contributions from people and political action committees linked to multiple companies suspected of violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Joel Gehrke pointed out that the Center for Responsive politics records “reveal that Reid has accepted campaign money from individuals and political action committees associated with 10 companies linked to Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations.” Ironic, considering that Reid’s choice attack is, “un-American,” isn’t it?

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington
