Harry Reid’s name surfaces in bribery case. “Embattled St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson says new Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped broker a deal in 2010 in which Johnson believed he was to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid $600,000 to make a federal investigation into Johnson’s company go away.” Probably just a guilt by association thing – we’re sure the media wouldn’t even bring it up if Harry were a Republican.

Yea, right. It only took until paragraph 2 to tell that Swallow is a Republican.

The crooked senator on the gaming commission in the movie Casino was partly based on Harry Reid. That is a fact!

Same for Godfather II?

“Godfather II” was made in 1974, and Nevadans have only suffered with Mr. Reid as their U.S. Senator since 1987. So unless Francis Ford Coppola knew of young Reid through the Bohemian Club, the Bilderberg, the Illuminati or the Morman Mafia I would say nay.

So then, Reid patterned himself after the Senator in Godfather II?
But then Orwell called our current situation long ago, he just had the year wrong.

A couple of things that are a 100% certainty.
1. Hairball Reid is completely guilty of this and many other similar corruption deals.
2. This charge will go absolutely nowhere. As this is business as usual in the Kapital of Korruption.
3. The mediapukes will be outraged that anyone would suggest such a thing about one of the people they so admire.
4. Taxes are going up on the middle class and the obscenely rich will not be touched. (Yeah, I know it’s already happened, but I called it several weeks ago. Then again, that was a no brainer to everyone except the low information dolts.)

For Dirty Harry this is just an resume enhancer.

Yet again, Reid name pops in a fraud and extortion of a private citizen in order to enrich himself. This union puppet is long over due for a new scenery. The one from a prison cell looking out into the yard.

With der leader in the WH his chances for a pardon are almost none existent. Maybe he can strike a deal, sort of like the one Ron Brown and Vince Foster struck.

Everything about Harry Reid seems to scream corrupt. He is a wealthy man, & seems to have nothing but power & influence to trade on. As a public servant, that tells me he’s on the take & playing a rigged game.
