How Deep Is Harry Reid's Corruption?

Back in March of 2010, “Harry: Money, Mob & Influence In Harry Reid’s Nevada” (written by Daxton Brown) was published, and contains some pretty damaging stuff about our US Senate Majority Leader. Brown, highlighting some of the darker sides of Reid over at Free Republic, suggests that Reid simply can not plausibly separate himself from “a substrata of money, mob and influence in Nevada going back fifty years.”

A section of the back cover says this:

One simply cannot be the most powerful Politician in Nevada without either knowing where the corruption begins, or willfully turning a blind eye to its corrosive nature.

We can all certainly agree with that. But a closer inspection of what’s inside the book brings to light a sordid tale of Reid’s graft and corruption going back as far as the 70’s, as told in the book by former Campaign Manager Don Williams. Williams’ story connecting Reid to Mustang Ranch Owner Pimp Joe Conforte, including trash bags of cash and car trunks full of “extra” absentee ballots, has now hit the streets in an exclusive at Your Politics News:

In what was clearly a calculated political move intended to preempt what he expected would be a torrent of attacks on his own credibility, a former long-time campaign manager for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) conceded that he took a polygraph and planned to go public “sometime soon” with claims that his former boss took illegal cash from a brothel owner to fund his political campaign, YourPoliticsNews.com has learned.

The actual copy of the polygraph is HERE. The truth of the story, the questions of the timing of its release, and the fact that Reid’s alleged corruption charges here are 40 years old would stand up well as Reid and his handlers go about discrediting this story as it spreads. I’ll leave it to YOU to decide the minutiae of this matter.

I can’t let go 2 fundamental questions though:

1- Why do we need to send Reid back to Washington, on general principle, after the extent to which he has failed the American people and his constituents in Nevada…independent of the accuracy of these charges from Brown and Williams and others?

2- How can we be expected to believe there isn’t some truth to them, and if there is, isn’t it about time we really clean that swamp he and Pelosi promised they’d clean once they got the jobs? If the answer is yes, why not start with the swill of corruption that percolated to the top over the past several years, and get rid of Reid himself?

    It's Obama, Reiid, and Pelosi that doubled the debt, not Bush. It's Obama, Reiid, and Pelosi that doubled the unemployment rate, not Bush. It's Obama, Reiid, and Pelosi that lowered our credit rating for the first time in history, not Bush.

    Mitt needs to show his tax returns .. and make harry out of a lair instead of just calling him one ...

    He's a total crook who thinks he has a right to be a crook,because he's a liberal Democrat.

    Harry looks like a crook.......And Pelosi looks like she needs to be in a mental hospital......

    Reid has not had the best interests of his state or the citizens of this country as a goal in his decisions for decades, if ever. All he cares about is what will benefit him in the end.
  • Harry 2010/08/24 15:44:55
    What I want to know is how Reid can speak with such passion in 1993 about the utter stupidity of allowing anchor babies then six years later have a complete change of heart and apologize for his speech?

    This illustrates not only the degree to which Reid's "principles" are for sale but also shows the extent to which the Democrat party will stifle and suffocate the individual views of its members and why electing a Democrat to any office is never safe.
  • TinCanS... Harry 2010/08/25 02:44:25
    I think Harry Reid has spend to much time on the Las Vegas Strip. Then he comes to Washington where the atmosphere is still a fantasy world.

    Reid is both inept and incompetent. Reid is the epitome of Peter Druckers's theory that a man rises to the greatest degree of his inability.
  • ronbo51 TinCanS... 2010/08/24 15:03:51
    have no idea how he even made it this far.... does not say much for the collective intellegience for the state that elected his dumb A$$ !

    He sure is not a good Morman. As corrupt as they come, but then who in Washington is not corrupt. I hope the people in Nevada can get him out!
  • Theresa Dora Ra... 2010/08/24 00:00:07
    Ron Paul is not corrupt nor is Jim DeMint! Nor is the Sen from OK! so there are a few honest men in Congress.
  • tootien Theresa 2010/08/24 05:27:54
    everyone in DC needs to be reminded that they work for us not the other way around, too bad ethical is the exception and not the rule - my state has a pretty okay retiring senator, reasonably conservative,real good on the 2nd Amendment, but still part of the good old bring home the bacon crowd

    I certainly agree that Harry Reid needs to go. Not back to Washington, but straight to hell! His corruption is a bottomless pit, along with Nancy Pelosi and her crooked ass husband that we taxpayers have helped to make a multimillionaire.
  • don 2010/08/23 12:32:15
    Having lived and worked in Nevada I can say without so much as a single shadow of a doubt that Harry , his money, thus his influences, his friends and his being above all that we call law is so large, deep, vast and unending that this is a monster or some type of cyborg, a machine if you will. It really is a Dr. No scenario.
