Why Hasn’t Harry Reid Resigned?

The Minority Leader is in a pickle.

A former staffer became a whistle-blower, and revealed shady
involving a land transaction that netted a cool mil.

Today, the ML declared that he was reimbursing his campaign war chest for funds which had been converted to pay personal expenses. That is illegal, and the ML knows it. Still, according to the ML, it’s not his fault.

Reid labeled the AP story as the “latest attempt” by Republicans to affect the election. AP reported last week that it learned of the land deal from a former Reid adviser who had concerns about the way the deal was reported to Congress.

On the FEC violations:

Reid’s office said the listing as salary was a “clerical error” and that the use of campaign money for the residential fund was approved by his lawyers.

In his arrogance, the ML feels he is somehow entitled to not only brazenly skirt the intent of the law, but also to blame his political opposition when called on it. Reid’s position of leadership in the minority party does not grant him special privileges to flaunt the law.

It is sauce for the gander time, and Harry Reid should resign. Now.

  1. Bwahahahaha, Nuke, you killin’ me here! You want a Democratic leader to do the right thing? Yeah, those ol’ Samurai could give him a clue about the right thing. Harry, you got a sharp knife handy? No? A dull one would be even better! Damn! Um, then how about piece of paper, maybe you could deliver yourself a paper cut and squeeze lemon juice in it?

    Heh. Do the right thing indeed.

    Okay, I’m stopping!

  2. Oops…posting hurriedly while working does NOT WORK.

    Sorry, Nuke! I’ve swamped your comments.

  3. Leseee, Swampwoman “swamps” the comments section.
    It does have a certain ring to it doesn’t it?

  4. Dingy Harry…henh.
    I harken back to the article in the Peoples Cube, if you never claim to have virtue, then you will never be a hypocrit.
    I would like to dedicate this song to Dingy Harry…maybe he live it.

  5. Oh, please. Dems are not to be penalized for actual crimes (like aiding terrorists, for example) while they want to try people for expressing doubts about global warming.

  6. Time for SwampMan to return to Case de Swamp, and soon all will be right with the world.

  7. He’s got a case of Swamp???
    Is it anything like this?
