Mr. Independent Becomes Dirty Harry

Posted by zaphriel on May 30, 2006

Reid_harry_110304.jpgOMG, Dirty Harry is at it again. Somehow in his world when a Republican does something that even slightly resembles an ethics problem, Mr. Reid is pounding the podium over it. But when he’s found with his hand firmly in the cookie jar, he claims super human integrity…

Reid Attended Boxing Matches Paid By Nevada Athletic Commission


WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid accepted free ringside tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission to three professional boxing matches while that state agency was trying to influence him on federal regulation of boxing.

Reid, D-Nev., took the free seats for Las Vegas fights between 2003 and 2005 as he was pressing legislation to increase government oversight of the sport, including the creation of a federal boxing commission that Nevada’s agency feared might usurp its authority.

He defended the gifts, saying they would never influence his position on the bill and was simply trying to learn how his legislation might affect an important home state industry. “Anyone from Nevada would say I’m glad he is there taking care of the state’s No. 1 businesses,” he told The Associated Press.

Well Mr. Reid, I’m from Nevada, and I think the whole thing stinks from your swindling of the Nevada populace with your “Independent Like Nevada” campaign right down to your grasp of what ethics are.

Mr. Reid, you’ve consistently been an embarrassment to the state of Nevada, it’s high time you thought about who’s interest exactly you have been representing, the people of the state, or your own.
