Harry Reid returns campaign money paid to granddaughter for 'holiday gifts' - Las Vegas Sun News


How the hell does this man get away with this?! Same guy who falsely accuses Romney of not paying taxes, turns out to use campaign money as gifts for a family member and he faces no consequences?!?!!

This absolutely disgusting. Tell me if you liberals arent okay with this......or just defend it and excuse it.

He gets away with it by attacking people who have horror stories about obamacare as liars. He understands by lashing out at others the friendly MSM will not look in his closets for skeletons

This isnt even a skeleton. It's out. Sure, the news media will not tell the American people about it, but its no secret anymore. Yet, it looks like nothing will happen to him. He just gives back the money and thats that. WTH!!!??? He should be thrown from office. How can a friggin Senator get caught doing this, yet still be allowed to keep his job. You, I, anyone else does something like that and we are in HUGE trouble. But with him.....nothing.

So hey, if this is legal and okay, then Im going to go out, run for office and raise some cash, and gift the money to my girlfriend. And if I get caught, ill just give the money back. If Harry Reid can do it and face no prosecution, then why cant I?

Because you're not the Senate Majority Leader who is aligned politically with the head of the Executive branch and the U.S. Attorney General who would bring any charges.
