This is an old post from the Hot Air Green Room, but it’s a pretty comprehensive list of Dirty Harry’s forays into crony capitalism, nepotism and graft.
Like many, if not most, wealthy politicians, Reid never created anything – he just abused his office by skimming something off the top of everybody else’s endeavors.
Update: Hey, I also heard that Harry Reid has mob connections…
Reid has accepted money from many mob-connected people:Update II Mitt Romney responds to accusations made by Senator Harry Reid (D-Bag).
Morris Shenker, a mob attorney associated with the St. Louis Mafia, Meyer Lansky, Jimmy Hoffa and the Dunes Hotel. He funneled campaign money to Reid through his daughter Patty.
Moe Dalitz, associated with the Cleveland mob. He gave Reid $1,500.
Irwin Molasky & Merv Adelson. These were Dalitz partners in the Rancho La Costa development. Molasky has given at least $15,000 to Read and Adelson have given at least $40,000 to either Reid, his leadership committee or the DSCC which Reid controls.
