Harry Reid has a few ethical issues of his own that someone should ask him about

On the Senate floor would be nice.

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:

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.

Ed & Fred Doumani, associated with the Chicago Mob, gave at least $6,000 to Reid and the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Kirk Kerkorian, former owner of Caesar’s Palace, has Mob ties and gave over $100, 000 to Reid or DSCC.

Steve Wynn, connected to the Genovese mafia family, gave Reid at least $19,000.

Sam & Edgar Bronfman. Sam was a bootlegging associate of Meyer Lansky. Edgar is his son. Both have made substantial contributions to Reid.

Joseph Alioto. Alioto is a San Francisco politician related to Milwaukee Mafia boss John Alioto and was implicated in the Koreagate bribe scandal. He and his wife gave $5,000 to Reid.
Update II Mitt Romney responds to accusations made by Senator Harry Reid (D-Bag).

I had to laugh at Rush today. When he came back from one of his "obscene profit time-outs", he said he just got a phone call from a guy who claimed he was at Harvard with Obama. He claimed Obama got the lowest grades ever seen at Harvard, and would often miss classes, only to be covered for by his professors, and given good grades.

Rush said he asked the guy who he was, but the guy just hung up on him. Then he said something like "I don't know who it was, and can't verify this....but, now it's out there. And it's up to Obama to provide proof it isn't true."

The campaign should demand the Senator's office provide documented and authenticated evidence proving the Senator's allegations, or, after a suitable delay of 12 hours, Senator Reid will henceforth be referred to as "The Liar Senator Reid" .

Gee, the Senator from Vegas has mob connections?

I had always assumed that. He did have a pseudo-walk-on in "Godfather 2", y'know...

Does the name "Spilatro" ring any bells, Harry?
