  1. Reid must be on drugs thinking this TOO was "ok".

    WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid has been using campaign donations instead of his personal money to pay Christmas bonuses for the support staff at the Ritz-Carlton where he lives in an upscale condominium. Federal election law bars candidates from converting political donations for personal use.

    Questioned about the campaign expenditures by The Associated Press, Reid's office said Monday he was personally reimbursing his campaign for $3,300 in donations he had directed to the staff holiday fund at his residence.

    When it comes to politics NV is like the wild west. Most places are, the public is lazy and apathetic. Ried is a slippery old school slimeball imo. Problem is, the new school slimeballs aren't any better.
     
  3. I always think of that prick Nevada state senator played by Dick Smothers who costs DeNiro his gaming license in Casino.....
     
  4. Holy shit!!!! A Reardon Metal moment!

    After my post I read this on IMDB: "Dick Smothers' character, Senator, is partly based on Nevada Senator Harry Reid, who was chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission. The scene in which Sam Rothstein is denied a license by the Nevada Gaming Commission is based on a December 1978 hearing when Harry Reid was the commission's chairman; some of Reid's statements are used in Smothers' dialogue. The scene was shot in an actual courtroom in the Clark County Courthouse, which was later closed in 2005."

    Wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
