Harry Reid (D-Idiot)gives granddaughter $17K from campaign funds.


Recommended Posts

In a repeat of the same crime that sent Jesse Jackson Jr to prison, Harry Reid’s campaign used $17,000 of campaign funds as a gift to his granddaughter, and covered it up in a mandatory disclosure document by omitting her last name (Reid). Karoun Demirjian of the Las Vegas Sun reports:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has reimbursed his campaign nearly $17,000 paid to his granddaughter for “holiday gifts” in late 2013, after the Federal Election Commission insisted that his campaign clarify why the money was spent. The FEC sent the treasurer for Friends of Harry Reid a letter insisting that he “must include a brief statement or description … to clarify the following description: ‘holiday gifts.’”
Reid’s campaign operation listed that description on its year-end report for two separate disbursements to Ryan Elisabeth of Berkley, Calif., on Oct. 23 — one for $5,416.93, the other for $11,370.00.

“Ryan Elisabeth” is actually Ryan Elisabeth Reid, the majority leader’s granddaughter, a spokeswoman for Reid confirmed Tuesday.

“I thought it would be nice to give supporters and staff thank-you gifts that had a personal connection and a Searchlight connection,” Reid said in a prepared statement. “But I have decided to reimburse the campaign for the amount of the expenditure.”

Ryan Elisabeth Reid, 23, is the oldest child of Rory Reid, Harry Reid’s oldest son, who ran an unsuccessful race to become Nevada’s governor in 2010. It is unclear whether she currently lives in Berkley, Calif., because her LinkedIn page lists her as being a "performing arts professional" in Brooklyn.

 

Will Reid claim that he did not know of this appropriation of campaign funds for his granddaughter? That would strain credulity. But if he did direct campaign funds be used for the oldest child of his oldest child, that would be a crime. Ask Jesse Junior. He can be reached at the Federal Correctional Complex in Butner, NC.

And also,

 

Word on the street is that Harry Reid hasn't paid his taxes for the last 10 years.

 

And he hangs out with drunk secret service guys. And why aren't there any drunk women in the secret service? Why aren't there ANY women in the secret service? Discrimination? The secret service discriminates against women. And they hate Lilly Ledbetter.

 

But they've had sex with her.

 

And she looked good, but they were drunk, so you know....

Nevada power broker sentenced for Reid campaign donations

 

RENO, Nev., Oct. 1 (UPI) -- A federal judge has sentenced a Nevada lawyer to two years in prison for making illegal campaign contributions to Sen. Harry Reid.

Harvey Whittemore, a Nevada lawyer, philanthropist and political power broker, was moved to tears during an emotional sentencing hearing Monday in U.S. District Court in Reno, Nev., when he begged Judge Larry Hicks for mercy.

 

Whittemore was convicted in May after a jury trial of two counts of making illegal campaign contributions and one count of forcing Reid's re-election campaign to file false campaign disclosure reports to the Federal Elections Commission. The jury deadlocked on a fourth count of lying to FBI investigators.

 

Prosecutors said Whittemore, 61, used friends and associates to make large donations to the Senate majority leader's campaign to skirt campaign contribution limits.

 

Dominic Gentile, Whittemore's lawyer, cited his client's long history of charitable acts in arguing for his client to avoid prison time but Hicks said the evidence was "unmistakable."

 

"No one is above the law," Hicks said. "The evidence is unmistakable. There simply must be a just punishment."

 

In addition to the prison term, Hicks fined Whittemore $100,000 and sentenced him to 100 hours of community service. Hicks said Whittemore has until Jan. 31 to report to federal prison -- enough time to wind down his law practice.
