Harry Reid says he’s received mail threats at home


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday that hes received threatening letters at his home, with nearly all of them citing Scripture. He did not say who the letters came from.

 

Reid, D-Nev., described them to reporters after being asked whether recent threats hes received are related to Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher who has resisted federal attempts to collect overdue grazing fees and who Reid has criticized.

 

Its hard for me to comprehend how ugly, vile, vulgar and threatening people are, sending letters to my home and making other threats, Reid said. So I dont know whos mad at me.

 

U.S. Capitol police have said theyre investigating the mailings.

 

Bundy owes more than $1 million in grazing fees and penalties for letting his cattle use government land over the past 20 years. Earlier this month, the federal Bureau of Land Management stopped trying to round up Bundys cattle after protests by hundreds of Bundy supporters, some of them armed.

 

Reid has called Bundy a hateful racist after the rancher suggested that African-Americans might have had it better as slaves picking cotton.

 

On Tuesday, Reid defended the Bureau of Land Management.He also said hes spoken to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, FBI Director James Comey and others about Bundy, but he did not say specifically what was discussed.

""why is harry so interested in this ?""

 

We cant have someone who ultimately violates the law, who believes the United States is not a valid government, that its a foreign government and all the other weird things that hes said, Reid said.

No doubt Reid has issues.

Harassing the feebleminded is not Christian.
