During the 2012 campaign season, Harry Reid’s continual insinuations that Mitt Romney was some sort of criminal was merely psychological projection.

From the AP:

A former Nevada powerbroker was convicted Wednesday of making illegal campaign contributions to U.S. Sen. Harry Reid.

A federal jury reached the verdict in the case against real estate developer and once powerful lobbyist Harvey Whittemore.

The jury returned unanimous guilty verdicts on charges of making excessive campaign contributions, making contributions in the name of another and causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission.

Whittemore faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.

Naturally Reid knew nothing about any of this, and he may opt to take the Obama approach:

    "This campaign contribution is lost."

    Good play on "This war is lost" !

    Give Reid a break….he had to take the contribution to find out if it was legal or not.

    O/T…MSM organizations finally decide that off the record meets with Holder are a no go (except for Politico):

    Glenn is reporting that FOX and the Wash. Times may go.

    I`d like to see them go and then publish everything that was discussed !

    Apparently WaPo and Huff Po are miffed enough at the AP targetting that they have finally balked.

    Glenn thinks Holder is done. I do too ! Barry delivered the Kiss of Death with his, "Holder has my complete confidence …." statement a week or so back. Rush, Steyn and some others believe he`s safe as the race of choice !

    We`ll see !

    With the press, never assume that anything is off the record.

    Do y`all remember the story of Harry`s great, great Uncle Remus Reid, horse thief and train robber ? The Reid family has a long history of illegally gotten money !

    "A low level volunteer accepted the contribution. Hairy Reed didn't know about it until it was in the paper."

    And… that's why they're called a "bagman"! Whenever I have say a multi-million dollar deal in the works or a commercial paper loan on the line, I generally just go to the first bank teller that says 'next', don't YOU?

    Part-timers never ask questions…

    I tend to agree with Beck on this one. I think Holder is gone as dear leader will just replace him with someone else just as bad while hoping that the dismissal will appease the cheerleaders in the press.

  10. Truesoldier__ on May 31st, 2013 11:13 am

    It's kinda like in the military. If you need something done that might not be totally legit…have a private do it.

  11. Truesoldier__ on May 31st, 2013 11:13 am

    And those are only the stories that we know about…..

    The admin. will surely HOPE it all calms down with Holder out, but too great damage has been done. Holder will be prosecuted, at least for perjury, and the investigation will continue.

    This time, there are too many scandals for even the most loyal msm to ignore.

    Harry Reid and his fellow lying liars who launder money for him.
    Tarred and feathered Democrats sticking together like Obama, Clinton, Gore, and now Reid, that good ole' lyin' MORMAN from Searchlight.
