Dingy Harry Report

New post thread name, to keep track of the slimest politician to ever come out of Washington. Trust me, this boy is his own worst enemy.

Today:

"WASHINGTON - Pssst. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid. What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas after all.

A day after The Associated Press reported Reid accepted free ringside seats to boxing matches from a Nevada agency trying to influence him on federal boxing legislation, the senator offered his own ethics justification to a home state audience in Las Vegas.

And he vowed to keep taking such gifts.

But Reid's comments Tuesday quickly reached Washington, where several ethics experts concluded the Senate leader had misstated the Senate rules to his constituents.

Within hours of being questioned by AP about the ethics experts' assertions, Reid's office abruptly reversed course and acknowledged Wednesday night he had misspoken about the ethics rules.

The Senate leader also has decided not to take free boxing seats in the future even though he still believes it was ethical to do so in 2004 and 2005, Reid's office said.

"In light of questions that have been raised about the practice, Sen. Reid will not accept these kinds of credentials in the future in order to avoid even the faintest appearance of impropriety," spokesman Jim Manley said."


Hmmm, the Dan Rather, it's the "Fake but Accurate"stand. Right Harry. Now about that $66,000 bucks you got through Abramhoff?

How about it Harry?
