Skip to comments.A deal in the desert for Senator Reid? (Is Sen. Reid a Felon?)

BULLHEAD CITY, ARIZ. It's hard to buy undeveloped land in booming northern Arizona for $166 an acre. But now-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid effectively did just that when a longtime friend decided to sell property owned by the employee pension fund that he controlled.
In 2002, Reid (D-Nev.) paid $10,000 to a pension fund controlled by Clair Haycock, a Las Vegas lubricants distributor and his friend for 50 years. The payment gave the senator full control of a 160-acre parcel in Bullhead City that Reid and the pension fund had jointly owned. Reid's price for the equivalent of 60 acres of undeveloped desert was less than one-tenth of the value the assessor placed on it at the time.
Six months after the deal closed, Reid introduced legislation to address the plight of lubricants dealers who had their supplies disrupted by the decisions of big oil companies. It was an issue the Haycock family had brought to Reid's attention in 1994, according to a source familiar with the events.
If Reid were to sell the property for any of the various estimates of its value, his gain on the $10,000 investment could range from $50,000 to $290,000.
It is a potential violation of congressional ethics standards for a member to accept anything of value -- including a real estate discount -- from a person with interests before Congress.

I have heard from a friend He molested the horses at medieval times
An unnamed source says he beats his wife... that on top of being a crook.. Reid’s a typical dem .../s
The LA Slimes is just now figuring out that Reid has ties to the mob and is a crook?
Reid: He who acts like a sly criminal is indeed the same. Reid is a rotten communists greedy piece of crap.
He’s a pedophile rapist. But, I can’t prove that conclusively.
only the males, as I heard it.
It must be true.After all,"the word is out".
Article is from 2007.
It’s quite telling that he hasn’t passed a budget in over 1100 days, but brings up his frieds’ issues on demand. Reid is a crook, and Issa should place him next in line for hearings on this matter.
Now tell me, in one word, just whats going to happen to Mr Reid because of this action?.....Times up
Is he a democrat?
Then, it is a question that needs not be asked.
Reid is so mobbed up that he's a walking, talking blackmail puppet. Axlerod could order him to strip naked on the Senate floor and tar and feather himself and he would do so instantly.
Read Freeper Fedora's excellent investigative thread to understand this human slimeball, and why he is willing to be a tool in this libel campaign: he has NO CHOICE. He is a Mafia and Chicago Rat Mob puppet.
Dirty Harry Reid is so well known as a Mafia puppet, that he was featured in the movie Casino as "Harrison Roberts."
I don’t know whether it’s true or not but that is what’s going around out there. Harry should ask the FBI to make his FBI file public so we can clear this up. We’ve seen over the years how politicians seem to develop a fondness for “interacting” with “young people” after they’ve been in Washington for too long.
I love in Bullhead City. This was a big story at the time. Of course, there has been development around the land in question paid for by you and me.
If there had been a REAL attorney general in 2007, or earlier, lots of these people would be in jail today. But for some reason neither party will go after their fellow corrupt politicians. I wonder why that is.
Where exactly in Bullhead is this?
They say that the Rhodes development that was going on here in GV had HR connections.
