Indicted UT Businessman Links Harry Reid To Bribery Attempt
Fox News ^ | January 12, 2013 | Tom Harvey and Robert Gehrke

Embattled St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson says new Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped broker a deal in 2010 in which Johnson believed he was to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid $600,000 to make a federal investigation into Johnson’s company go away.

But when the federal government filed a lawsuit Johnson thought he had paid to quash, he demanded Swallow return some of the $250,000 initial payment. Then, just days before the Nov. 6 election, Johnson engaged in a frenetic but unsuccessful effort to get Swallow to drop out of the race, saying information about what Johnson called a "bribe" would come out and force the Republican’s resignation if he became attorney general.

Swallow or Johnson? Which one ends up dead before the end of the year?

“Mormons all.”

And? ...and? i suppose that you are shocked that mormons could be involved in such shenanigans, right? i suppose if one lived under a rock, one would have thought that Harry Reid, being a mormon, was a “saint” in the secular sense of the word? can you imagine any other religion’s members engaging in such nefarious practices? that wouldn’t be very Christian of them if they did, would it?

Oh, not shocked at all...just waiting for the mormon defenders to jump in and post about how all the mormons they know are "saints" in the secular sense of the word.

Were you here during the general election when Romney was painted as the savior of the country?

That's not the way these things usually work.
When a corrupt businessman starts blabbing to the feds about a corrupt politician, it's not the politician's life that's in danger.

So how many times does this make for Reid?
Interesting these “business deals” with Reid always seem to be with other “mormons”. Just an observation.

Well, Reid has received awards from BYU and the SLC Corporation for being a good example of what it means to be a mormon.
So, I guess he is a “saint” and a recognized one to boot.

Can no longer post from the Salt Lake Tribune, but I think a link might be ok for a more thorough article on this subject.

Only Mormons claim to have a "LIVING PROPHET", and "priesthood powers" of discernment, among other things. The "temple recommends" are only given to those who have been interviewed and found worthy, by someone with "the gods'" own powers of discernment.

The fact that Harry Reid brags about having a temple recommend is proof that mormonism is a false cult.

It simply does not compute for these folks, they are BRAINWASHED. I know, I was there myself not 5 years ago. Here are two of their "prophets, seers and revelators"....

Never been Mormon but I certainly felt that I was shafted by former stake president Willard Mitt Romney.

Had a bishop with a vendetta against me. He believed that women should stay barefoot and pregnant and keep their mouths shut...I disagreed.

And, and and problem is you Mormon claim to be better than Christian, above us and all. Higher standard and all that rot.

As far as Reid don’t make me laugh. That crooked bastard still get all sorts of love from the righteous “saints” and even more from the very “prophets” themselves...

Nothing to see here, move along.

Nothing will come of this and even if Ried is guilty in some way, he will most definitely “skate” without anything done to him, Like Odumbo, he is teflon coated.

I wonder why Romney lost?

It was obvious to ALL that he was GOD’s choice over the evil Barak!
