A Utah businessman accused of running a fraudulent $350 million software scheme says the state attorney general arranged a deal to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a federal investigation into the software business disappear.
St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson, who's accused of billing hundreds of thousands of consumers for products they never ordered, told The Salt Lake Tribune that newly elected Utah Attorney General John Swallow set up a deal in 2010 for Johnson to pay $600,000 to people connected to Reid.
Johnson says be believed that Reid, a Nevada senator, might intervene in the Federal Trade Commission's investigation.
Swallow strongly denies the allegations and maintains he only offered to connect Johnson with a lobbying firm. At the time, he was serving as Utah's chief deputy attorney general.
The FBI and Reid's office would not comment on the allegations.

Probably only one of hundred deals that Reid’s involved in.
Everything 'til now has been arranging the chessboard.
I believe a lot will happen soon, and quickly.
Would you buy a used car from this man?
No investigation please.
It will only be a waste of time.
One can only wonder..... where is Michael Corleone when you need him?
Anyone willing to take a bet who won’t go to jail?
They don’t call him “gringy harry” for nothing.
Harry POS Reid ALERT!
That nasty little man is a nasty little man who is a nasty little man.
What a vile man he is. And they keep electing him.
“A Utah businessman accused of running a fraudulent $350 million software scheme says the state attorney general arranged a deal to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a federal investigation into the software business disappear.”
Harry Reid, the Magician, is well-known for making things disappear, eg., three budgets so far, and the Constitutioon...
Dingy Harry is not smart enough to scheme.
I'll be interested to hear who these are. Reid's typical M.O. is to use his children and lawyers as cut-outs.
What? Ratface Reid a crook? I’m stunned at this development!
