I would call Harry Reid Benedict Arnold, but I don’t want to demean Benedict. Kids always pay a price for crook parents.
harry, we always knew you wuz a crook.
The smell in the Capitol rotunda is not the tourists.
It’s dirty Harry Reid.
Translation " it really sucks when you get caught"!
If I understand this ... harry sends the money, out of his campaign stash, to his granddaughter?!?
“As I have already said, ...”
“Now, simmer down Granny.” Jed
Being a Mormon, how many wives, kids, and grandkids does good old hairy have?
Dingy goin’ down?
This MUST be the dirty work of The Koch Brothers!!!
“unwanted attention on the internet. This has gone too far and it needs to stop now”
yes harry, get those meanies on the internet to stop it.
Look like I’m wrong ... harry is giving the money to his campaign for campaign spending. Way to go harry. More legal ... illegal moves, though legal. These congresscritters are smart and dirty and act legally while being illegal. Wow, What a Country!
