Skip to comments.In Nevada, the Name to Know is Reid (2003)

WASHINGTON It was the kind of legislation that slips under the radar here.
The name alone made the eyes glaze over: "The Clark County Conservation of Public Land and Natural Resources Act of 2002." In a welter of technical jargon, it dealt with boundary shifts, land trades and other arcane matters -- all in Nevada.
What Reid did not explain was that the bill provides a cavalcade of benefits to real estate developers, corporations and local institutions that were paying hundreds of thousands of dollars to his sons' and son-in-laws'firms, federal lobbyist reports show. . .

Senators and Congress Critters are American Royalty, and therefore are aboved the law.
Continue to pass GO, Harry, collect your $200 and carry on.
I am so in the mood for justice for this bastard.
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."
Keeping a watchful eye on the Tea Party?
Thank you for posting this. I remember these events, and have mentioned them from time to time here at FR, but never had the links.
Reid got federal land privatized so it could be developed for the benefit of several Nevada cities. That by itself is unusual; how often does the federal government sell off its land holdings?
But what I noticed was that the various towns involved, and some of the developers, were paying fees to $250k to $350k basically for the privilege of talking to Harry Reid.
Does Reid take bribes? This is how its done. It costs a quarter of a million plus to talk to him, and you pass the money through his son. Is it legal? He’s a lawmaker and his sons are lawyers; I’m sure they know where the legal lines are drawn. Is it moral and ethical? You can draw your own obvious conclusions.
Biden had the same arrangement with his son, who was also a “lobbyist”. His son made something like $1.7 million a year as a “lobbyist”. He said it was legal because if he had to talk to his dad, he would send someone else from his office rather than go personally. So when Biden talks about how poor he is, you can remember this. Later his son and his brother launched a takeover of a hedge fund, so they seem to have some money.
[Where’s the FBI when you need them? ]
Zero OWNS it..........
It's what the FBI now calls “Pay to Play.” The feds could put an accounting team on the myriad paper trails to get a picture of the conspiracy. Reid has a net worth listed at between $3 million and $10 million. How much is he hiding offshore or in gold coins?
I think he's really emblematic of what is wrong with our current constituted government. The posterchild for cronyism- a traitor on par with Obama The Oppressive. And WTH is wrong with Nevadans who keep enabling his treachery? They are essentially accessories through their actions of electing him and/or neglect in looking the other way for untold years while he steals our hard earned money for himself and fosters evil more generally.
Whew, I'm glad I got that off my chest. Thanks.
Wow, that is corruption! These Congress Critters are above the law!
