    Maybe old scum bag is about to get what he deserves . The guy is a disgrace to the US Senate. Two of the people were Reb and if all proves correct all of them need to go to jail.

    "

    Now, Reid has been linked to a new massive bribery case that had two state attorneys general arrested already.

    The Washington Times reports:

    Utah prosecutors on Tuesday filed criminal charges against two former state attorneys general in a court filing that makes tantalizing references to a possible pay-to-play influence scheme involving U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

    Utah County District Attorney Sim Gill charged former Attorneys General John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff with numerous felony state crimes, including bribery, acceptance of illegal gifts, evidence tampering and a “pattern of unlawful activity.”

    The charges were expected for months, and both men were taken into custody. Mr. Shurtleff served for many years as Utah’s top law enforcement official before retiring in 2013 and was succeeded by Mr. Swallow, who resigned in controversy after just a year. Both are Republicans.

    I'm no fan of Reid, bit if this is all they've got, don't hold your breath.

    " The documents detail efforts by a federally indicted Utah businessman, Jeremy Johnson, to secure meetings with Mr. Reid and Mr. Hatch, where Mr. Johnson hoped to enlist their help in fighting off an investigation by the Federal Trade Commission."

    Your first article quotes this one.

    Harry Reid is an idiot and it wouldn't surprise me, but nothing here makes it clear he or Hatch did anything wrong.

    It is interesting however that you ignore the Hatch piece.

    Hijack alert:

    This shows you how bad the economy really is. The gambling cartel can't keep their paid representative as protected as they used to.

    I would bet money 90% of politicians can have their name attached to a pay to play scheme, its part of the game.

    if he did it ring him up, thats goes for any of them

    None of the politicians go to jail. The only one I can think of is Jessie Jackson Jr?

    The allegations have been around a year or two. It looks there's three possibilities:
    1. Johnson is making it up.
    2. Johnson is telling the truth and the two attorney generals wanted money to give to Reid to make the investigation go away.
    3. The two attorney generals told Johnson that he should give them money and that Reid was in on it, but Reid wasn't and they were just going to keep the money themselves.

    I just hope MSNBC spends at least 10% of the time blowing this as far out of proportion as they did the Chris Christie Bridge issue.

    But that would require their collective heads to explode on a nightly basis again for three months straight. A hard feat to duplicate.

    Actually I would think BREAKING would be used for a shocking/surprising bit of news. That a politician is involved with bribes falls under--

    The sky is blue.
    Japs bombed Pearl (no matter what the sticker says).

    Etc. Just not a surprise ;)

    Not really breaking news, since the fat white liberal media is mostly ignoring it. Gee, I wonder why.

    CORRUPTION RULES!!!!!
