Harry Reid told reporters today that Romney had “sullied” their shared Mormon faith.
The Hill reported:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said during a conference call Monday that he agreed Mitt Romney had “sullied” their shared Mormon faith with his comments about “47 percent” of Americans, secretly recorded during a fundraiser earlier this year.
Reid was discussing an op-ed published in the Huffington Post by Gregory A. Prince, who argued that voters should “not judge Mormonism on the basis of the Mitt Romney that was unveiled to the public this week.”
“He is not the face of Mormonism,” Price wrote.
Reid, on a conference call with reporters, said he agreed with Price, according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
“He said that Romney has sullied the religion that he, Prince and Romney share,” Reid said. “And he’s so disappointed that, in his words, ‘It’s a good religion and he’s hiding from it.’ “
