Harry Reid Changes Beat-Down Story – Brother Larry Still a Suspect, Arrested for Assault
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. (WND)
Senate Minority leader changed his story today on his “workout accident” that caused multiple broken bones on the right side of his face, damage to his right eye, bruising down the side of his face, a concussion, and several broken ribs.
Previously Harry Reid has said he suffered the broken bones and loss of sight when an elastic exercise band broke, causing him to fall over.
Today Harry Reid told anchor Jorge Ramos that the exercise band “slipped,” rather than “broke.”
Ramos: You said recently that the accident had nothing to do with your decision to retire.
However, we are seeing the consequences of what happened. What really happened? Was it really with an elastic band?
Reid: Yeah, I had a big, that thick (Reid gestures with his hands), that I had been using for about four years and I was, you know, trying to maintain my, uh, firmness, and, uh, that was my weight training. I was doing that in my new home here in Nevada and a big metal hook that came out from the wall that was hooked there that the strap had no handle on it, slipped, spun me around, uh, about, oh I guess four feet (Reid points with his right hand to the wall of the interview room) and so I smashed my face into a cabinet so hard that uh…
Ramos: It looked like somebody had hit you.
Reid: I am so fortunate that, um, it wasn’t over just a fraction of this way and hit me in the temple.
Ramos: How’s your eye?
Reid: I am sightless in my right eye.
Meanwhile, the Capitol Police, which had a security team on duty with him in his Henderson, Nevada home, is refusing to release the internal reports it has on the timing of his treatment for injuries.
And, Harry Reid’s brother, the main suspect in his brutal beating, was arrested drunk assaulting a police officer earlier this week.

Larry Reid is reportedly the prime suspect in Harry Reid’s beating.
Power Line reported:
On Monday I got a phone call from a man named Easton Elliott. We talked briefly on Monday, and have had additional telephone conversations since then. Elliott* is a businessman who lives in the Las Vegas area, and he thinks he knows what really happened to Harry Reid. This is the story as he related it to me:
Elliott spent a portion of last New Year’s Eve at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Henderson, Nevada. His AA group has meetings every hour on New Year’s Eve, along with a pot luck supper. There were approximately 20 people present at the meeting during the events described below.
Some time between 10:00 and 11:30 p.m., a man entered the meeting. His appearance was striking: there was blood on his clothing, beginning around his midsection. His left hand was swollen. He appeared to be somewhat intoxicated and was visibly agitated. He introduced himself as “Larry.”
In a group discussion that was heard by a number of people, Larry said that he had just had a fight with a family member. Larry said he had been at a family get-together, and he didn’t remember much about the fight because he had blacked out. When he came to, he was rolling on the ground, fighting with a family member, and his clothes were bloody. Now, he said, he was frightened that the Secret Service would come after him.
