Harry Reid investigation

How could anyone ever suspect Harry Reid of corruption? This is probably just a smear campaign financed by the evil Koch brothers, right?

The Hill reports:

Reid under investigation by Utah attorney

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is under investigation by a local attorney in Utah.

Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings, a Republican, said the investigation of the Democratic leader is linked to a probe into former Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, who is facing public corruption charges but has denied wrongdoing.

“We are looking into allegations related to Senator Reid (and others) due to … the overlap in facts and multiple witnesses with the Mark Shurtleff case (Mr. Shurtleff himself even reported what he felt may be potential crimes) … [and] the direction of the evidence we have accumulated — it demands a thorough vetting by someone with authority,” Rawlings said in a written statement.

He added that “Shurtleff, Senator Reid and the others are presumed innocent and may in fact be innocent.

“However, to simply ignore and run from what has been presented by multiple witnesses and sources, and the potential impact on the Mark L. Shurtleff case, would mean I am either intentionally blind, or overly worried,” he added in the statement, which was first reported by the Salt Lake City Weekly.

Luckily for America, Reid is retiring the end of his current term.
