One of Crybaby Harry Reid's big donors is in big trouble with the feds.
From the LVRJ: FBI agents are investigating whether power broker Harvey Whittemore funneled tens of thousands of dollars in illegal campaign contributions through his employees and family members to Nevada federal candidates as far back as 2007, the Las Vegas Review Journal has learned.
Allegations have surfaced in the investigation that employees of Whittemore's former company, Wingfield Nevada Group Holding Co., and its subsidiaries contributed to the campaigns and were reimbursed by Whittemore with company money the same or next day, sources said.
Contributions made on one date -- March 31, 2007 -- to the re-election campaign of Sen. Harry Reid, the Democratic majority leader, have attracted the interest of FBI agents, sources said.
On that day, Reid's campaign received $115,000 from about two dozen Whittemore employees and their family members, most of whom each contributed the maximum allowed $4,600, according to federal campaign reports. The employees also included Whittemore family members.
The $115,000 makes up the bulk of at least $166,350 -- or 69 percent -- of the contributions that Whittemore and those tied to him through the Wingfield Nevada Group gave the Reid campaign between 1985 and 2010, the campaign reports show. http://www.lvrj.com/news/whittemore-investigation-stretches-to-2007-contributions-139119334.html
Dirty Money Harry Reid may be Reid's nickname now. I think it is time for an ethics investigation by the Senate ethics committee along with a special prosecutor/John Doe investigation.
What is it with Nevada Senators? John Ensign was a pervert in office and Dirty Money Reid has been a disgrace to the State of Nevada.
I think it's time for Reid to resign.
