More Senile Harry Sleaze

From the LVRJ: Assemblywoman Lucy Flores, a Democrat running for lieutenant governor, won the endorsement of the Latin Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee, but only after last-minute intervention by her biggest benefactor — U.S. Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev.
The Latino BizPAC had considered a dual endorsement of both Flores, D-Las Vegas, and her Republican opponent, state Sen. Mark Hutchison, R-Las Vegas, who enjoys support within the chamber because of his business-friendly views.
But at the last minute, after Reid lobbied the Hispanic business leaders by phone, the Latino BizPAC late Friday decided to officially endorse only Flores, giving her a boost. She already enjoys significant support in the Hispanic community as one of the first Latinas to win an Assembly seat in the Nevada Legislature, in 2010.
Several sources familiar with the behind-the-scenes discussions confirmed that Reid intervened to promote Flores, but they spoke on condition of anonymity, saying they fear retribution by the Senate majority leader. Reid has an out-sized influence on Nevada politics and runs the state Democratic Party.  http://www.reviewjournal.com/politics/elections/reid-quashed-latin-chamber-s-gop-endorsement
Not that it really matters but the Latino BizPAC is a sell out to Hispanics and Hispanic business people, for whom they supposedly represent.  If I were Hispanic, I would be more pissed at the Latino BizPAC than Reid.  Reid is senile and doesn't know what he is doing but Latino BizPAC and it's leaders are sell outs and wimps.
