Report: Harry Reid fingered in bribery case

Embattled St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson says new Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped broker a deal in 2010 in which Johnson believed he was to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid $600,000 to make a federal investigation into Johnson’s company go away.

But when the federal government filed a lawsuit Johnson thought he had paid to quash, he demanded Swallow return some of the $250,000 initial payment. Then, just days before the Nov. 6 election, Johnson engaged in a frenetic but unsuccessful effort to get Swallow to drop out of the race, saying information about what Johnson called a "bribe" would come out and force the Republican’s resignation if he became attorney general.

Johnson’s allegations come less than a week after Swallow took the oath of office. Federal agents have interviewed several Utahns about Johnson’s relationship with Swallow, among other issues, according to those interviewed. The FBI would not comment.

Harry Reid fingered...

Yuck

I was thinking the same

I was thinking the same thing... sounds like a really ugly porn flick.. I bet nancy pelosi would watch that...

Need Reid out of the way to pass gun control

I'm sure Reid is a scum bag who is guilty of all sorts of corruption, but I find the timing of this interesting. Reid has the power to hold up any new gun control legislation. Jam up Reid and he plays ball....

i'm too lazy to check myself

at this moment.
is harry reid against gun control?
i don't know what i'll do if i have to say something nice about him.

Not necessarily against gun

Not necessarily against gun control but he has a decent working relationship with the NRA.

This all might be true...

There is no doubt that Reid, and most of our politicians are corrupt as can be. Unfortunately, right now there is no justice in America. Said corruption has found power of our highest courts and easily over the lower ones.

The answer is public awakening, the solution is either a non violent extermination of corrution or a violent one. We'll see what happens....either way, I have a good feeling that peace, justice, prosperity and Liberty will soon return to America, if not most of the world.

Please change the title

I don't need a mental image of Harry Reid being fingered.

Go get him.

That isn't all Reid should be in trouble for.

Call me
