Harry Reidís victory may have been due to violation of federal campaign laws
Examiner ^ | November 7, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Harry Reid’s victory over Sharron Angle this past Tuesday may have had a great deal to do with the senator’s campaign breaking not only federal campaign law, but, just to make things worse, criminal law also. According to the Justice Department itself, as recently as this past Friday, it is currently looking over a complaint that Angle’s lawyer has filed, demanding that Reid be investigated for what appears to be coordination between his campaign and a corporation, Harrah’s casino in Las Vegas. The complaint is based on damning e-mails that were exchanged between executives at Harrah’s casino and a staffer working for the Reid campaign. If the allegations are proven true, it may confirm what some people suspected after Reid’s surprise, come-from-behind win (he was consistently down in the polls before last Tuesday’s voting). Namely, that Reid did a lot more than just get all his supporters to the polls in a magical, last-effort push.

Holder and Obama are the Captain and the Turk sitting at the table scarfing up our freedom but with no Michael Corleone coming out of the rest room to set things right.

They have many attached to IV’S on Federal money. Cut off the dough supply. The fastest way to sanity would be refusing to raise the debt limit.

Those of us who voted against him are not surprised. SEIU controlled the voting machines.

Cover a story has a double meaning to reporters I’m sure this story will fade fast from the media.

I am not going to Las Vegas. Take that you union idiots.
I have free choice, sorry you did not get the memo.

Why do we even have election laws, honestly? They never seem to be enforced, and if they are, it is always years after the fact when the damage is done.

Politicians won't take election laws seriously because none ever go to prison for breaking them.

Vegas is still suffering from Zero’s trip here. The unemployment rate is 14% and we have the highest foreclosure rate in the nation.

Reid “winning” means he ran out the good people who were honestly working, and that left the shills.

What we need are more visitors to help bring the employment up so that people can buy homes again. If your attitude about this valley spreads, it will be a ghost town in ten years.

Harry didn’t get corrupt here. He got corrupt in DC.

The government of our country is the most blatant and largest criminal organization we have and they operate with impunity.

Could Congress appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Nevada election if Holder refuses to enforce the rule of law in voter rights again?

Voter fraud should be a federal offense.
I’d say 10 years in Leavenworth at minimum.

That is a given. It was because of violations of election laws.

But then again, as has been demonstrated again again over time, laws do not apply to Democrats.

Hey Nevada, congratulations. You have the worst unemployment rate in the country, and you just re-elected a man who will do his best to keep that unemployment rate high. Again, congratulations. Here in Wisconsin we dumped one of the idiots responsible, Russ Feingold. And you re-elected that chump Reid. Unbelievable.

Ooooh, I hope Reid gets nailed to the wall with this one.

I think we need Reid to stick around and Pelosi, too. Together with the kenyan they will be ever more glaring reasons to repeat 2010 in 2012 with a multiple.

We have THE GOVERNOR OF NEVADA. We have NEVADA GAMING COMMISSION and STATE GAMING CONTROL BOARD..

There are a variety of other sources of power that can reel in the evil Hairy Reed.

Thats the message us conservatives need to give Harry. With all the states jumping on the gambling “bandwagon” there is less need to go to Vegas and now a good reason not to.

Don’t blame Nevada! WE didn’t vote him in! He controls the SEIU, which in turn controls the maintenance on the voting machines. There were many complaints during early voting that Reid’s name automatically got the tick when the card was inserted into the machine.

Sharron Angle was consistently ahead of Reid in the polls, and he pulls it out of a hat? Not the voters!!

Do more research and stop blaming Nevada. We don’t want the piece of slime in our state. Period.
