HARRY REID EMBARRASSED: “Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid accepted free ringside tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission to three professional boxing matches while that state agency was trying to influence him on federal regulation of boxing.”

This seems like small potatoes to me — you’d have to pay me to go to one of those things, though Reid feels differently (“I love the fights anyways, so it wasn’t like being punished”) — but it won’t help that “culture of corruption” offensive.
