Reid Family Values: Prime Suspect in Beatdown of Elderly Senator Arrested for Assault on Cop
That would be Larry Reid, brother of the Sage of Searchlight, corruptocrat Harry Reid:
Senator Harry Reid's 73-year-old brother has been arrested and charged with driving drunk and hitting a police officer. Larry Reid was arrested for DUI about 12:40 p.m. between Boulder City and Searchlight in Nevada. Mr. Reid was also charged with battery of a police officer, driving across a median, resisting arrest, not wearing a seat belt and possession of a gun while under the influence of alcohol.A trooper saw Larry Reid's Lexus SUV in the dirt median with the engine still running, Patrol spokesman Trooper Loy Hixson said.
The Nevada Senator's office released a statement confirming that Larry Reid is the Democrat's brother, saying only that it is 'a private matter.' Details of the arrest were not immediately available since the official complaint had not been filed with the court.
Meanwhile, his older brother, Senator Harry Reid, who recently suffered an accident while exercising, said in a video message last week he would not seek re-election next year, and threw his weight behind New York Senator Chuck Schumer to replace him when he leaves office.
Larry Reid is now the prime suspect in the beatdown of his brother, according to Power Line's John Hinderaker:
On Monday I got a phone call from a man named Easton Elliott. We talked briefly on Monday, and have had additional telephone conversations since then. Elliott* is a businessman who lives in the Las Vegas area, and he thinks he knows what really happened to Harry Reid. This is the story as he related it to me:
Elliott spent a portion of last New Year’s Eve at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in Henderson, Nevada. His AA group has meetings every hour on New Year’s Eve, along with a pot luck supper. There were approximately 20 people present at the meeting during the events described below.
Some time between 10:00 and 11:30 p.m., a man entered the meeting. His appearance was striking: there was blood on his clothing, beginning around his midsection. His left hand was swollen. He appeared to be somewhat intoxicated and was visibly agitated. He introduced himself as “Larry.”
In a group discussion that was heard by a number of people, Larry said that he had just had a fight with a family member. Larry said he had been at a family get-together, and he didn’t remember much about the fight because he had blacked out. When he came to, he was rolling on the ground, fighting with a family member, and his clothes were bloody. Now, he said, he was frightened that the Secret Service would come after him.
So Hillary assaulted Bubba during the Clinton presidency -- something for which, by the way, anybody else would have gone to jail -- and now Larry whales the stuffing out of Harry, causing the nation's leading corruptocrat to abdicate his Senate seat and endorse Sen. Snidely Whiplash -- excuse me! I mean Chuck Schumer! -- to replace him as minority leader.
The country really is in the best of hands.
