The Stench of Corruption Stalks Harry Reid

Just another day in the annals of the criminal organization masquerading as a political party:

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) recommended for powerful federal posts three partners at a Nevada-based firm that donates to a nonprofit run by his current and former aides. Reid shepherded two judicial nominations through the Senate in 2012 and 2013 for attorneys at the firm of McDonald Carano Wilson. Both were confirmed after Reid fought on their behalf.

A third partner, U.S. Attorney for Nevada Daniel Bogden, was dismissed from the Justice Department in 2006. Reid led the successful effort to have him reappointed.

Hey, you say: just more logrolling at the World’s Greatest Deliberative Body, right? Um… not so much:

McDonald Carano Wilson is a corporate donor to the Clean Energy Project (CEP), a nonprofit founded by Rebecca Lambe, Reid’s top political operative, and Susan McCue, his former Chief of Staff. Reid has secured billions in subsidies for CEP donors. Reid frequently touts the jobs created by CEP donors to which the he has steered funds.

His work on behalf of McDonald Carano Wilson employees could fuel allegations by ethics groups that CEP donations appear to have helped earn Reid’s legislative backing. The firm did not respond to requests for comment…

Reid’s advocacy… marks another example of the senator using his perch in Washington to benefit donors to his former aides’ green energy group. The numerous instances in which he has done so raises red flags, according to Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center, an ethics watchdog.

“It is run by Reid insiders, funded by those who want Reid’s political favors, and there’s a track record of Reid dispensing favors to those who fund it,” Boehm told the Washington Free Beacon.

Honestly, the level of corruption in the Democratic Party is just stupefying. They don’t even try to hide it anymore. From Bill Clinton, whose mentor in Arkansas was the Prohibition gangster Owney Madden; to Nancy Pelosi (Baltimore mafia princess) to the Chicago Mob stooge Barack Obama to Reid — the living embodiment of Sen. Pat Geary himself — the party is run by criminals for criminals. Is there not a single lawyer expert in the RICO statutes on the GOP side? Or is the Stupid Party too dumb to notice what’s happening?
