Abramoff Names Harry Reid As One Of 6-8 Seriously Corrupt DEMOCRAT'S

Abramoff Reports to Prison; Officials Focus on Reid, Others

As convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to federal prison today, a source close to the investigation surrounding his activities told ABC News that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was one of the members of Congress Abramoff had allegedly implicated in his cooperation with federal prosecutors.

A spokesperson for Reid, elected yesterday as the Senate Majority Leader, said the senator had done nothing illegal or unethical.

"We have no idea what Abramoff is telling prosecutors to save his skin, but I do know that these kind of old allegations are completely ridiculous and untrue," Sen. Reid's spokesman Jim Manley told ABC News.

A source close to the investigation says Abramoff told prosecutors that more than $30,000 in campaign contributions to Reid from Abramoff's clients "were no accident and were in fact requested by Reid."

.............................Harry Reid D-NV


Abramoff has reportedly claimed the Nevada senator agreed to help him on matters related to Indian gambling.

The Associated Press reported earlier this year that Reid wrote at least four letters helpful to the tribes that had contributed money to his campaign.

Reid has denied there was any connection between the letters and the contributions and has said he is a longtime opponent of certain kinds of Indian reservation gambling.

The AP reported that Reid acknowledged "routine contacts" with Abramoff's lobbying partners and intervening to block rival tribal casinos.

The AP also reported that Abramoff's billing records showed extensive contact with Reid's office over a three-year period in which Reid collected more than $68,000 from Abramoff's firm, partners and clients.

Prosecutors have said that Abramoff's cooperation is essential to the corruption investigation, but, so far, they have brought only one prosecution against a member of Congress connected to Abramoff, Republican Bob Ney of Ohio, who resigned.

The source said prosecutors do not intend to rely solely on Abramoff's account of events, and his allegations against Reid and others will not necessarily result in criminal charges.

Sources close to the federal investigation say Abramoff has offered testimony about his contacts with "six to eight seriously corrupt Democratic senators" and an ever larger number of Republican members of Congress.

In addition to Reid, the sources say Abramoff has been most closely questioned about his contacts with Sen. Conrad Burns (R-Mont.), who was defeated in last week's election.

"Being defeated may have been one of the best things that ever happened to Burns," said a source close to the investigation. "There is much more interest in members of Congress who are still in office," the source said.

Burns, who received more than $150,000 in Abramoff-connected campaign contributions, has strongly denied any wrongdoing and returned the money.

Sen. Reid has been an outspoken critic of the connections between Abramoff and Republican legislators.

In a speech earlier this year, Sen. Reid described it as "a program where the lobbyists paid and the Republican members of Congress played."

The Justice Department said it would have no comment on the ongoing Abramoff investigation.

Well we tried to warn you people that voted for these Lunatic's! Now we ALL have to pay the price for the next 2 friggen years! Why wasnt this story by Brian Ross told BEFORE the Election?

But if it's a Republican it's all over the front page, if it's a Democrat it get's buried! Unfortunatley for us they wait till after a major Election to tell us about it! Figures.

Reid and the rest are just another example of the complete hypocracy that is going on. The libs said they wanted to get rid of the culture of corruption.

The problem with that is; we now have gone from bad to much worse because the liberal press pumped these greedy and very, very corrupt people up like they were the messiah but they are nothing more but criminals elected to office. Reid, Pelosi, Murtha, Hastings, it's all the same old crap they just stuff all their office appliances with the cold cash now.

You know Marie, that picture you have of Harry Reid is so appropriate. It used to be that the corrupt politicians would actually just line their pockets and look over their shoulder to see if anyone was watching them stick a couple of wrapped stacks or an envelope of bills in their jackets or pockets. Now it's just like the picture suggests. Harry Reid, walks away with a wheelbarrow full of his corrupt takings and he flips the taxpayers off and says I got mine go get your own! They don't even try to deny it anymore, it's just plain outright arrogance of power.

It has gotten much worse and now that the democrats think they are free to scoop up on all the payola they have missing out on for the last 12 years they will make the all the corrupt democrats before them look like amatuers.

Ried will get a pass just as Dems ususally do when caught up in unethical, illegal activities or even murder. Do the names Bill Clinton and Ted Kennedy ring a bell ?

Reid's land deal was kosher, and he took donations from his Indian Gaming constitutants in his own state of Nevada, imagine that? If that were illegal every congress person would be in jail right now. This isn't even smoke, it's just hot air. Actually, it's typical republican lies, dirty tricks and swiftboating.

And why do you guys only focus on Reid or Pelosi or democrats? Abramov is about to finger Karl Rove big time, yet, you guys are playing "Haley's Comet."

Get used to it mudkitty. democrats have practiced corruption to the point that would make a Roman Emperor blush.

Let's see what they come up with on Rove missmuddkitty. Justifying bad behavior with other bad behavior does not wash here missmuddkitty so push that "huff po" crap somewhere else. If Rove is dirty, corrupt and broke the law then put him in the cell right next to Harry Reid, Reynolds, Murtha, Pelosi and the rest.

It's only a matter of time before the consevatives form a coalition from both parties and put all these fricken thieves in jail.

Liberals talk a good game and they've had the press on their side for all these years but I've been exposing their stupidity,corruption and hypocracy for just as many years now, even before Rush Limbaugh got a national radio program.

People are attracted to personalities like Limbaugh because they say the things that we are thinking for the most part.

All those I democrats I mentioned above are just the symptoms of the illness that affect are system of government.

The bigger problem is the people are letting them get away with this outright thievery. Only a small group of party faithful show up to vote because most people figure they can't change people like Reid, Reynolds, Murtha and Hastings from filling their wheelbarrows with their ill gotten gains while giving us the finger because of the willingness of the mainstream press to outright lie about these thieves just to get them elected.

When 40 percent of the people that are eligible to vote actually show up at the polls or take a modest interest into what is going on this what we get.

Mudpuppy,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Reid took money from Abramoff and refused to give it back! It will be interesting to find out why.

Hell NO I'm not saying Abramoff is honest, and I think whoever was involved with this miserable SOB ALL should go to jail, Democrat's included.

It's just YOU on the left seem to think this "Culture of Corruption" is all about Republicans when YOU are the party that started the Culture of Corruption to Begin with!

Look, at Ted Kennedy, Bill Clinton, Robert "KKK" Byrd, John Murtha, William Jefferson, Gerry Studds, Barney Frank, etc. etc. etc. I mean the list is endless.

I know there has been some corrupt idiot's in my own party and I'm glad they got booted, but before you clean up OUR house, you should have whipped out the the ShopVac size Vacume on your own!

When I saw that picture I had to have it because it reminded me of exactly what you just said.

But if these nut's think they are going to get away with it, they need to think again!

I certainly hope Reid doesnt get a pass, but you are right the MSM isnt even covering this much.

Oh yes Clinton, Kennedy, etc.. ring alot of bells and people need to be reminded of this.

JG - it's hard to begin to describe how wrong you are. Even your "and's" and "the's" are radical rightwing republican lies.

History buff, you're not.
