The mainstream media is starting to weigh in on the latest reporting about the investment practices of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The Los Angeles Times Sunday reported that the Nevada Democrat paid $10,000 five years ago to obtain full control of a 160-acre parcel in northern Arizona that could be worth up to $300,000.

The Times says Reid then sponsored legislation that would have been helpful to the businessman who sold him the land. This follows an Associated Press story about another land deal a few weeks ago. Reid's office says the land deal was perfectly legitimate.

But a Chicago Tribune editorial is titled, "Harry Reid, Land Shark" and calls the sale "unseemly." The Orlando Sentinel's editorial is titled "No Role Model" and says — "if they are serious about ethics, Senate Democrats need to find a more deserving standard bearer." The New York Sun calls it "Reid's whitewater" and "a corker of a controversy."

Its this kind of quid pro quo ...... Congress for Sale or Rent which we need to urge our Senators and Congress to come down on like a ton of bricks.:censored:

Reid hung-up on the reporter who first brought this to light and tried to ask him questions. This happened many months ago.
