In a desperate attempt to distract Nevadans from her ongoing ethics investigation, embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley released her second ad which claims all credit for a new veterans hospital currently being built in North Las Vegas.
- “It took Shelley Berkley … to finally get us our veterans a new hospital.” (Medals, Berkley For Se
If this commercial sounds familiar, it’s because two years ago her liberal mentor Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid claimed he was the sole reason for the new hospital.
- “The VA hospital is being built for one reason, Harry Reid.” (Sen. Harry Reid Works Tirelessly for Nevada Veterans, Reid For Senate, Accessed 05/09/12)
If you get an opportunity to speak with Ms. Berkley – which is incredibly doubtful given that she refuses to go on Nevada Newsmakers or Face-to-Face – it’s worth asking the Congresswoman how she believes she is the reason for the new hospital, given that Harry Reid previously claimed it was himself.
