By Reid’s Logic, Shelley Berkley Used Her Office To Enrich Herself, Until She Proves Otherwise
WASHINGTON — After calling the President of the United States a loser and the Federal Reserve Chairman a political hack, yesterday Harry Reid sunk to a new low when he hurled the baseless claim that Governor Mitt Romney hasn’t paid taxes in 10 years.
Reid’s undignified statement is remarkable, given that he’s claimed that his liberal protégé, embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley is innocent, despite the fact that 5 of her Democrat colleagues believe that it’s very possible the Congresswoman used her office to enrich herself.
“Once again Democrat Leader Harry Reid has embarrassed himself, the State of Nevada and his Democrat colleagues in the U.S. Senate by hurling a wild accusation that he cannot verify,” said National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) spokesman Jahan Wilcox. “Given Reid’s belief that one is guilty until proven innocent, then according to his logic he must believe Congresswoman Shelley Berkley is guilty of using her office to enrich herself.”
