Abramoff Implicates Dirty Harry

After Abramoff announced yesterday that he had contact with 6-8 seriously corrupt democrats he came out today and implicated ole culture of corruption himself, Harry Reid. (ABC News) 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 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."

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… 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.

This news comes shortly after the AP
caught Harry Reid making unethical transactions with some of his mafia connected friends in an effort to acquire $1.1 million in a shady property deal.

And I assume because so many Democrats called for Republicans who had connections with Jack Abramoff to resign, they will not hesitate to now call for the resignation of the soon to be majority leader. It’s not like the Democrats are hypocrites or anything… right?
