Harry Reid in Frequent Contact with Abramoff, Received Donations

While the media is positively giddy about scandal-ridden former lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s admission that he met several times with President George W. Bush, a report from the Washington Post indicates he was also in frequent contact with the Senate office of Harry Reid, Democrat from the State of Nevada, and even collected $68,000 in campaign donations from Abramoff’s firm. The hypocrisy of this is that while Reid has severely criticized Republicans who were in contact with the disgraced former lobbyist, he has refused to return any of the money he received from him in campaign donations.
