As part of his job, Senator Harry Reid (D-Nev.) helped arrange for some federal grants for some social service agencies. The ReviewJournal.com reports:

The money that led to the indictment this week of two Las Vegas pastors and the wife of one of them came from federal grants arranged by Sen. Harry Reid in September 2001, a Reid spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Moving to distance Reid from a possible scandal, aide Tessa Hafen said the senator sought the money on behalf of a nonprofit social services agency and not for the churches or persons who have been accused of mishandling the money.

Let’s see if the main stream media (MSM) goes after Reid with the same vigor they are going after DeLay. Since he is a liberal Democrat, this will be a good test for how “balanced” they really are. I bet you won’t hear about this again. He is a Democrat and the press will leave it alone and nothing more will be said about this past a few posts in a few blogs.

  • Oh come on now. This is comparing apples to oranges. I do agree the MSM better pick up on this and inform the public. I have a feeling that thanks to the DeLay and Frist investigations, there will be hell to pay on the Democrat side. These people have got to stop it, this is ridiculous. A pissing contest gets nothing solved.

  • This is just about as trivial as the charges against Delay. I think it’s very telling that last night John Stewart didn’t make fun of Delay, he made fun of the triviality of the charges.
