More Dirt on 'Dirty Harry'

Reid to reimburse campaign for donations:
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - "Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid has been using campaign donations instead of his personal money to pay Christmas bonuses for the support staff at the Ritz-Carlton where he lives in an upscale condominium. Federal election law bars candidates from converting political donations for personal use." Get the "full scoop" here.

The culture of corruption is not a "Republican problem." Nor is it a "Democrat problem." It is what it is. It is a Washington D.C. problem. It is a problem of politics. Politics stink. Shady characters who are control freeks gravitate to politics. They are in love with themselves foremost, and with power, and with the prestige that comes with it. And those who are not, most often, but not always, eventually fall into the lure of Washington politics and what it can do for them. That becomes what is most important to them, with their party's interest taking a back seat; but still of importance. And alas, what's good for the country, is a consideration that does not even show up on their radar screen. A good argument for term limits.


  • This is an ideal case for term limits. If we limit the exposure maybe we can save a few people from themselves. Perhaps we can even return the nation to the principles of people first. This is a nation where the people have been robbed of power through professional lobbyists and political action groups. Term limits will help level the playing field and return the country to the people.
