Looks Like New Senate Majority Leader Might be in Trouble Already

New Senate Majority leader, Harry Reid, seems to be in trouble already. Apparently, Mr. Abramoff has implicated him.

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."

Abramoff has reportedly claimed the Nevada senator agreed to help him on matters related to Indian gambling.

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 reported that Reid acknowledged "routine contacts" with Abramoff's lobbying partners and intervening to block rival tribal casinos.

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.

Senator Reid seems to be a corrupt individual. He also had some questionable land deals in Nevada.

Will he resign? Will Democrats circle the wagons around him? Is a corrupt Democrat the same as a corrupt Republican?

What is Jon Tester's position on this. He nailed Burns on the Abramoff scandal. Will he do the same to his new Leader? We shall see...

Congratulations, Democrats, for selecting the most corrupt Senator as your new Majority Leader!
