Harry Reid Acts Like Mafia Consigliere - Requests Payments for His Campaign

Politico is reporting a story which illustrates just how corrupt and brazen some progressive politicians are. Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is flexing his power as the Progressive Mafia Consigliere (under Progressive Mob Boss Obama). After threatening Wall Street with progressive socialist reform, Reid hits up Wall Street for contributions (payments) to his campaign. Consigliere Reid makes it clear that he will remember as he and his minions extends invitations to Wall Street firms. His suggestive message is clear - Pay me now or I will make you pay more later. Wall Street is being approached by more than one member of the Progressive Mafia,  It is also being threatened by an Obama's lieutenant who threatens to "break up large Wall Street banks."
-------------
Eamon Javers, Politico reports: On Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid accused Republicans of “making love to Wall Street” during the financial regulatory reform debate. But just a day earlier, at least one Wall Street firm received a request to contribute $2,500 to Harry Reid’s re-election campaign.

An invitation to the fundraiser, sent to a Wall Street firm, was obtained by POLITICO.

Reid and Republicans have been trading charges about cozying up to Wall Street for weeks, with Reid going after his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell for meeting with Wall Street execs and McConnell returning fire about a Reid fundraiser in New York.

But Reid’s spokesman Jim Manley said Reid isn’t “taking money from Wall Street PACs right now.” He explained that Reid’s campaign has a very large mailing list, and “just because they receive an invite it doesn’t mean they are being solicited.” [Yea we hear you - wink, wink.]

The invitation shows that the event, billed as a “pre-primary breakfast,” is hosted by Assistant Majority Leader Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and 14 other Democratic senators. The 7:45 a.m. session on May 19th will be held at the Liaison Hotel on New Jersey Avenue, just two blocks from the Capitol building.

The invitation requests donations of $2,500 from political action committee (PAC) “co-hosts,” and $1,000 from individual “co-hosts,” who would receive “priority seating.” General seating is offered for $1,000 per PAC guest or $500 per individual.

The invitation asks that checks be made to “Friends for Harry Reid.”

On the same day as the Reid event, lobbyist Lee Weingart of the LNE Group will be hosting a $1,000 per person evening reception at his lobbying firm for Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown. [Even Reid's lieutenants are asking for payments.]

An invitation to that event, too, was sent to a Wall Street firm. Brown is a co-sponsor of a measure that would break up large Wall Street banks — an idea that is extremely unpopular among Wall Street executives. “Senator Brown’s views are well known,” said Brown’s spokeswoman, Meghan Dubyak. “People who choose to support him know full well where he stands.” Weingart didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Bennett of Utah is out, and we are coming for Reid next. Spend all the DEMS money, it won't matter. Maybe, Harry, you would best step down now, before you are made a laughing stock.

Obama has probably promised Reid a job in the new Obama care if he loses for helping pass it. He will probably make 3 times the salary as he does as congressman now. Its all about the money to these clowns! They get the mine and we get the shaft!

Harry is on his way out. This is the politics of desperation. Even if he gets away with this, he will lose in November.

"Dirty" Harry Reid should be ultimately considered the Most BLATANTLY CORRUPT & INCOMPETENT politician in our History.

No Carl, that would be the anointed Obama, Reid is standing right next to him.

No Thomas, if you can believe it, he is standing left of him. Be sure to vote against Harry Reid in November! Maybe he will get the message then. He hasn't seemed to hear us up to this point.

Sharon is right as Reid does have the backing of the casinos and has received a lot of money from them. But there are now so many people who have moved here that hopefully they won't be swayed by Reid as some of the old timers are. They have kept Reid in office all these years. This election though I really think there are now enough of us here to vote him out even though he has a huge war chest to pull from. He really isn't a nice person but most don't really see who and what he is, sadly.

The civil war has started. Take back America. First incumbent was ousted last night. Let's keep the momentum going until they are all out, 100%!

I will stand by my opinion, that senate seats need to be limited to 2 terms after that,they must take a back seat and let someone with fresh ideas get on-board, that's a part of the prob with this country, look at the Kennedy seat he held it for over 40 yrs wt heck,come on do you think his pay went down in that span?,no so get these corrupt politicians out and lets get back to the fundamentals of this country and maybe god will spare us w.w.3!!!!!

Bennett said on t.v. he wouldn't change most of his votes even if he knew they would cost him his "career. In my opinion that's the problem, congress was not designed to be a "career," but that's how the ins view it once elected.

Also, To all the mother's and godmothers out there, Happy mother's day.
