Flashback: Harry Reid Land Deal Under Scrutiny

Flashback. Washington Post October 12, 2006:
Harry M. Reid of Nevada, the Senate's top Democrat, said yesterday that he was in discussions with the chamber's ethics committee to determine whether he should amend his financial disclosure forms to include details of a real estate transaction that allowed him to collect $1.1 million.

The Associated Press reported that Reid gained a windfall from that sale of land in 2004 even though he had not personally owned the property for the previous three years. Reid also did not divulge the 2001 transfer of the land to a company he co-owned with a friend, a transaction that would normally call for a mention in Senate financial disclosure documents, the AP said.
No wonder Harry Reid doesn't want to release his tax returns. Can you imagine how much money he made from ObamaCare?
