Harry Reid's Friends - Birds of a Feather,........

From a Tea Party News Network (TPNN) artivcle by Greg Campbell a few weeks ago with the headlines: "Nevada Developer Found Guilty for Illegal Campaign Contributions to Harry Reid"

Harvey Whittemore, a Reno, Nevada, businessman has been found guilty on three counts of making illegal campaign contributions to Nevada Senator and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Whittemore, who maintains powerful political connections, has made a fortune from land development and it has been widely speculated that his land dealings have been greatly aided by political connections.

Whittemore has been found guilty on three of the four counts concerning unlawfully funneling more than $133,000 in campaign contributions to Sen. Reid. The jury has deadlocked on the fourth count. Jurors have told the judge that they have been unable to reach an agreement on whether or not the power broker willfully lied to the FBI. The jury sent a note to U.S. District Judge Larry Hicks, saying, “Judge Hicks, We have three counts resolved and one count we are deadlocked on. Even after a lengthy discussion we cannot resolve. How should we proceed?”

The judge has sent the jurors back for further deliberation.

The charges stem from a 2007 scheme where Whittemore funneled the money to Sen. Reid through third-party participants such as friends and family members to conceal the source of the campaign contributions.

How can it be that politicians like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Al Sharpton and others take political office then expotentially increase their net worth? People say that the last act of politicians in a dying country is to loot the treasury - is this what we are seeing?
