More documentation of the Senator Harry Reid (D-NV) connections with Jack Abramoff's clients and lobbyists at his firm....

Despite all protests of his innocence, more and more information is coming out about extensive contacts, influence-peddling and votes cast by Harry Reid---with donations to Reid or an association related to him following shortly after the contacts or actions taken by him on behalf of Jack Abramoff's clients. A fundraiser was even held for him at Abramoff's lobbying firm, planned and carried out by a former Reid aide who had become a lobbyist at the firm.

As he continues to deny any wrongful acts on his own part, Reid has somewhat toned down the heated rhetoric he was using to target and brand Republicans as part of the Abramoff scandal---calling it a "Republican scandal."

Well, Reid is a Democrat.... one who will not be able to hide his involvement with Abramoff's firm and clients---who also donated to Reid.

So...., isn't it time for Senator Harry Reid to step down as Minority Leader of the Senate? It's what he demanded of Rep. Tom DeLay. If it's good for Tom DeLay, seems as how it ought to be good for Harry Reid.

Reid's office acknowledged Thursday having "routine contacts" with Abramoff's lobbying partners and intervening on some government matters, such as blocking some tribal casinos, in ways Abramoff's clients might have deemed helpful...."
