Top 11 Reasons Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Didn’t File Financial Disclosure Reports On a Las Vegas Land Deal That Made Him $1.1 Million

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nevada) has gotten himself into a little bit of a pickle involving his apparent failure to file required financial disclosure documents. But don’t worry, he has plenty of excuses. Here are the top 11:

11. Thought “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” applied to Senate Ethics rules

10. His “associates” don’t care to see their names splashed around in government documents, if you know what I mean

9. Ethics rules are only for Republicans because they’re the greedy evil ones

8. Was too busy rooting gay Republican child molesters out of Congress to be bothered with trivial paperwork

7. It was for the children!

6. Was too busy memorizing the list of gay Republican staffers on Capitol Hill so he wouldn’t accidentally turn his back to any of them

5. Was arranging for a new Patty Wetterling ad denouncing the administrators of the Paul and Shelia Wellstone Elementary School

4. What about Jack Abramoff?

3. Didn’t think a measly $1.1 million was worth reproting

2. They do this kind of thing all the time in New Jersey

1. Haven’t you seen Godfather II?

Bill,

No. But, earning $1.1 million, and using it to hire mostly Democrats is very Republican.
