John Hinderaker at Powerline returns to the unanswered questions surrounding the retiring Democrat senator’s injuries:
When a guy shows up at a Las Vegas emergency room on New Year’s Day with severe facial injuries and broken ribs, and gives as an explanation the functional equivalent of “I walked into a doorknob,” it isn’t hard to guess that he ran afoul of mobsters. Yet the national press has studiously averted its eyes from Reid’s condition, and has refused to investigate the cause of his injuries. To my knowledge, every Washington reporter has at least pretended to believe Reid’s story, and none, as far as I can tell, has inquired further.Read the rest. Reid’s corruption is notorious, even by Democrat standards. The media won’t tell the truth about him, but when was the last time the media told the truth about anything?
When this injury first occurred, the cover story was he was doing exercise with a gray exercise band when it broke, and "threw" him into some exercise equipment. Now, I do a few exercises with a gray band at "fitness club", and have even broken one, and I find it hard to believe it would leave him in that condition, unless he were totally snockered and stumbled off into another machine, and managed a face plant into it.
Anybody in power in Las Vegas has rubbed elbows with the mob, and Harry has had a long and lucrative career there. Besides, the mob story makes for much more fun. Like Hillary's emails, we will never actually find out the truth, so we might as well make up the stories that keep us satisfied.
