Harry Reid Investigated by Utah Prosecutor in Pay-to-Play Claim

By: Newsmax Wires 
20 Nov. 2015 

U.S. Sen. Harry Reid is under investigation by a Utah county prosecutor in connection with an alleged pay-to-play scheme involving two former Utah attorneys general.

Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings, a Republican, said in a statement on Wednesday that he's looking into allegations related to the Democratic senator from Nevada, reported The Associated Press.

Rawlings declined to disclose the allegations and only said the claims are based on information from witnesses in the attorneys general case.

Reid, who hasn't been charged, fired back at Rawlings in a statement from his spokeswoman Kristen Orthman. She said Rawlings is using "Sen. Reid's name to generate attention to himself and advance his political career, so every few months he seeks headlines by floating the same unsubstantiated allegations."

Reid has denied wrongdoing since a businessman said in 2013 that a former Utah attorney general arranged a deal to pay the senator to get rid of a federal investigation into a software business.

Federal prosecutors declined to file charges in the case.

Rawlings said he has a duty to follow up on leads in the attorneys general case and has been granted permission to investigate possible statewide crimes in relation to the case.

He said he's limited by what he can disclose due to judicial rules but decided to confirm that he's investigating Reid in response to questions from a local newspaper.

"To simply ignore and run from what has been presented by multiple witnesses and sources . . . would mean I am either intentionally blind, or overly worried," Rawlings said in the statement.

Reid's name came up as Rawlings looks into the actions of former Utah attorneys general John Shurtleff and John Swallow.

The two were arrested last summer after prosecutors said the men engaged in a wide-ranging, pay-to-play scheme where they traded favors with businessmen in trouble with regulators during their combined 13 years running the state office.

Swallow has pleaded not guilty to bribery charges. Shurtleff has pleaded not guilty to obstructing justice charges. Both have trials scheduled in 2016.

Rawlings renewed his criticism of the U.S. Department of Justice for limiting what information he has access to and what he can investigate.

Now, .. I wonder. Did Dingy Harry get himself into trouble?

Poor Harry, perhaps he will walk away unscathed?

Good ole' Harry had an unfortunate accident happen to him not very long ago. -- like when something fell into his face.

Maybe Harry is playing with the wrong crowd, .. hmmm! Wink

Because it's just a clever, pithy saying based on comedy show talking points shortcutting logic and reason and making the issue worse. ~ Queshank
