Nothing to see here –
If you’re thinking about breaking the law and prefer not to spend any time in court, you may want to check into registering as a Democrat. The latest person in our hit parade of folks who appear to have broken the law but somehow fail to attract the interest of the authorities is none other than soon to be retired Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. Before we get too carried away here, though, it’s worth noting that the law which Reid is accused of breaking isn’t exactly up there on the list with Grand Theft Auto. His office sent out a fundraising letter a couple of years ago which failed to carry a mandatory warning about donations. (Washington Examiner)
The Federal Election Commission, which considered legal action against former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee for joking about fundraising, won’t punish Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid for admitting to violating an election law.
The reason: It’s not worth the effort[…]
Not worth the effort. Supposedly, the mailing only garnered 62 donations but if a Republican had done the same thing and their donation letter garnered a mere 10 donations, the FEC would have gone after them with both barrels.
