Amended Report

Reid Decides to Amend Ethics Reports
Reid acted several days after The Associated Press reported the senator didn't disclose to Congress that he first sold the land to a friend's company back in 2001 and took an ownership stake in the company. He didn't collect the seven-figure payout until the company sold the land again in 2004 to others. Reid said his amended ethics reports will list the 2001 sale.
So, how come he didn't put it on the report in the first place?
Reid blamed the AP story as a "latest attempt" by Republicans to affect the election. AP reported last week that it learned of the land deal from a former Reid adviser who had concerns about the way the deal was reported to Congress.
Is he sh*ttin' me? Oh yeah, the conservatives have the AP, along with the rest of the MSM, in their back pocket. 'scuse me.....ROFLMAO
