Harry Reid Should Resign

Harry “Legislation-for-kickbacks-to-my-sons” Reid decided that there should be no limits to character assassination yesterday when he referred to confidential FBI files of judicial nominee Henry Saad.

“Henry Saad would have been filibustered anyway,” Mr. Reid said on the floor yesterday, about the Michigan Appeals Court judge who is nominated to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit. “All you need to do is have a member go upstairs and look at his confidential report from the FBI, and I think we would all agree that there is a problem there,” Mr. Reid continued.

It’s a convenient way to trash Saad’s reputation because he can insinuate evil things in the confidential file and rule prohibit disclosure of such information to the public. So essentially, he can completely make it up and know it can’t be proven or disproven in public.

Michael Bouchard, sheriff of Oakland County in Michigan and a personal friend of Judge Saad, said he is “absolutely” certain that the FBI file doesn’t contain anything damaging. “I think Harry Reid is lying,” he said. “He’s hiding behind something he knows he’ll never be asked to show. Harry Reid is a coward.”

But Standing Rule of the Senate 29, Section 5 may spell bad news for Reid and his underhanded tactics:

“Any Senator, officer, or employee of the Senate who shall disclose the secret or confidential business or proceedings of the Senate, including the business and proceedings of the committees, subcommittees, and offices of the Senate, shall be liable, if a Senator, to suffer expulsion from the body; and if an officer or employee, to dismissal from the service of the Senate, and to punishment for contempt.”

Contact Harry Reid and encourage him to do the right thing and resign today:

528 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510
Phone: 202-224-3542
Fax: 202-224-7327

But no need to worry, I’m sure the ACLU will support his resignation because of the invasion of privacy issues. [/sarcasm]
