Quick! Someone Find Us A Special Prosecutor!

It looks likes Sen. Harry Reid may have made a boo-boo. From the Washington Post:
Reid Accepted Free Boxing Tickets While A Related Bill Was Pending

Senate Democratic Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) accepted free ringside tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission to three professional boxing matches while that state agency was trying to influence him on federal regulation of boxing.

Reid took the free seats for Las Vegas fights between 2003 and 2005 as he was pressing legislation to increase government oversight of the sport, including the creation of a federal boxing commission that Nevada's agency feared might usurp its authority.

Of course Reid says the gift would never have influenced his position on the bill. Of course not! Never! Who'd think such a thing? Well, other than the Nevada Athletic Commission. This needs a complete and through investigation.

I love to catch the pious at sin.
Reid's story reminds me of the Nevada Senator from the Godfather.
