It appears that Senator Harry Reid is quickly becoming one of the most disliked political figures in America, after he continues to make some outrageous proposals.
He has even asked to alter the Constitution to actually give government some control over freedom of speech, by limiting the way peoples’ voices can be heard through campaign contributions. He has also been known for pushing issues of “racism” where they don’t exist, like pushing the Washington Redskins to change their name.
Now, according to WND, formal ethics complaints are being filed against Reid for abusing his power with the goal of intimidating citizens:
A formal ethics complaint filed with the U.S. Senate charges Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., with abusing his political power to intimidate private citizens.
The accusation stems from Reid’s repeated verbal assaults on Republican donors, particularly David and Charles Koch, according to a statement released Monday by Tea Party Patriots.
Reid’s attacks have not been made through a political campaign but on the floor of the U.S. Senate, where the interests of the republic are supposed to be at the forefront, Tea Party Patriots charged.
“This is nothing more than a continuation of the thuggish intimidation campaign mounted by the Obama administration to target and silence people and organizations Democrats disagree with. It has to stop,” said Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots.
“We have filed this complaint so that the ethics committee can do a proper investigation,” she said.
The solution could be a censure from the Senate floor or a referral to the U.S. Department of Justice, she said.
