Harvey Whittemore surrenders to federal prison

After several failed bids to stay free until his appeal is decided, fallen power broker Harvey Whittemore surrendered himself to a federal prison Wednesday morning to begin serving his two-year prison sentence for making illegal campaign contributions to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Whittemore was convicted last year on two counts of using employees and family to skirt campaign finance limits and contribute to Reid's re-election bid in 2007.


I'll bet Harry knew nuthin about it.....didn't he?

Whittemore was convicted last year of violating campaign-spending laws by using family and employees of his billion-dollar real estate company to funnel more than $130,000 to Sen. Harry Reidís re-election committee in 2007.


Now listen to the Cow Poop Poet pontificate about Billionaires contributing to campaigns....


I can only assume that billionaires that make "illegal" campaign contributions to HIS campaign are OK, but billionaires making "legal" campaign contributions to Republicans are evil. I think Hapless Harry is just jealous because there are precious of the very wealthy that will send even a wooden nickel the Democrats way. Why would they support commies that want to take everything they've worked for and hand it over to the sloth. The folks with their hands out aren't about to make money contributions, but they might get up off their lazy asses to vote Democrat if the money keeps flowing.
