The Reid Land Deal Scandal

I don't know the details, although once you start talking about partnerships and LLC, even this lawyer's eyes start glazing over. However as a political point, there are two problems for the GOP: 1) It creates a greater "Washington is bad" atmosphere among the electorate, which hurts the Republicans more than the Democrats, since there in control; and 2) after spending the past two weeks claiming that the whole Foley affair was a Democratic dirty trick, this smacks of hypocrisy.

Plus, he's not running for reelection.

On the whole, this will have nil effect.
