Harry Reid blasts NRA as only interested in 'making money' -- after accepting campaign cash - Washington Times
Mr. Reid said he didn’t question her motives — though he did question the rest of the Republican Party, accusing them of caving to the NRA at every turn.
It was a stark turnaround for a lawmaker who used to be accused by fellow Democrats of holding too close ties with the gun rights group. He voted for NRA priorities, accepted the group’s endorsement in his 2004 race and sought it in 2010. He didn’t get the endorsement, but the NRA’s action fund did contribute $4,950 to his campaign — part of the more than $10,000 in donations Mr. Reid has collected from the group during his time in Congress, according to the Sunlight Foundation.
During that 2010 campaign Mr. Reid also appeared at a gun range with NRA Executive Vice President Wayne La Pierre, who showered praise on the senator. The NRA also wrote an effusive note saying it owed any of its legislative victories over the previous years to Mr. Reid’s role as the leader of Senate Democrats.
On Tuesday, NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker signaled that the good feelings are long over.

The conspiracy theory around Harry Reid's exercise accident, explained - Vox
Behind this somewhat enigmatic tweet lies a rather elaborate conspiracy theory. @jhinderaker is John Hinderaker, one of the proprietors of the conservative blog PowerLine, and he's peddling a theory that the injuries Reid suffered while exercising in January weren't an accident at all. To Hinderaker the official story is just a cover-up for an incident that involves Mafia violence — likely the fallout of what Hinderaker alleges to be long-running corruption on the part of the Nevada senator and Democratic Senate leader.

"When a guy shows up at a Las Vegas emergency room on New Year's Day with severe facial injuries and broken ribs and gives as an explanation the functional equivalent of 'I walked into a doorknob,'" Hinderaker writes, "it isn't hard to guess that he ran afoul of mobsters."

This is a wild theory that lacks any evidentiary basis. But its popularity on the right speaks to the fact that conservatives are convinced that Reid — who has grown wealthy enough while in office to make the Ritz-Carlton his DC residence — has used his decades in public office to corruptly enrich himself, and the media has given him a pass on it.

Why Harry Reid Chose Chuck Schumer | FiveThirtyEight
Schumer is the one plausible candidate for Democratic leader who combines ideological closeness with Reid with fundraising and media prowess. And his path into the position seems almost assured; Durbin has already indicated he’ll back Schumer.
