Reid Denies Involvement In Utah Businessman Scheme

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's office said Monday he was never involved in a deal to have a Utah businessman pay the senator to make a federal investigation disappear.

St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson, who's accused of running a $350 million software scheme, said a top official in the Utah attorney general's office orchestrated an agreement in 2010 to pay $600,000 to someone connected to Reid.

Johnson told The Salt Lake Tribune over the weekend that he believed Reid would intervene in the Federal Trade Commission's investigation into his business.

A spokeswoman for Reid's office, Kristen Orthman, said Monday that the Nevada Democrat "had no knowledge or involvement" in Johnson's case and said the allegations "are nothing more than innuendo and simply not true."

1. Wow an unnamed top official in the Utah attorney general's office told him that?

He should have gotten the fellow's name before giving him $600,000.

2. The top official is Swallow

just got elected as Attorney General of Utah.

Invoking the name of God or Ghandi, or Bush, doesn't mean squat. A rip off artist can invoke any name they want to attempt to legitimize their scheme.

3. So this moron thinks an anti-Obama hardcore Republican (Swallow) will bribe with Harry Reid?

Interesting.

5. The likelihood of Harry Reid treating anyone from Utah as a constituent is slim.

Johnson is not helping his case either because he is admitting to attempting to bribe someone.
