Harry Reid

What led a former promenant republican staffer to say this?

"Harry Reid is a disgrace to the Senate and to [his] Church of Latter-day Saints," said Manuel Miranda, who was forced to resign as a Republican Senate staffer after downloading files on judicial nominees from Democratic computer servers. "Both bodies should censure him."

Apparently, Harry justified his continued resistance to support one of Bush's judicial nominees, saying there was "a problem" in the nominee's "confidential report from the FBI." There are strict Senate rules that prohibit the diclosure of a nominee's confidential FBI file and it is unclear whether senators can make general remarks about the files w/o describing what they actually contain.

Rebublicans were outraged at Harry's dirty trick of making broad negative remarks, knowing that no one could go back and justify them because of the seal.
