Harry Reid suing AP?
John Aravosis found a recent AP story noting that Reid had hired lawyer Martin Singer -- a libel, copyright and privacy specialist -- "to help Reid respond to a story by The Associated Press that was critical of a Las Vegas land deal involving the senator."
John Solomon, a reporter with a history of trumped up stories of political malfeasance (as if actual corruption is hard to find?), reported that Harry Reid "collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years."
TPM's Paul Kiel wrote, simply: "that's wrong," noting that Reid made $700k and he did own the land.
It's complex (read the full explanation here) but suffice to say, it doesn't look like Reid is taking the story sitting down and may, as the hire of Singer suggests, sue the AP for Solomon's shoddy reporting.
