Senator Harry Reid says Romney “didn’t pay taxes for 10 years”

This story has been widely reported, but I thought I’d write about it because I like to call out nonsense, left or right. In case you missed it, Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D-NV) revealed to the Huffington Post that a Bain Capital investor told him that Mitt Romney “didn’t pay taxes for 10 years.” Reid added, “Now, do I know that that’s true?

Reid also said, “His poor father must be so embarrassed about his son.” Really Reid? Bringing Romney’s father into your bullshit story? Even if your story is true, saying that his dad would be embarrassed is really a low blow. Jon Stewart called out Reid’s bullshit on last night’s Daily Show segment titled, You, Harry Reid, Are Terrible:
