Charlotte McCourt Leaves this World and a Message for Harry Reid

Where will Harry Reid point his finger in retirement?

Good Lord, what does this story tell us about the level of scoundrel that Senate majority leader Harry Reid is? John L. Smith in the Las Vegas Review Journal writes:

Chances are good you never met Charlotte McCourt during her 84 years, but I’m willing to bet you’ll be hearing about her in the coming days now that her obituary has taken Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to task. It’s the kind of small story that has the potential to ricochet like a bullet through the campaign showdown between incumbent Reid and Republican challenger Sharron Angle.

Not because McCourt, who died July 8 after a long illness, was a political player or business powerbroker, but precisely because she was neither of those things. She was a homemaker, proud mother and grand mother and wife of 67 years to Patrick McCourt.

And she was at one time a loyal supporter of Harry Reid.

Her obituary, printed in Tuesday’s Review-Journal, reads in part, “We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.”

It sounds like Charlotte McCourt was quite a lady - probably a real character too. It's too bad she was swindled and bamboozled by such a crook. Remember concerned citizens, America has an alternative to Harry Reid - her name is Sharron Angle. Read about her and support her here.

UPDATED: Well how about that? Legal Insurrection informs us that Charlotte McCourt was Harry Reid's campaign manager way back in the day. With this new knowledge, the title to this post should be, "Former Reid Campaign Manager Charlotte McCourt Leaves Message in Obituary."
