Reid Paid Granddaughter $31K

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-NV) campaign paid his granddaughter at least $31,000, Jon Ralston reports.

Reid's response: "My granddaughter has been the target of harassing phone calls, strangers tracking her down and knocking on her door and negative, unwanted attention on the internet. This has gone too far and it needs to stop now. I deeply regret any role I had in creating this situation but now, as a grandparent, I say enough is enough."

Though he's playing the role of "aggrieved grandfather," Reid has promised to reimburse his campaign.
