  •  I doubt Reid would be visiting 5 red states (none)
    if he had anything to hide or be ashamed off.

    His topic of discussion, per this 12/29 story?
    To discuss Republican scandals:

    Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., plans to take on Republicans in their own backyards when he visits five "red states" next month to promote a theme that Republican-led Washington is corrupt and needs to be cleaned up, a spokeswoman confirmed Wednesday.

    Reid, the Senate minority leader, has scheduled a three-day tour with stops in Phoenix; Denver; Salt Lake City; Pocatello, Idaho; and Omaha, Neb. All are in "Republican red" states that President Bush carried in the 2004 election.  ...

    Reid called the Republican-led Congress "the most corrupt in history" during a Dec. 18 appearance on Fox News Sunday.

    On the show, Reid dismissed suggestions he also had benefited from contributions from Abramoff clients. The lobbyist is being investigated by the Justice Department for possibly steering payoffs to members of Congress.

    "Don't lump me in with Jack Abramoff. This is a Republican scandal," Reid said, adding he never met Abramoff nor received money from him.
