Harry is as pure as the driven snow and had no idea this happened

RENO, Nev. - A former Nevada powerbroker was convicted on Wednesday of making illegal campaign contributions to U.S. Sen. Harry Reid.

A federal jury reached the verdict in the case against real estate developer and once powerful lobbyist Harvey Whittemore.

The jury returned unanimous guilty verdicts on charges of making excessive campaign contributions, making contributions in the name of another, and causing a false statement to be made to the Federal Election Commission.

Whittemore faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.[...]

Reid has not been accused of any wrongdoing and did not testify during the trial. He has said he was unaware of any potential problems with the money he received..

Sure Dingy Harry.
