WASHINGTON – In an interview with The Huffington Post, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said a Bain Capital investor told him that Mitt Romney wasn’t releasing his tax records because for ten years he didn’t pay a dime in taxes. This afternoon, less than 48 hours since the accusation, Senator Reid told The Daily Rash that he received a call from another Bain Capital investor who told him of the existence of a Mitt Romney sex tape. Now, along with demanding the release of his tax records, Senator Reid is calling for Mitt Romney to release his sex tape.
In a candid interview from his Capital Hill office, Reid told The Daily Rash he was “very surprised” to hear from yet another Bain Capital investor who possessed shocking information about Mitt Romney. The existence of a sex tape, he said, made Romney’s chances of winning the 2012 election highly improbable.
“Harry, Mitt Romney made a sex tape,” Reid recounted the person as saying.
“The Republican presidential nominee has a graphic sex tape! Now, do I know that that’s true? Well, I’m not certain,” Reid said. “But obviously he’s got to either produce the sex tape or prove to the American people that it doesn’t exist. How are Republicans going to explain a sex tape to their children? My heart breaks for those kids.”
In his interview with The Huffington Post, Reid worried about the embarrassment Mitt Romney’s father must be experiencing about his son’s refusal to pay his taxes. He brought up Romney’s father again during today’s interview.
“His poor father, can you imagine the shame? Tax evasion is heartbreaking, but a sex tape? I can only guess the depths of his despair. The poor man must be so embarrassed about his son,” Reid said, “but his grandchildren’s humiliation must be intolerable for him.”
Senator Reid bowed his head and sighed, “I cannot fathom the anguish that poor man’s having to endure.”
When asked if he was aware that Romney’s father passed away in 1995, Reid suddenly began extolling the remarkable performances of America’s athletes at the London Olympics.
Because Harry Reid refuses to reveal the identity of the Bain investor who told him there’s a Romney sex tape, it’s impossible to verify if the accusation is true. The senator says the burden of proof now falls on Mitt Romney.
“What is of the utmost importance right now is for Mitt Romney to release his tax records and that sex tape,” Reid said. “If he has nothing to hide, he won’t have any problems proving his innocence. It’s that simple.”
Later in the day Senator Reid was approached by reporters outside a Capital Hill area Chick-fil-A restaurant.
REPORTER: Senator Reid, is it true you received a call from yet another Bain investor?
SENATOR REID: Yes. The person said there is a video recording of Governor Romney performing various sex acts.
REPORTER: Do you have any proof the video exists?
SENATOR REID: I can’t say for certain, no.
REPORTER: Was it the same investor who told you Romney didn’t pay his taxes?
SENATOR REID: No, this was a different person.
REPORTER: Why are you refusing to reveal the identities of your sources?
SENATOR REID: I’m not that kind of person. If you tell me something in confidence, nobody is ever going to hear it. And you can take that to the bank.
REPORTER: But you didn’t keep a confidence. You told the whole world.
SENATOR REID: Shouldn’t you be asking Governor Romney to explain to the American people why he’s a tax cheating pornographer?
REPORTER: Some people are questioning your motives, senator.
SENATOR REID: My motives? I’m deeply concerned about Mitt Romney’s poor father. Can any of us imagine his devastation? If Governor Romney has an ounce of compassion he’ll release his tax records and his sex tape so his poor father might have some peace.
REPORTER: What do you think will happen to Romney?
SENATOR REID: At the end of the day, it’s all about integrity. Are we honest? Do we treat our fellow Americans respectfully? Like the rest of us, Governor Romney has to live with what he’s done.
REPORTER: How’s your integrity holding up, Senator?
At that point staffers said the senator would not be answering any more questions before whisking him into a waiting limousine
