Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) was injured Thursday in an exercise-related accident, but is expected to make a full recovery.

Reid's office said in a statement Friday that the outgoing majority leader was exercising at his home in suburban Las Vegas when a piece of exercise equipment broke, "causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face."
The statement said that Reid plans to return to Washington this weekend and return to the U.S. Capitol on Tuesday as the new congressional session begins.
Reid, 75, was treated at the University Medical Center in Las Vegas and kept overnight as a precaution, the statement said.
Could Harry Reid's injuries though be from something else? Harry has had some questionable ethical issues.
Last April (2014) Harry Reid desperately tried to seize Cliven Bundy's ranch in Clark County, Nevada claiming the land under federal domain. The reports were that this land was so valuable because a Chinese company wanted to come in and set up a solar electrical company on the land. Guess who the person was that was brokering this potential deal and was ready to rake in millions? - Harry Reid's Son.
Then there is the story breaking of a St. George Utah businessman, Jeremy Johnson who says the Utah Attorney General, John Swallow, helped broker a deal in 2010 in which Johnson believed he was to pay Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid $600,000 to make a federal investigation into Johnson’s company go away.
But when the federal government filed a lawsuit Johnson thought he had paid to quash, he demanded Swallow return some of the $250,000 initial payment. Then, just days before the Nov. 6, 2012 election, Johnson engaged in a frenetic but unsuccessful effort to get Swallow to drop out of the race, saying information about what Johnson called a “bribe” would come out and force his resignation if he became attorney general.
Johnson’s allegations come less than a week after Swallow took the oath of office. Federal agents have interviewed several Utahns about Johnson’s relationship with Swallow, among other issues, according to those interviewed.
Could it be that Harry Reid's chicken's came home to roost?
