- Romney Should Sue Harry Reid For Slander
Win or lose, after this election is over should sue Harry Reid for slander and defamation of character.
The only way these Democrats will learn that you can’t get away with a baldfaced lie and dismiss it as “political hardball” is if they are forced to suffer the consequences.
Harry Reid made a bold allegation. He said that he has an anonymous source who claims that he knows that Romney paid no taxes for ten years.
Reid wasn’t very specific. There are two ways a person can avoid paying taxes. Evasion, which is a crime or by taking lawful deductions which cancel out any tax liability which is entirely legal.
The way Reid stated it, it sounds like he’s accusing Romney of criminal tax evasion.
By suing Reid for slander, Reid would be compelled under oath and the rules of discovery to identify his anonymous source.
Reid is not a journalist and can not claim “freedom of the press” in protecting his source. He must give up the person’s name or be held in contempt and risk prison time.
