Today isn’t the first time juicy rumors about the Senate majority leader have spread on Twitter. For some reason, these rumors — such as whispers that Harry Reid might be a pederast — pop up whenever Reid starts spreading things he’s “heard” from his reliable sources. During campaign season, a little bird told Reid that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in a decade, and today, Reid told reporters that his opponents in the fiscal cliff negotiations aren’t getting along.

“We’ve heard about all the infighting going on with the House leadership. I don’t know how valid it is,” Reid said. “I just got a message here that there’s a battle going on between McCarthy and Ryan and the Majority Leader in the House … and Boehner.”

We don’t know how valid these most recent #HarryReidRumors are, but we thought we’d better pass them along.

Outrageous! What else do you have?

Apologize? Reid never backed down from his Romney tax return rumors. What will his imaginary friend tell him next?
