As Twitchy reported, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) made outlandish and unsubstantiated claims about Mitt Romney and his taxes. While the press ran with the slimy rumors, citizens turned their attention to Senator Reid and what he may be hiding himself. That scandal continues.

Today, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi backed Reid’s imaginary friend conversation.

Of course, HuffPo, and MSNBC’s Ed Schultz,  ran with scurrilous and unsubstantiated slime-attempt rumors. Again.

From the Huffington Post:

“Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact,” Pelosi told The Huffington Post in a Sunday interview. “Whether he did or not can easily be disposed of: Mitt Romney can release his tax returns and show whether he paid taxes.”

Both Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus came out swinging against Reid on Sunday over his claims about Romney potentially not paying taxes. Asked to respond to Priebus calling Reid “a dirty liar” over the situation, Pelosi initially responded, “Who?” She went on to say that Priebus doesn’t know what he’s talking about since he wasn’t part of Reid’s conversations.

“Well he doesn’t know that,” Pelosi said. “Harry Reid is a person who is, as we know, A, is a fighter, B, he wouldn’t say this unless it was true that somebody told him that.”

Oh, well then! Case. Closed.

Some guy, who knows this girl, who cuts the hair of this other guy’s cousin totally said it! As for what kind of person she thinks Harry Reid is, well, citizens disagree. Sorry, Nancy, but he is either delusional and hears voices in his head or he is a big, fat liar. Maybe both.

Citizens also give Ms. Pelosi the business for shamelessly and shamefully defending and backing Sen. Reid’s gutter-level smears.

Heh. Pelosi’s camp is also conspicuously silent on those allegations.
