Playing the Slavery Card Against Harry Reid

Floyd Brown, the man behind the 1988 Willie Horton ad (and now a conservative activist who’s on the board of the American Conservative Union) unleashes probably the strangest ad you’ll see hitting Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.). Keying off a brag that Reid made in one of his own ads — that he used his power to help casino tycoon James Murren build Las Vegas’s city center — Brown attacks Murren’s partner, Dubai’s prince Mohamed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, for using “slave labor” to build his city. The claim is sourced to CBS News and Human Rights Watch, but it could just be a vehicle to show voters the very Arabic visage of Al Maktoum.

“Slave labor in Dubai. Union labor in Las Vegas. And both the slave bosses and the union bosses want Harry Reid re-elected!”

Are they trying to say that Harry Reid has even a minor ownership in this company?

Looks like they're grasping at straws again. A sure sign of desperation, I just hope the people of Nevada are more intelligent than to believe this stupid ad.

Are they trying to say that Sen. Reid has even a minor ownership in this? What is it they are trying to say in their feeble attempt to discredit him. I hope to people of Nevada are more intelligent and sane to believe that garbage.
