A statement released to reporters from Senator Harry Reid’s office claims Reid spent much the first day of the new year in the hospital after suffering a nasty accident while exercising.
The statement asserts that “a piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face.”
Reid was reportedly first brought to St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson to treat the injury before he was transferred to the University Medical Center in Las Vegas, where he remained overnight.
According to Reid’s office, doctors expect him to make a full recovery, and he will return to Washington in time for the Senate to reconvene on Tuesday.
This is a bigger crock than the whoppers coming from O on a daily basis. In the first place, the story is too vague – if it were the truth there would be more detail about what kind of equipment and a description of what broke.
It’s odd that it happened on New Year’s Eve, the biggest party night of the year, and we’re supposed to believe he was exercising. How does a fall break ribs and facial bones which are some 12″ higher?
I’m not buying it. Somebody got drunk and punched the stuffing out of dirty old Harry.
