Everything’s political

For those tired of negative campaigning, there is a new indication that there are no limits. A Las Vegas woman’s children used her obituary to attack U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada.

Charlotte McCourt, once a supporter of Reid, had become disenchanted with him over the years and her obituary in the Las Vegas Review-Journal contained this language: “We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to [the] U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work.”

Asked for a comment, Reid offered his sympathy to the family.
