#NVSen Embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley: Political Show Horse
In a desperate attempt to distract Nevadans from her ongoing ethics investigation, embattled Congresswoman Shelley Berkley released her second ad which claims all credit for a new veterans hospital currently being built in North Las Vegas.
- “It took Shelley Berkley … to finally get us our veterans a new hospital.” (Medals, Berkley For Senate, Accessed 05/09/12)
If this commercial sounds familiar, it’s because two years ago her liberal mentor Senate Democrat Leader Harry Reid claimed he was the sole reason for the new hospital.
- “The VA hospital is being built for one reason, Harry Reid.” (Sen. Harry Reid Works Tirelessly for Nevada Veterans, Reid For Senate, Accessed 05/09/12)
If you get an opportunity to speak with Ms. Berkley – which is incredibly doubtful given that she refuses to go on Nevada Newsmakers or Face-to-Face – it’s worth asking the Congresswoman how she believes she is the reason for the new hospital, given that Harry Reid previously claimed it was himself.
