I am not sure if the Democrat Leader of the U.S. Senate was attempting to overcompensate for his homosexual Freudian slip calling Delaware’s Chris Coons his “pet” or he has been watching too many episodes of the AMC network’s Mad Men, but Harry Reid definitely crossed the line of propriety and decorum while introducing Senator Kristen Gillebrand. At the fundraiser Mayor Bloomberg hosted for him at his townhouse Reid referred to her as “the hottest member” as she sat just a few feet away, according to three sources.
A Reid spokesman confirmed it happened, but also noted that the Democratic Majority Leader also praised Gillibrand for her work.
Then he turned his attention to Gillibrand, saying something about how “many senators are known for many things,” according to a source. He added, “We in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest member.”
I can see the cover of next week’s Newsweek now;
