Sharron Angle files voter intimidation complaint against Reid campaign
In a complaint filed Tuesday, Sharron Angle alleges that voter intimidation was committed by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's campaign, Politico reports.
The complaint is based on a National Review article that appeared Tuesday morning, which accuses Reid's campaign of working with casino owners to pressure employees to vote.
Reid's campaign told Politico that the e-mails show no malfeasance, pointing out that the article's author, Elizabeth Crum, told Fox News that she didn't think "anything either illegal or unethical was done here."
According to the article written by Crum, the campaign staffer offered money to drive employees to the polls, and "the Reid staffer suggests that Harrah's execs 'put a headlock on your supervisors to get them to follow through.' "
Reid and Angle are locked in a tight race in Nevada, which The Post's Amy Gardner calls "the marquee race of the year: the all-powerful Senate majority leader against the scrappy tea-party favorite."
