'No Felons in the Senate' Statement Deleted by Dems Before Menendez Verdict


A statement from former Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid insisting that a convicted felon is not going to be able to serve in the United States Senate has suddenly disappeared from the website of the Senate Democrats as jurors deliberate in the federal corruption trial of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).  On Nov. 1, 2008, Reid issued the statement after Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) was convicted on corruption charges. The verdict came down just before his 2008 re-election bid — which he narrowly lost. Pointing to Stevens’ conviction, Reid wrote that “the reality is that a convicted felon is not going to be able to serve in the United States Senate.

The statement’s webpage link now only leads to a page stating, “This link is extinct! We’re working on it.”
