Las Vegas Jury Sends Harry Reid's Bogus Injury Lawsuit Packing

Back in 2015, Harry Reid suffered extensive injuries at his home. This is how it was described at the time:

Reid, who will switch from majority leader to minority leader this weekend, broke some ribs and facial bones on Thursday while he was exercising at his home in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson.

His Senate office told reporters on Friday that he would be at work in Washington, D.C. in the coming days, following treatment at University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

‘A piece of equipment Senator Reid was using to exercise broke, causing him to fall and break a number of ribs and bones in his face,’ read a statement from his office.


As it developed, Reid claimed he was using exercise bands that somehow he’d attached to his shower door. In his story, the band broke and the kinetic energy of his tired, 75-year-old ass togging on it turned it into a weapon of mass destruction which uncorked its released energy on his face. (As an aside, why do the Democrats try to gaslight us into believing that their septuagenarian political class is composed of physical fitness addicts? I mean RBG engaging is strenuous physical training? Who you trying to convince, Sparky, me or you?) I have some experience here. I’ve broken two black bands. The both failed exactly the same way: the band separated from the handle and the band slapped the anchor point. It is difficult to imagine what exercise he would have been doing that would have caused him to catapult himself into the emergency room. I don’t believe now and I’ve never believed, nor will I ever believe that Reid was injured in the way he described.

At the time I noted that his was the second “accident” Reid had experienced which resulted in injuries inconsistent with his story, but which were strangely consistent themselves in terms of injuries:

He dislocated his shoulder and bumped his forehead in May 2011 when he slipped and fell during a morning jog in the rain.

Reid leaned on a wet car near his home in Washington, D.C.’s Ritz-Carlton hotel and tumbled to the ground.

That fall left him with a contusion just below his left eye, but he was back in action later that night at a fundraiser for California Senator Barbara Boxer.


As I posted in Does Harry Reid Have An Amazing Secret Life?

I’m sure Harry Reid is absolutely not into BDSM and he certainly doesn’t have a domination dungeon in his house and there is no way he hires professional muscle men to buff him up a bit. Reid might be a vicious. spiteful, lying little man but there is no reason to think that what he’s done to the Senate and the nation as Majority Leader is a metaphor for how he gets his sexual gratification… is there?

Fast forward and Harry Reid filed a lawsuit against *a* manufacturer of exercise bands. The reason for the emphasis on the word “a” will be apparent in a moment. The case went to trial on March 27 and the jury came in yesterday.

A jury in Las Vegas rejected former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s lawsuit against an exercise band maker he blamed for injuries including blindness in one eye suffered in January 2015.

After eight days of civil trial testimony, the eight-member jury deliberated about an hour before declaring Friday that Reid never proved the device he used that day was a TheraBand made by Ohio-based Hygenic Corp.

Jurors never saw the actual exercise band because Reid’s son disposed of it soon after Reid was injured.

Best casing it, this was just another grift run by Reid. He was undoubtedly sure that a home town jury would give him a favorable verdict. But now he’s not a powerful senator.
