    Political Spin at its Finest

    Jim Murphy – March 5, 2014

    No matter what side of the AISLE you’re on, THIS is FUNNY.

    Judy Walkman, a professional genealogy researcher in southern California , was
    doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Senator
    Harry Reid’s great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and
    train robbery in Montana , in 1889. Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common
    ancestor.
    The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows in Montana
    territory:
    On the back of the picture that Judy obtained during her research is this
    inscription: – Remus Reid, horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885;
    escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives,
    convicted and hanged in 1889.’
    So Judy recently e-mailed Senator Harry Reid for information about their great-great uncle.
    Believe it or not, Harry Reid’s staff sent back the following biographical
    sketch for her genealogy research:

    “Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory . His business empire
    grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings
    with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his
    life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the
    railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the
    renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889,Remus passed away during an
    important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was
    standing collapsed.”

    Now THAT’s how its done, folks! That’s real Political Spin!
