Election 2012

Reid Claims Romney Has "Sullied" Mormonism

The GOP nominee's religion has yet to be a significant factor this election cycle

|

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is ripping Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, insisting that the GOP hopeful is not the "face of Mormonism" and has "sullied" the religion that they both share.

During a conference call on Monday ahead of Romney's visit to Nevada, Reid said he agreed with ablog post by Mormon historian Gregory Prince, who had blasted the candidate for insulting 47 percent of the country for refusing to take "personal responsibility" because they were "dependant" on the government.
