A desperate Harry Reid, facing defeat at the hands of countermoonbat Sharron Angle, has probably been hoping for an October surprise — but not this one:
An aide to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid repeatedly lied to federal immigration and FBI agents and submitted false federal documents to the Department of Homeland Security to cover up her illegal seven-year marriage to a Lebanese national who was the subject of an Oklahoma City Joint Terror Task Force investigation, FoxNews.com has learned.
Diana Tejada, Reid’s Hispanic Press Secretary, admitted to receiving payment for “some of her expenses” in exchange for fraudulently marrying Bassam Mahmoud Tarhini in 2003, strictly so he could obtain permanent U.S. residency, according to court documents.
Tarhini, now 37, was held in jail and at an immigration detention center in connection with his 2009 indictment on felony charges, documents show. He pleaded guilty to entering a fraudulent marriage to evade immigration laws — a Class D felony — in November 2009, and he was deported in March 2010. …
In court documents, Tejada, who was also the Press Secretary of Hispanic Media for the Senate Majority Conference Committee, is referred to as “an uncharged coconspirator in the crime of perjury, filing false immigration documents, the crime of sham marriage.”
Why she was never charged remains a mystery, especially since she confessed to everything.
Tarhini reportedly wanted to pull off the phony marriage scheme so as to avoid compulsory service in the Lebanese National Army. Soon after the fake marriage, Tejada moved to Washington to work for the openly racist radical left group National Council of La Raza (the Race), which specializes in securing special privileges from Big Government at the expense of the gringo. This put her on track for a job with Dingy Harry.
As recently as five weeks ago, on Sept. 21, 2010, Tejada appeared as a guest on a Spanish-language radio program in her official capacity as a spokeswoman for Harry Reid.
Let’s see if we’ve got everything: fraud, check; contempt for the sanctity of marriage, check; potential facilitation of terrorism, check; facilitation of illegal immigration, check; thwarted justice, check; avoidance of military service, check; radical left politics, check; anti-Caucasian racism, check. Sounds like Tejada has a bright future as a Democrat.
Let’s hope the same can’t be said of Harry Reid.
