(Salt Lake City, UT) — A pair of Utah district attorneys say they have evidence that could link Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Senator Mike Lee of Utah to illegal campaign contributions involving online gambling. The Democrat and Republican DA’s say they are currently working with the FBI on the case and both are urging the Department of Justice to join the investigation. The allegations arose from an investigation into corruption focused on former Utah Attorney General John Swallow. Both Reid and Lee have ties to the online poker industry, but they are denying any allegations of illegal contributions.
