Reid: Romney 'not the face of Mormonism'
This old fart is just a mean SOB...
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lashed out at Mitt Romney’s faith during a conference call with reporters, saying he is “not the face of Mormonism” and suggesting he has tarnished the religion.
Reid, a Democrat and the highest-ranking Mormon in U.S. elected office, also said he agrees with claims that Romney has “sullied” the Latter-day Saints faith.
The Nevada senator made the comments during a call Friday, according to The Salt Lake Tribune
Reid: Romney 'not the face of Mormonism
Harry Reid is just plain pitiful. If I were a Mormon I would be ashamed that he was speaking on behalf of my faith after he has done the things he has done.

"He’s coming to a state where there are a lot of members of the LDS Church," Reid also said ahead of Romney’s arrival Friday. "They understand that he is not the face of Mormonism."
The Romney campaign and Latter-day Saints officials declined Tuesday to comment. However, Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, also a Mormon, called Reid's comments inappropriate.
“What (Harry Reid) said was way, way out of bounds," Chaffetz told FoxNews.com. "Sen. Reid is inappropriately using the church for his own personal political gain. That is a shameful act by any measure.”
