‘A defeat of Harry Reid .. will be devastating for our industry’s future’

Top lobbyists and bosses at Harrah’s casino are strong-arming workers to vote for Harry Reid.

NRO has the story. Here’s a pdf of the email exchange between Harrah’s lobbyist Jan Jones and a Reid staffer. My favorite part, from Harrah’s VP for “public policy”:

Waking up to the defeat of Harry Reid Nov. 3 will be devastating for our industry’s future,

Did I mention Harry Reid is the top recipient this election of lobbyist cash, and that the top casino lobbyist (a Republican) is backing Reid?

The unions, Wall Street, K Street, the casinos, the big drug companies — they’re all going to the bat for Harry Reid. What does that tell you about this Democratic Senate? What does it tell about Obama’s rhetoric?
