The Nevada GOP complaint over Harrah's, union pro-Reid tactics

Las Vegas — The Republican Party has filed a complaint with the Nevada Secretary of State about alleged collusion of the management of casino giant Harrah's, several unions, and the Harry Reid campaign to push Harrah's unionized employees to vote for the Senate Majority Leader over Republican challenger Sharron Angle. “Employees' votes were being tracked and supervisors were instructed by top management to personally confront employees to find out why they had not voted,” the complaint says. “Further, the evidence shows that Harrah's management has continually communicated to employees their concern with electing Harry Reid and not just to ensure that the employees voted for the candidates of their choice.”

“Nevada law specifically proscribes the very type of conduct in which Harrah's, the labor unions and Reid have conspired to engage,” the complaint says. Here is the entire complaint.
