Reid: A Portrait is Worth $7,000

Bye Reid.A long goodbye.In his centuries in higher office, Senator Harry Reid has had a good amount of experience in spending campaign funds on those near and dear to him.

This time around, instead of spending $31,000 on trinkets made by his grandchild, Reid deemed it necessary to spend $7,000 on a portrait---of himself.

The artist, a former staffer of Reid’s, Gavin Glakas had also previously done a portrait of the Senator’s wife.Rangel, likes his cash cold.

While campaign donors might not feel like that was money well-spent, when another Democrat Dinosaur Rep. Charlie Rangel paid $64,500 of PAC funds for a portrait back in 2007, the FEC ruled that legally there was nothing wrong with that.

Something to think about when you decide to add to a campaigner’s coffer.

    When is Reid finally gone? I don't mean dead of course but his term up? Isn't he finally term-limited?

    To be fair the painting does look more lifelike than he does.:D

    The worth of a Portrait of Senator Harry Reid is $7,000 and as citizen of America we know that he served a lot in different organizations of USA. Therefore, the worth is much expensive and so many people take interest in it. This is main reason of high price of this portrait. Any how, I need some evolutionwriters.com review but i'm happy to know about tihs one. Thanks for it.
