Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were involved in a non-life-threatening car accident (thank God).  Reid’s daughter, Lana, 49, suffered a neck injury and lacerations.  Reid’s wife, Landra (photo below), broker her neck, back and nose.  My thoughts and prayers are with them for a quick recovery.  Instead of staying with them at the hospital like a devoted husband and father would, Reid went back to his office to work on Obama’s HealthSCare bill.  Priorities, you know…
My only hope is that Reid doesn’t use this very sad medical situation to gain sympathy votes for Obama’s health care agenda.  That would be low, even for him…

Senate leader Reid’s family hurt in car wreck

Washington (CNN) — The wife and daughter of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid were injured Thursday in a highway accident, a spokesman for the Democratic senator from Nevada said. The injuries aren’t considered life-threatening.

Reid’s wife, Landra, 69, broke her neck, her back and her nose. Daughter Lana, 49, suffered a neck injury and facial lacerations. Their vehicle was rear-ended by a semi-truck on a Washington highway, spokesman Jon Summers said in a statement.

Both victims are conscious and can feel their extremities, he said.

The 70-year-old senator visited them shortly after hearing of the accident at 2:15 p.m., then returned to his office in the Capitol to work on health-care legislation, said Reid spokesman Jim Manley.

Asked whether Reid had considered skipping the meeting and staying at the hospital, Manley responded, "Let’s be clear, for those who may know, he loves that woman more than life itself. But she’s in good hands at the hospital and [he] felt the need to come back and work on this piece of legislation and he’ll be heading back to the hospital as quickly as possible. I just spoke to him, and he’s looking forward to getting back to the hospital."

Manley declined to discuss details, saying only that Landra Reid was continuing to undergo tests.
