RENO, Nev.(AP)- A former developer and lobbyist with long ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Nevada's political elite says he's not guilty of violating federal campaign contribution laws.

Harvey Whittemore stood Thursday wearing a white shirt, blue suit and leg chains for a brief arraignment in U.S. District Court in Reno.

Whittemore pleaded not guilty to all four counts in an indictment stemming from campaign contributions of more than $100,000 on a single day in 2007 to an unnamed elected federal official.

U.S. Magistrate Judge William Cobb said the 59-year-old Whittemore can remain free pending trial Aug. 7.

Whittemore contributed to numerous politicians including Republican Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley.

But records show only Reid received donations of more than $100,000 on a single day

Is that because there are so many potentials or so much dirt or so many dirty potentials?

The point is more which side of the aisle they care to dig into.
If you doubt that a good example was the coverage of Walkers win in WI. I was watching Huffington Post early on and was really funny how they just couldn't come out and give the numbers but spent all the time on why money counts and other reasons that would down play the win.
