Senator Reid Identity Theft Victim

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid canceled his Mastercard after someone stole it and ran up over $2000 in charges.

“But Reid said he is steamed about the fact the perpetrator likely will never be caught. “Something has to be done,” he said, holding up his now-deactivated card.”

If you would like your Senator to consider addressing identity theft, write a letter. It might be more motivating, however, to steal their credit card.

  1. Ah, the scent of sweet, sweet pwnage.
    This should be happening to every CEO, Senator, and Congressman. Max out the card, use it to buy useful things to send to Iraq, like body armor, radios, and foreign passports to the suffering troops.

    Yeah, make it so that the government doesn’t get paid while spending money on a war, we’ll see how long it takes for peace to happen.

    I thought identity theft went beyond using a stolen credit card. Like if someone started getting NEW credit cards in your name, that would be identity theft.

  4. bfd, congress has been spending my money without my permission for years. what comes around goes around.

    Last I looked, the congressturds and senaturds were about to bend over for the credit company lobbyists who want to abolish our ability to freeze our credit (in California and other progressive states) meaning nobody can apply for any credit unless you lift the freeze with a PIN. This isn’t for people who need credit fast all the time, but it’s pretty great for anybody who’d do with a little inconvenience in exchange for protection against ID thieves.

    Now we just need Ted Stevens to not be able to get one of his internets from his Comcast account.

    and here I’ve been wondering what it would take for congress to take ID theft seriously… Finally an answer. It IS a crime and it MUST be prosecuted.

    and Myron – both are considered ID theft
