Harry Reid: Mitt Romney Has ‘Sullied’ The Mormon Faith

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has been a consistent critic of Mitt Romney. He attacked Mitt Romney in July, calming in July that a source close to the GOP presidential nominee accused him of paying nothing in taxes for the past ten years. He took to the Senate floor last week to attack Romney’s 47 percent comments, saying that Romney only wants to be “president of half the United States.” On Tuesday, Reid opened up a new front against Romney – religion. In a conference call, Reid attacked Romney for having ‘sullied’ the Mormon faith that they both share.

In a conference call with reporters for the Salt Lake Tribune, Reid praised an opinion piece in The Huffington Post in which author Gregory A. Prince said that Romney is not representative of most members of the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints.

“He is not the face of Mormonism,” Price wrote.

Reid agreed and said that he thought it was disappointing that Romney was hiding from his religious background on the campaign trail.

“He said that Romney has sullied the religion that he, Prince and Romney share,” Reid said to reporters. “And he’s so disappointed that, in his words, ‘It’s a good religion and he’s hiding from it.’ ”
