Harry Reid’s Magically Multiplying Sources

by Ramesh Ponnuru

Via Timothy Noah (a liberal who doesn’t believe Harry Reid’s accusation against Romney), I see that Reid is now claiming that “a number of people have told” him that Romney hasn’t paid taxes for ten years. I see three possibilities here:

1) Reid had heard this story from multiple sources before but only saw fit to mention one of them the other day;

2) Reid has heard from these other sources since he made his initial accusation, but did not mention this context in his comment–did not, that is, say, “I’ve been hearing just in the last few days from other people who confirm what that Bain investor said”;

3) He’s making stuff up.

I’m going on CNN around 7:15 eastern to discuss this matter.
