Reid decides to amend ethics reports after facts come to light

It was just a little crooked.
I guess Harry Reid decided that the Main Stream Media was never going to report on his diligent efforts to clean up the problems with his Senate Ethics Reports. Now he is acting like he is happy to see these mistakes corrected. Seen on Drudge:
"Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid announced Monday he is amending his ethics reports to Congress to more fully account for a land deal that allowed him to collect $1.1 million for property he hadn't personally owned for three years.

Reid acted several days after The Associated Press reported the senator didn't disclose to Congress that he first sold the land to a friend's company back in 2001 and took an ownership stake in the company. He didn't collect the seven-figure payout until the company sold the land again in 2004 to others.

Reid said his amended ethics reports will list the 2001 sale."
Noting that there might be a few other small discrepancies in his ethics reports, Reid said: "I believe in ensuring all facts come to light." Sure, Harry, now that you've been caught.
