The group received $40,000 in pledges over five days toward removing the Nevada Democrat’s name from the school’s Outdoor Engagement Center.
University President Scott Wyatt acknowledged Friday that he was under pressure from a group of conservatives to remove Reid’s name but insisted that politics had nothing to do with his decision.
He’s lying, of course. Well, only partly. It was politics, but it was also money:
Wyatt also said the school’s 2011 naming of the center in Reid’s honor generated no donations to it from the senator’s friends as had been hoped.
Further, I’m sure this pissed Reid off. Is it petty? Of course. But every little bit hurt. And I get a warm tingle down my thigh just thinking of Reid, in a rage, throwing a glass of single-barrel bourbon against the mahogany wall of his office when he got word of this.
I wonder what else you can get the whores at this university to give you if you spend enough money?
