Reid Demands Apology For ‘Plantation’ Claim, Likens Cassidy To Donald Sterling

ASSOCIATED PRESS

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pushed back on Rep. Bill Cassidy’s (R-LA) remark that the Nevada Democrat “runs the Senate like a plantation.”

“With all the things going on in America today, that’s fairly insensitive. That’s really insensitive. Very insensitive. And if there were any statement that deserved an apology, this is it, big time. I mean, has he been taking lessons from Donald Sterling? Where did he get this?” Reid told reporters at his weekly Capitol press conference, when asked about Cassidy’s comment.

Cassidy is the Republican nominee taking on Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu in November.
