WASHINGTON, D.C. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Nevada Senator Harry Reid is firing back against what he calls harassing phone calls, targeting his granddaughter.
Reid said the calls started after a Federal Election Commission investigation revealed his campaign paid thousands of dollars for items from a jewelry store owned by his granddaughter. The jewelry was given to Reid's supporters as gifts. Reid has since agreed to repay his campaign more than $31,000 for the jewelry.
Reid said in a statement he "regrets any role" he had in the situation, but the "harassing phone calls" directed at his granddaughter need to stop.
