Judy Wallman, a professional genealogy researcher here in southern California, was doing some personal work on her own family tree. She discovered that Harry Reid’s great-great uncle, Remus Reid, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. Both Judy and Harry Reid share this common ancestor.

Congressman Harry Reids office sent this: this is good spin it cost tax payer $$$

Remus Reid was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to government service, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.’

Well looks like somebody deserves an A for creativity. What a fine job of rewording the facts. This must be the work of the wordsmith Bill Clinton.

Actually, that's from an old joke that's been around for years that I know of. It never happened.

Check out Snopes.

It might be an old joke but I enjoyed it.

I wonder how many people have reworked their family history.

has anyone read Ben Franklin's autobiography...?
he discusses how congress passed a bill for 3000lbs of Gun Powder and a Cannon...
since congress would not purchase gunpowder or a cannon... the bill read
wheat, corn, barley and other grain. and that was to purchase gun powder. and to get the Cannon... they voted on purchasing a Fire Engine... the fire engine being a cannon...
and that was 200+ years ago... thats 200+ years of lying and perfection of lying...

Should have been; Fruit drying agents, fertilizers and a message delivery system....

Gunpowder, also called black powder, is a mixture of sulfur, charcoal, and potassium nitrate.
