A man who spread the rumor that Harry Reid got beat up admits he made up the story.

Larry Pfeifer said he made up a story about Reid’s eye injury, which the senator incurred during an admittedly-bizarre exercise accident, after reading an unsubstantiated rumor in a conservative blog of Reid being beaten up by the mafia. Using a pseudonym, Pfeifer contacted the blogger John Hinderaker and spun a tale of a drunken fight between the Reid brothers, seemingly corroborated by Larry Reid’s DUI arrest around that time.

Hinderaker published the story, though he did not vouch for its veracity. However, that was enough to get the rumor mill going. Per the Las Vegas Sun:

The rumor spread quickly after Hinderaker published it April 3, landing Pfeifer on conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham’s radio program six days later when Hinderaker was a guest host, and leading to a conversation between Pfeifer and Rush Limbaugh. Pfeifer said he tried to get on Limbaugh’s show, where he planned to admit he’d made up the story.

Limbaugh, who has been suspicious of Reid’s story, declined Pfeifer as a guest but did air the rumor.

    Pheifer just wants to be included in conservative circles such as they are.

    Hmmmm, why do we question conservative new pundits? Because they will say lies which eventually even their own kind begin to question.

    A conservative lying? How could we possibly know? Oh, that’s right, his lips were moving.

    God these fools just blabber any old crap and the low IQ voters eat it up.

    Limbaugh and Larry Pfeifer spread the rumor that Boxer Harry Reid was beat up, now admitting he made up the story.

    At least Pfeifer admits he lied unlike Rusty who leads his lemmings over the same bluff daily. Limbaugh calls himself “America’s truth detective”-but is rated “True = 0”-via nonpartisan Pulitzer Prize winner PolitiFact. The Limbaugtomized never hear anything accurate.

      Lumpy is the old white racists savoir. He gives them the impression that white males are still the leaders of the world and we can go back to the beaver cleaver falsehoods so many of them have created in their little minds. That was a time that never was real and will never be.

      When will Dusty Harry apologize to Mitt Romney?

        “When will Dusty Harry apologize to Mitt Romney?”
        As soon as Mitt Romney proves Harry wrong.

    Right wing bloggers should stick to propagating rumors about Larry, Darrell, and his other brother Darrell.

    And sleazy Harry Reid still has yet to apologize to Mitt Romney about the lie he started about Mitt not paying taxes. Harry Reid has absolutely no class, and no personal integrity, none whatsoever.

    • EnuffBull April 27th, 2015 at 11:53 am

      And sleazy Mitt Romney never released his tax records to disprove Harry Reid.
