Harry Reid: Olympic Committee Should “Be Ashamed”

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) lambasted the U.S. Olympic Committee today for buying the uniforms athletes will wear in the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics that were made in China.

“I am so upset that I think the Olympic Committee should be ashamed of themselves, I think they should be embarrassed,” Reid said in response to a question at a press conference. “I think they should take all of the uniforms put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again; [even] if they have to just wear nothing but a singlet that says USA on it.”

“We have people in the textile industry that are desperate for jobs,” Reid added.
