DescriptionNevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle’s campaign attorney wrote a fundraising letter to supporters on Tuesday, charging that Democrat Harry Reid “intends to steal this election."

In a fundraising plea to supporters, Cleta Mitchell wrote, "As Sharron Angle's campaign attorney, I am sorry to report that the Democrats and their cronies are up to their same old tricks of trying to manipulate the election in hopes of skewing the results in their favor.”

The letter alleges that the Reid campaign offered free food at voter turnout events and that “Democratic allies such as teachers unions are offering gift cards in return for a vote for Reid” — though the letter does not list specific events at which these practices allegedly took place. A search of recent news reports in Nevada did not turn up accounts of unions offering any gifts to voters.

The evidence Mitchell holds up is that the Angle campaign “received reports that some teachers union representatives were offering Starbucks cards to people to get them to vote for Harry Reid. It is even more disturbing and may be possible that they are using their influence and authority as educators to entice students on behalf of Reid.”
