An alternate theory to explain how Harry Reid lost the sight in one eye, and obtained a concussion and broken ribs has surfaced. It appears that on New Years Eve, near the time that Harry was said to be injured, his brother Larry was apparently seen at an AA meeting, (not far from the home of his brother Harry). “Larry” was said to be intoxicated, to have blood on his clothing and a swollen hand. On New Years Day, Larry Reid was was arrested for assaulting a highway patrolman near Searchlight Nevada. People at the AA meeting thought not much Larry mentioning a fight with a family member, and his fear that the secret service would be after him. Later, when the story of Harry Reid’s injuries surfaced, the pieces seemed to fit into an explanation of his injuries which is more plausible than the exercise rubber band, bathroom story.
