Reid has also been criticized for several self-enriching tactics. In 2005, Reid earmarked a spending bill to provide for building a bridge between Nevada and Arizona that would make land he owned more valuable.
Reid called funding for construction of a bridge over the Colorado River, among other projects, “incredibly good news for Nevada” in a news release after passage of the 2006 transportation bill. He owned 160 acres (65 ha) of land several miles from the proposed bridge site in Arizona. The bridge could add value to his real estate investment.

Yo, Dingy Harry Isn’t Afraid Of The Dark
Dingy Harry Reid apologized on January 9, 2010, for outrageous and offensive racially charged comments he had made when Obama was hustling votes for president.
In private conversations, Reid had remarked that Obama could win the Presidency because the country was ready to get down with a black presidential candidate, especially one that only did a little cocaine when he could afford it like Obama—to whom he referred as being “not too dark” and “light-skinned” and “red-boned” “with no Jive-talk / negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one”.
In addition to his public apology, Reid holla’d to Obama and said “Yo hommie. I did’t rekonize and I be sorry fo dissin you like that”; Obama accepted his apology, stating that as far as he was concerned, “That honky can kiss my skinny black butt”
