Reid’s office says senator not involved in pay deal
St. George businessman Jeremy Johnson, who is accused of running a $350 million software scheme, said a top official in the Utah attorney general’s office orchestrated an agreement in 2010 to pay $600,000 to someone connected to Mr. Reid.
A spokeswoman for Mr. Reid’s office, Kristen Orthman, said Monday that the Nevada Democrat “had no knowledge or involvement” in Mr. Johnson’s case and said the allegations “are nothing more than innuendo and simply not true.”
Federal prosecutors say Mr. Johnson’s company sent software to consumers for a supposedly risk-free trial but billed them anyway.
Mr. Johnson was arrested at a Phoenix airport in 2011, carrying more than $26,000 in cash and a one-way plane ticket to Costa Rica.
