A spokesman for U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says Reid's Hispanic press secretary in Nevada is no longer with the office amid a news report accusing her of a fake marriage to help a man evade immigration laws.

The conduct allegedly committed by Diana Tejada was "clearly wrong." Reid spokesman Jim Manley said Monday night. But he called the Fox News report a "desperation measure" by Republicans trying to gain an advantage in a tight Senate campaign.

Reid is seeking a fifth term against GOP challenger Sharron Angle. Polls show the race about even.

Reached by The Associated Press, Reid's campaign spokesman referred to Manley's comment but declined to expand upon it.

The Fox News report says the 28-year-old Tejada lied to authorities to cover up her marriage to 37-year-old Bassam Mahmoud Tarhini. But the report says Tejada was never charged with a crime.
