Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lashed out at Mitt Romney’s faith during a conference call with reporters, saying he is “not the face of Mormonism” and suggesting he has tarnished the religion.

Reid, a Democrat and the highest-ranking Mormon in U.S. elected office, also said he agrees with claims that Romney has “sullied” the Latter-day Saints faith.

The Nevada senator made the comments during a call Friday, according to The Salt Lake Tribune.

“He’s coming to a state where there are a lot of members of the LDS Church,” Reid also said ahead of Romney’s arrival Friday. “They understand that he is not the face of Mormonism.”

The Romney campaign and Latter-day Saints officials declined Tuesday to comment. However, Utah GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz, also a Mormon, called Reid’s comments inappropriate.
