Remember loathsome gasbag Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL)?
He’s the idiot who described the Republican Party's health care plan as "die quickly" and who later equated the health care system to an American holocaust. Grayson also suggested former vice president Dick Cheney was a vampire who could turn into a bat and fly away at a moment's notice.
When he lost his congressional reelection battle in 2010 to opponent Daniel Webster, he called Webster “Taliban Dan”. When congressional redistricting allowed Grayson to retake his seat, he went on Al Sharpton’s now defunct MSNBC television show to accuse Republicans of legislative terrorism.
Grayson is a despicable piece of garbage. I rank him right up there with the likes of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken and Chuck Schumer.
“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.”—Ronald Reagan
The mouthy Grayson is facing yet another uphill battle in his bid to be elected to the US Senate. He’s facing Patrick Murphy who has repeatedly criticized him over ethical questions about his management of a Cayman Islands-based hedge fund. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has called for Grayson to quit the race, saying he has no moral compass. President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have endorsed Murphy, as has the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
Allegations published in the New York Times and Tampa Bay Times reported Grayson was trading off his power as a congressman. Bloomberg recently reported his family profited from slave labor in Africa. He’s under a congressional ethics investigation, which in March released a 1,000-page report finding he probably broke the law by using his office to operate the aforementioned hedge fund.
Murphy and Grayson are seeking the seat Republican Marco Rubio is giving up after his failed presidential campaign. Republicans running for the seat include Congressmen David Jolly and Ron DeSantis, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera and businessmen Carlos Beruff and Todd Wilcox.
Recently CNN reported the bad blood between Dirty Harry Reid and the bully reached a crescendo at a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill in which he confronted Reid “only to be shut down and told he hopes Grayson loses his primary race.”
Reid's spokeswoman, Kristin Orthman, blasted Grayson in a statement about the exchange, saying, Reid "was honored to be invited by the Congressional Progressive Caucus to discuss issues on which he and they can work together. Alan Grayson decided to be disruptive, to the embarrassment of his fellow colleagues."
