Florida Congressman and national embarrassment, Alan Grayson made a fortune as a plaintiffs' attorney specializing in whistleblower fraud cases aimed at Iraq war contractors. For example, employees of one contractor Custer Battles, were found guilty of making fraudulent statements and submitting fraudulent invoices on two contracts in 2003 Grayson disclosed his attorney fees and costs for the case exceeded $4 million, and that's just one case.
In 2006, a Wall Street Journal reporter described Grayson as "waging a one-man war against contractor fraud in Iraq" and as a "fierce critic of the war in Iraq" whose car was "emblazoned" with bumper stickers such as "Bush lied, people died".
Since he arrived in Congress, Grayson has kept up his attacks. "We're not going to let the defense contractors use our money to bribe our government and take it over," he once said. And he has singled out Blackwater (now known as Xe) for special criticism: "We can't let, basically, Blackwater take over the entire government here. We have to draw the line somewhere."

This is rich. Our favorite idiot can’t seem to stay out of the news.
How did you people in Florida do this to yourselves????
Too bad they saved his sorry butt..... :P
That tells anyone all they need to know about this guy. It's incredible to believe that a lunatic like this got elected to congress.
But, maybe it isn't so incredible. I just remembered Cynthia McKinney...
Of course not! It is only acceptable for the Unions to do that!
Who are his Republican opponents this year? They need support, and the primary winner needs support. This jackass needs to a one-termer.
WHY? For the love of God why?
Priceless. One of the few anecdotes worth retelling...
Maybe it was a mistake, they didn’t realize who he was, till after they saved him.
