Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida has been called out for lying about the circumstances of his crashing a local Republican meeting last week.
Grayson was videotaped disrupting a meeting of Orange County, Florida, Republicans at a Perkins restaurant.
The Orlando Sentinel reported on April 9 about the incident and what Grayson said about it:
In the video, Grayson reads from a flier that describes a recent Republican infiltration of a pro-Obama group, and a promise to dish those details at this next GOP meeting. Grayson chides the Republican attendees for sinking so low as to spy on the other side.
Today, Grayson said he was attending a community home owners association meeting in another part of the restaurant that night, and decided to share his displeasure with the contents of the flier with the GOP party members.
Thats political dirty tricks, Grayson said today. I went over to find out what their side of the story was, and whether they approved of that.
Last night, Fox 35 in Orlando reported the organizer of the homeowner's association meeting that Grayson claims he was attending said that Grayson was not invited to the meeting and that Grayson had stormed into the meeting screaming.
"He came in, starting to holler in a somewhat agitated mood, said Kevin Rogers of the Emerald Forest HOA. We asked him what he was talking about. He repeated it and we said, We think you have the wrong meeting.
After the story took off on Friday, Graysons camp said he was at the Perkins to meet with the HOA, something Rogers disputes.
"He didn't come to our meeting, as Ive seen reported in other places.
After the confrontation, Grayson was invited to sit in with the HOA meeting, which he did. We pressed a spokesperson for Grayson to clarify whether the congressman intentionally went to Perkins to disrupt the meeting of Republicans, or if he was there to attend the HOA gathering.
"The timing is inconsequential, said Todd Jurkowski. The congressman highlighted the fact that Republicans were boasting about using new ways to deceive people. He also got to spend time with homeowners he represents."
After Grayson returned to the HOA meeting, Rogers asked him if he felt his behavior was polarizing or divisive. His answer to me was, essentially he was very well known, and he liked the fact he's very well known. If that adds to the fact of him being popular, so much the better."
Yes, Orlando, your Congressman is nuts.
I think a 5150 is prerequisite for all Democrat
office holders. Just consider their leadership....
A few days ago, a link was posted here to a blog that reported he was hospitalized at PIW (Psychiatric Institute of Washington) for four days after erratic behavior included slapping a female colleague of his former law firm in the face.
PIW has a very good reputation—if you can afford it. Assuming the story is true, it’s interesting that this supposed man of the people was willing to go to where the elite chill out when his brain was fried.
Grayson’s probably going to p-off the wrong person someday and end up with a knuckle sandwich.
Yes, and in case you were wondering, the proper prounciation of that last name would be Jerk-off-ski!
Like the Democrats have never done that before.
Grayson Wins in Landslide!

I am so ashamed that he is from my state. He is certifiably insane...... and arrogant, sarcastic, rabid progressive. The only difference between Grayson and the nut job in the WH is Obongo’s anger is bottled up inside, Grayson lets his out daily. Orange county voters, what the hell were you thinking?
I am so ashamed that he is from my state. He is certifiably insane...... and arrogant, sarcastic, rabid progressive.

Grayson has another huge fundraising quarter
April 12, 2010|By David Damron, Orlando Sentinel
The often-polarizing Orlando Democrat expects to report raising $803,000 in the first three months of 2010, a haul that will likely eclipse what all his Republican opponents have raised combined and leave him with $1.5 million in cash-on-hand. It’s also enough to outpace nearly every other member of Congress for the second quarter in a row.
