If congress actually had any ethics, Grayson should be called out on ethics violations for that horrifically false ad he ran that edited his opponent's words to say the opposite of what he said.

And I think most of it is Grayson’s own doing. His over-the-top slanderous ads are boomeranging on him — big time.

Thank God. Grayson is a mean-spirited buffoon. Voters should be embarrassed that they ever voted for this jerk. Get him out.

Grayson is despicable. He is one of the lowest of the low in the lowest of the low professions. The man is an utterly corrupt, contemptible, lying, evil pig.

Where all whackos end up---Congress.

Grayson was released from a Psychiatric Institute after doctors declared him
“not to be a threat to the public. So the whacko decided to be a Congressman.

=============================================

THIS JUST Circa 1988, Grayson had just turned thirty and while working for the Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson law firm, he spent four days in the Psychiatric Institute of Washington.

What the cause of this stay was is yet unclear, although testimony from co-workers suggests that Grayson was extremely combative with fellow employees, including slapping a female intern in the face.

Grayson was released from the Psychiatric Institute after doctors declared him “not to be a threat to the public.”

I hope that’s true. We have to keep in mind that we’re talking about voters who elected him in the first place.

Hanity played the ad and Webster’s full statement last night and they just showed both on Fox & Friends. Gretchen said something like no woman in his district should vote for Grayson.

I was wondering if the local media was giving it any attention and it looks like the Orlando Sentinel did. Hopefully, after all this comes out, Webster’s #s will go even higher.

Grayson’s ‘Taliban Dan’ ad takes Webster’s words out of context, twists meaning

Can you say “carpetbagger”? Grayson was born in the Bronx, New York and grew up in the tenements. He graduated from Bronx High School of Science, worked his way through Harvard.......and now represents Orlando, Fla.

That sounds familiar----did Grayson pull a Wexler con?

BACKSTORY Ex-Cong Wexler lived with his family in Maryland and calculatedly used his in-laws’ Palm Beach address to establish Florida residency — in overwhelmingly Democratic Palm Beach. Wexler was elected to Congress in 1996 and has NEVER faced a serious challenge. Wexler won a seventh term with 66.2 percent of the vote.

(Sob) I just hope Wexler's wealthy Palm Beach district is not the same wealthy Palm Beach affinity crowd that got wiped out "investing" with Madoff (/sniffle).

Wexler has quit Congress. He will get Big Bucks to run The Middle East (dare we say it) "Peace" Center. Wexler's job will consist of negotiating a multi-billion dollar price tag on the inevitable photo-ops of Peace Pals---Obambi and Bimbiyahoo (in $3500 Armani suits)---shaking hands in the Rose Garden (yawn). The bilking of the US Treasury continues.

NEED TO KNOW Did then-Cong Wexler vote for (and earmark) budget appropriations for The Middle East Peace Center--that included a hefty salary, expense account, travel allowance, and other perks, for himself? An accounting of the Wexler-types getting wealthy off these "peace" scams is in order. Speaking of prosecutions, most Americans believe people should be prosecuted for daring to utter "peace" and "Mideast" in the same sentence.

Grayson, Torres, and peace sign.

Roll Call reported one of Rep. Alan Grayson’s pollsters is running for the state House in Florida as a Tea Party candidate, fueling Republican suspicions that the Democratic Congressman is using a newly formed third party to boost his own re-election bid.

Victoria Torres, 44, of Orlando qualified to run as a Tea Party candidate in state House district 51 in the last hours of the qualifying period.

A call to Torres was returned by Nick Egoroff, communications director for the Florida Tea Party, who described Torres as a “quasi-paralegal assistant who works in a law office.”

According to state records, apparently, Torres is also a pollster.

I have some friends that live in his district. Tiger, Shaq, and many others in ultra high economic circles also live there. It is unfathomable that this nutjob ever won there in the first place. Good riddance to bad rubbish although I do hope he gets the help he so desparately needs. And the leftys make fun of tea partyiers. What a joke.

I believe Grayson is an unmedicated manic depressive. He reminds me Michael Forbes NY 1st CD of a guy my firm researched a few cycles back. He was just as crazy and I always thought he had that problem. Forbes went through FIFTY TWO staff in 18 months.
What made he sure he was meeting his new staff at 12 step or group meetings was when his DC office chief of staff was arrested for urinating in public during the daytime. When the cops got a good look at him they realized he was the guy they wanted for robbing the bank he was peeing in front of two weeks before.

Are there any stories about Grayson having “certifiable” staff? I believe he is mentally ill but what about his staff?

I’m assuming if he gets beat he’ll pack up and move to Minnesota to run for the Senate - Minnesotans appear to have a proclivity for clueless clowns who use the carpetbagger approach.

And he’s almost as ugly as one of the jerks they’ve got as a senator now.

West is in FL-22 and yes, he does have a shot.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Florida%27s_22nd_congressional_district

There are competing internal polls from each camp. Each show their candidate leading. Both show Klein under 50%. We don’t have full data from Klein’s poll, but West’s poll shows him winning independents by a sizable margin. Both were before the SS number was released. West should be able to pull it off. The district was R until 2006.

Agree! Wexler (no longer in Congress)are a couple of other examples; and, of course, there is Debbie Schultz-Wasserman (sp) - I turn channels whenever that insufferable, lying whiney, woman comes on.
