Glad no one hurt.

Grayson drives himself?

Take your pick was he drunk or texting?

And he blames the Republicans for being a danger to his children.

It doesn’t look like he was going to get a DUI. Hopefully he will get sued by the passengers and a pack of ambulance chasing lawyers.

LOL! Anyone watch the video? It was preceded by an ad for a personal injury law firm specializing in auto accidents.

He didn’t get killed did he, with lots of blood and guts everywhere and screaming bloody murder?

Maybe a broken fingernail?

This is what happens when you spend your life in liberal lala land. You don’t see the bus until it’s too late.
I hope no one was hurt.

Two people were injured.

The sad part is that Orlando’s sleaziest ambulance chaser(Morgan), a flaming liberal, has Charlie Crist doing his TV commercials. Not too many to choose from after you find the ones who aren’t Grayson’s friends or donors. No kidding.

I hope his air bag smacked his face like a low rent Mike Tyson.

Too bad there were some injuries on that bus, and damage to the bus.

There are pages and pages of ambulance chasers in the Yellow Pages and many on TV ads. They'll come after Grayson in a heartbeat. He and his insurance company have deep pockets. My hope is that he gets cited for DUI but chances of that are slim and none.

Ha Ha

I can think of two times on the nightly news in Memphis when a bus had a VERY minor collision with a car... in both cases the car was barely scratched but there were several ambulances at the scene to haul away the Democrats claiming whiplash.

Now THAT would be karma.

While driving my Ford Explorer I got hit by a SEPTA bus in Philly. It was a rainy, gloomy, cold night in Narch during evening rush hour. The Explorer was wrecked and the bus not even scratched. But, of course, the cops came and man, did I get some evil looks from the urbanites as they came off that bus to find other transportation as the cop took the reports from me and the bus driver. That bus was full.

A month later I got a notice in the mail I was being sued... by the bus driver, who claimed a head bump or something.

It appears that the Leftist Greyson is driving a Benz and not a Dolt, Leaf or even a Prius. Looks like he is a 1% hypocrite.

Weird. Who would have thought this guy was a phoney?

Driving in Philthy is a contact sport. I actually have a car just for driving down there. A ‘90 Fleetwood with fenders that look like I use them. I hope you made it out of the suit alright.

Anybody wonder if some of the passengers were
riding the bus because Grayson’s political
party of choice is encouraging higher and
higher gas prices?
I do.

I know a schoolteacher in FL who taught his kids. Said they were complete brats. Also said they were extremely bright.

I handed it off to the insurance company and never heard another word about it. By the way, the letter I received notifying me about the suit was from some woman lawyer named “Deborah” something, and it said she was a member of the D.C. bar.

It was a scam all the way, but if the insurance company settles with scum like that, that’s their problem.

Frankly, I was impressed that not a single other person on that bus sued.
I laughed when I saw the bus driver was suing. After the accident I stood there talking with the dude. He said, “Yeah, I thought I must have hit something when the bus jerked a little bit.” Believe me, the accident was like a cinder block plowing into an egg carton.

“Glad no one hurt.”

From the video it would appear that two of the bus’ passengers went to the hospital. But it is too bad that Grayson is still above room temp. We can only hope that one of the PE lawyers hooks one of the injured and sues. Better still if both sue!

His union probably advised him to sue.

And if that didn’t work, he could always claim workman’s comp for the time off he took faking his injury.

A win-win for him.

WESH update ...

ORLANDO, Fla. — Former U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson crashed into a Lynx bus in downtown Orlando about noon Saturday.

Grayson was traveling to an upscale fundraising event for his Congressional campaign.

Authorities with the Orlando Police Department said the crash happened at Orange Avenue and Livingston Street.

Investigators said Grayson was driving a Mercedes, when he ran a red light and hit the bus.

Police and a campaign representative said Grayson and his passenger were not hurt. Two people aboard the bus claimed they suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital.

Authorities said the crash is under investigation, and it’s not known yet what type of citation or charges may be filed.

A news release for Grayson’s campaign event stated it was scheduled from noon until 1:30 p.m. at the penthouse of some local Democrats in The Vue, a high-rise condominium near Lake Eola.

The Orlando Police Department website stated the time of the call to the incident was 12:08 p.m. The Orlando Fire Department dispatched the call at 12:06 p.m.

Featured guests included noted environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and actress Cheryl Hines. The suggested contribution for those attending was $1,000.

A Grayson campaign representative said news coverage of the event was not permitted, and no photos, video or information on the event would be provided.

Grayson defeated former Orlando Rep. Ric Keller in the 2008 election, and he served one term in Congress. Daniel Webster defeated Grayson in the 2010 election. Grayson is running again this year.

His Wikipedia bio doesnn’t have anything about the accident yet. It does say that his district (after redistricting) is 42% Hispanic. So far he is the only Democrat running—but might be in trouble if a Hispanic Democrat decided to run. It doesn’t say how many of those Hispanics are Cuban-Americans and how many are of other backgrounds which are more supportive of the Democrats.

This isn't the first “run in” Grayson has had with Lynx. Grayson made an odd request for the Lynx Building that housed his district office, to install four-foot-high neon letters on the building that spell out his last name. Lynx refused. So finally, after two years of seething over this insult, nutty Grayson got his revenge by t-boning one of Lynx's buses.

They are probably 95% Puerto Rican (NewYorican).
