    So-called fact-checking website PolitiFact proved just how much of a hack organization they were on Thursday when they announced that they were hiring former Florida Congressmen David Jolly (R) and the infamous Alan Grayson (D). The backlash was swift and came from across the political spectrum, especially for Grayson. The backlash was even present on HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered where Cupp and TV’s Andy Levy hilariously mocked the “fact-checker” for hiring the “Archduke” of lying. “In his 2010 campaign, he got called out by another fact-checking website for using edited video in a campaign ad to make his Republican opponent...

    On Thursday morning, Politifact announced that it would be hiring former Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson to help its team of fact-checkers as a "reader advocate." Just two hours later, however, Politifact publicly severed their agreement with Grayson after receiving sustained and intense backlash on social media. We sought out a Democrat and Republican to critique our work in order to try to improve the trust and credibility in fact-checking and PolitiFact. It has become clear our choice of Alan Grayson did not meet that threshold to many. pic.twitter.com/uJuoHhiObI— PolitiFact (@PolitiFact) February 1, 2018 Most of the opposition to Grayson's hire...

    r. Dena Marie Minning, a biochemist and medical doctor who has been romantically linked for months to U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, filed paperwork late Friday to run for election to his seat in Congress.. A Democrat, Minning, 44, has no Florida political background. She is a medical doctor and a biotechnology entrepreneur who founded and runs MedExpert Consulting Inc. In the past two years she was listed as a federal lobbyist with her company to represent Biocryst Pharmaceuticals, which advertises the drug Rapivab as a “first-and-only one-dose intravenous treatment for influenza.” Grayson is declining a re-election bid for his...

    Outspoken Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson is leaving behind his House seat to run for one in the Senate, and his girlfriend reportedly is eyeing his old job. Ninth District Rep. Alan Grayson and Dr. Dena Minning have been dating for months, according to reports in Politico, the Orlando Sentinel and elsewhere. Shortly after Grayson announced his 2016 Senate bid a month ago, Minning filed paperwork with the FEC to run for his House seat. The development adds one more wrinkle to Grayson’s campaign storyline. Grayson, perhaps best known as the congressman who accused anti-ObamaCare Republicans of wanting people to...

    Rep. Alan Grayson’s ex-wife has accused him of physically abusing her over a two-decade period, Politico reported Tuesday. From 1994 to 2014, the Florida Democrat’s then-wife, Lolita Grayson, went to police at least four times with accusations of domestic abuse, according to documents she provided to Politico.

    A trial surrounding Rep. Alan Grayson’s wife’s alleged bigamy has been delayed due to an unlikely medical reason. Lolita Grayson filed court papers this week saying she had been suffering from chest pains. When she went to a hospital to find out the cause, she was told she needed emergency surgery to remove her leaking breast implants and scar tissue, according to the Associated Press. The surgery was Monday; the trial had been scheduled for Thursday in Orlando and has now been rescheduled for March. "Due to this medical emergency, wife is unable to prepare for or attend the trial,"...

    U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson will be in court next week for a half-day trial to determine whether his 24-year marriage was valid in the first place, or if his wife was still legally married to another man when they wed. **SNIP** Lolita Grayson filed paperwork accusing her husband of failing to pay her credit cards, refusing to provide financial support for their children. She also said, in an interview with WFTV-Channel 9 , that she had been forced to apply for a food-stamp card.

    The behind-the-scenes turbulence of U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson's family life continued to spill into public view Wednesday as his attorneys worked to combat his wife's recently revealed domestic-violence allegations. The congressman's lawyers revealed video of the domestic incident that played out at the Grayson home Saturday, which they said proved that Lolita Grayson committed an attack, not her husband. "He was hoping that this matter would stay in the courts and outside of the press, but since horrendous accusations have been made against him ... he believes that the truth must come out," Grayson's attorney Mark NeJame told reporters during...

    Not that the timing makes it any more egregious, but six days after being named the 17th richest member of Congress, it’s being reported that U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson‘s estranged wife has been issued an EBT card to help feed his children. Lolita Grayson was approved for public assistance by the state of Florida, and their four minor children — they have five children altogether — are also enrolled in the free lunch program in Orange County schools, according to ABC affiliate WFTV. The stay-at-home mom was asked if she ever thought she’d be on food stamps. “No,” Lolita responded....

    <p>Florida Lawyer-Congressman Alan Grayson is the absolute darling of the Obama book-licking New Far-Left. He is the one who made a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives in which he claimed the Republican health care plan was for Seniors to “die quickly.” Grayson publically called a female DC lobbyist a “K Street whore.” Grayson told national TV viewers that former Vice President Dick Cheney has “blood dripping from his teeth” and that Rush Limbaugh is an “insane drug addict.”</p>

    Alan Grayson has been out of office for more than a year, but his fundraising emails keep coming. Soon, the Florida Democratic Party could find out on which race all that money could be spent. And it may not like the answer. One expert said a scenario that worries party leaders is a primary battle against U.S. Rep. Darren Soto, D-Kissimmee, who succeeded Grayson in District 9 in Osceola County and southern Orange County. “He doesn’t care what people think, including his own party,” said Aubrey Jewett, a professor of political science at the University of Central Florida who closely...

    Back in May, recently divorced Congressman Alan Grayson, who was running to be the Democrat candidate for the US Senate in Florida, married Dena Minning, one of the candidates running for his Congressional seat. She immediately changed her last name to capitalize on his name recognition. On Tuesday night both were crushed. Alan Grayson came in a distant second in a five-man race with only 18% of the total votes cast. Dena Minning Grayson came in third in her race with almost 28% of the vote.

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Democratic leaders want Rep. Alan Grayson to go away. His ex-wife says he's abusive. Ethics questions dog him. Yet the liberal lawmaker is refusing to drop his bid for the U.S. Senate, potentially upending party hopes that moderate Rep. Patrick Murphy will emerge as the nominee against Republican Sen. Marco Rubio. Grayson is counting on the party's most faithful to ignore the negative headlines and look at his record of being a champion of liberal values, as opposed to Murphy, a former Republican who has voted against President Obama on a number of key issues.

    TALLAHASSEE — Amid the threat of the Zika virus this summer, Democratic Senate candidate and U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, along with his new wife and hoped-for-successor in Congress, Dena Grayson, hosted a tele-town hall meeting to talk about healthcare with constituents. “We need our champions in Congress, people like Dr. Grayson, who actually know about this issue and are willing to fight for it,” Rep. Grayson said in praising his wife during the June 8 call. She herself was engaged in a less politically oriented discussion on the origins and symptoms of the virus. Unmentioned: Dena Grayson was a lobbyist...

    As Rep. Alan Grayson’s Senate campaign began falling apart over allegations he beat his ex-wife, he blasted out a new robocall touting a Grayson for U.S. House campaign. Grayson, however, wasn’t dropping out of the Senate race and running for reelection. Instead, he was phoning Wednesday on behalf of his new wife, Dena Minning Grayson. She married him during the election season on Memorial Day weekend, when she was running as Dena Minning. She promptly changed her last name and began campaigning as his ideological and familial heir in a district where she didn’t live and was once a complete...

    Things got a bit heated between Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) and Politico’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, who asked the Democratic congressman and Florida Senate candidate about the allegations made by his ex-wife that she was the subject of abuse by him for over two decades. Dovere alleges that Grayson pushed him during their exchange. Patrick Caldwell of Mother Jones captured the tension:“No, you pushed me…no I’m sorry you pushed me” said Grayson. Dovere said that they captured the whole thing on video.“Well, that’s a good thing. I’ll be handing that over to the Capitol Police, my friend” said an angered Grayson. Devore...

    No, Rep. Alan Grayson—an AR-15 rifle cannot shoot 700 rounds per minute. And CNN’s Erin Burnett did nothing to press him on this outrageous claim during her on-camera interview with him Sunday. Now, the AR-15 wasn’t the rifle used in the Orlando attack, which left 49 people dead in the worst mass shooting in American history. It also was a likely terrorist attack, but let’s discuss these remarks by Grayson because it shows how the anti-gun Left has no clue what they’re talking about.Alan Grayson claims AR-15 can fire 700 rounds per minute, which is ridiculous “If I may just say...

    Florida Rep. Alan Grayson used the aftermath of Sunday’s Islamic terror attack to claim AR-15 semi-automatic rifles can fire 700 rounds per minute. Security guard Omar Mateen killed 49 people and wounded over 50 others during an attack on a gay nightclub — the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. Mr. Grayson, a Democrat, was asked about the massacre and soon turned his attention to the AR-15 rifle. ... “If [Mr. Mateen] was not able to buy a weapon that shoots off 700 rounds in a minute, a lot of those people would still be alive,” the congressman said. “If...

    Sen. Marco Rubio is coming under heavy pressure inside and outside the Beltway to change his mind and run for reelection to the Senate.For Senate GOP leaders, the move is a political no-brainer. ADVERTISEMENT Rubio is a known quantity and an able fundraiser, and they believe he represents their best shot at keeping Florida’s Senate seat in the Republican column.For Rubio the question is tougher.Running for the Senate would amount to a significant political u-turn. He’s repeatedly railed against the ineffectiveness of the upper chamber and brushed aside questions about his lax attendance record.He could also be risking his...
