    APOPKA, Fla. — U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson spoke at an Apopka event Sunday intended to support and educate residents about President Barack Obama’s recent executive action on immigration. Funding for the Department of Homeland Security will last only through the end of the week. A long-term solution has not yet been reached because of the ongoing debate over immigration. Channel 9’s Janai Norman spoke to a local family caught in the middle of the debate.

    Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is talking like a man who will run for Senate in 2016. In an interview with The Hill on Tuesday, Grayson said he’s thinking about running. The often-controversial Democrat spoke at length about why he’d begin in a potential Senate race in position of strength, whether he’s going up against Sen.

    A trial surrounding Rep. Alan Grayson’s wife’s alleged bigamy has been delayed due to an unlikely medical reason.

Administration officials have argued that the U.S. should respond to the attack because the failure to do so would send a message to other regimes — and terror groups — that the use of chemical weapons was acceptable. But in an interview with CNN's "New Day," Grayson said that too few countries had chemical weapons for that to be a concern. "There's only four countries in...

    Looney Tunes Leftie Alan Grayson is a GOD in DUmmieland! And the defeated one-term congressman from Outlandish, Florida, has just announced that he will TRY AGAIN in 2012. This sent a buzz through DUmmieland like you wouldn't believe! And then, lo and behold, The Man himself showed up, in the DUmp, to greet the faithful! It's like a rock star--no, a movie star--dropping by to pay a visit on the little people! But in reality, Alan "Guts" Grayson just dropped in to . . . FLEECE THE DUMMIES! Yes, he didn't actually INTERACT with these morans, he just stopped...

    WFTV Channel 9 News ^ | July 11, 2011
    WFTV learned on Monday that former U.S. Congressman Alan Grayson is running for office again. On Monday, Grayson said he doesn't plan to do anything different. He said he's running again because of all the people who have reached out and asked him to. Grayson already raised nearly $100,000 in donations before filing his paperwork on Monday. "We need somebody who's gonna stick up for what's right. Somebody with guts," Grayson said. During Grayson's last campaign an ad referred to his opponent, Daniel Webster, as Taliban Dan. Grayson lost his District 8 Congressional seat to Webster after a highly controversial...

    Alan Grayson is crazy. He was booted from office after he knowingly edited his opponents words and after warning that, should the government spend less, humans would have to resort to cannibalism, as well as doing a terrible job. And now there's this. Grayson, having absolutely nothing to do with his time, decided to write an article on the Daily Kos entitled "Green Lantern." In it, he laments that the newly released movie isn't getting better reviews. Grayson then posits that this line (from Green Lantern #76) should have been included in the theatrical release: African-American Man: I’ve been readin’...

    On Wednesday, controversial former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) mocked former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, outlined death threats he and other Members received last year and detailed inflammatory rhetoric, asking his supporters to “stand against it.” “[T]here has been a stream of violence and threats of violence by the right wing against Democrats. [Rep. Gabrielle Giffords] warned against it, and then became a terrible victim of it. Palin has instigated it, and then tried to pretend that it doesn’t exist,” Grayson wrote in an e-mail to supporters. Grayson said it was Palin’s appearance on “The Sean Hannity Show,” where she complained...
  • Grayson: Palin to Blame for Giffords Shooting

    Pundit Press ^ | 1/19/11 | Thomas Ferdousi
    Disgraced former Congressman Alan Grayson has apparently not got enough attention from his two year stint as a Representative. Grayson also did not seem to get the Democrats' new memo regarding 'civility' in politics. He is now openly blaming former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for the shooting. Grayson was ousted last November by Daniel Webster in one of the closest-watched House races. He was defeated by the convincing margin of 18 points after barely winning in the Democratic wave year of 2008. He was unrepentant-- and in fact, even more bombastic than usual: "Reacting to Palin's defense of her controversial...
  • Grayson Blames Palin For Arizona Shooting (Just go away Alan)

    National Journal ^ | 1/19/11 | Jessica Taylor
    Former Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) places blame directly on Sarah Palin and Republicans for last week's deadly Arizona shooting in an email to supporters on Wednesday. Grayson, a one-term Democrat who was ousted by Rep. Daniel Webster (R) by 18 points in November, is widely expected to run again in 2012. And while the note isn't an explicit appeal for money, there is a "contribute" link at the bottom of the message. "When I opened my web browser yesterday, at, there was Sarah Palin, smiling at me," Grayson writes. "'Oh God,' I said to myself, 'what has she done...

    Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida, the fiery leftist and Republican hater whose offensive comments about Republicans may well have cost him his seat last November, gets a fairly fond send-off in Monday's New York Times. Reporter Michael Barbaro, previously known for his hostile coverage of Wal-Mart, called Grayson the “pugnaciously partisan, verbal-bomb-tossing, liberal folk hero of the 111th Congress,” and the headline and text box are complimentary. “Enter: Swinging. Exit: Much the Same Way.” The text box: “In or out of Congress, Alan Grayson is a man of strong views.” Barbaro only briefly dealt with Grayson’s history of foul...

    ORLANDO, Fla. — He has zero faith in the incoming speaker of the House, John A. Boehner, whom he calls a “tool of special interest.” He derides the Tea Party’s successes as “bought and paid for by the enormously rich and the selfish.” And he can barely contain distaste for his Republican successor, whose views he sums up as “bizarre fundamentalist.” Representative Alan Grayson, a Democrat from Florida’s Eighth Congressional District, is leaving office on Wednesday much as he entered it two years ago — as the pugnaciously partisan, verbal-bomb-tossing, liberal folk hero of the 111th Congress.

    Rep. Grayson fires back at George WillBy Christina Wilkie - 12/06/10 07:01 PM ET Outgoing Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) had the dubious honor this year of being named “America’s Worst Politician” in a Newsweek column by conservative author and commentator George Will. ITK recently asked Grayson what he thought of the column, causing the controversial progressive to ask aloud, “I wonder if [George Will] ever comes out of the small dark room he works out of?” Grayson, who lost his reelection bid last month, then appeared to answer his own question, saying, “I guess he did, long enough to attack...
