    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...

    One of Dena Minning’s biggest assets in her congressional bid was her boyfriend: incumbent Alan Grayson, who’s leaving the U.S. House to run for U.S. Senate. Now, after Grayson has helped raise her profile and run for his U.S. House seat, he married her over the Memorial Day Weekend and gave her his last name, according to her Monday social-media posts and The Orlando Political Observer. Dena Minning promptly became Dena Grayson on Twitter and Facebook. The largely unknown outsider in the Orlando-area district now has a potent tool in running under the name of the incumbent in a crowded...

"Shame on you. It’s not true," Grayson said, according to sources in the room. "It is true and I want you...

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump suggested this week his nearest rival for the Republican presidential nomination may be ineligible for office and won a daylong echo across the political press, despite Texas Sen. Ted Cruz's attempt to brush off the commentary. In raising the issue, Trump said Republicans should be concerned about Democrats hog-tying Cruz with a yearslong legal challenge -- and indeed an effort to do just that already is afoot. Rep.

    **SNIP** Most of the ad is standard campaign fare, and not particularly noteworthy, even though the endorsements from Sheen and Moore are several years old. Both were taken from Grayson's House campaign nearly six years ago. But at the 18-second mark, the ad gets really interesting. That is the point where Grayson - to promote his Senate bid - uses an MSNBC clip of him speaking during a congressional hearing - yet another violation of U.S. House rules. Grayson runs afoul of ethics rules on the use of official resources for campaign or political purposes, namely House Rule 11, Clause...

    One of the most memorable moments of the fight to get Obamacare passed in the first place was when Congressman Alan Grayson got on the House floor and said the Republican plan is, “Don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly.” That was the moment that put Grayson in the national spotlight, and he told Ed Schultz on Friday that in four years, the Republican plan has not changed one single iota. Regarding the spate of Obamacare hearing being organized by Republicans, Grayson said, “The Republicans have been crisis junkies now for months, if not years. They...
