We live in very dangerous times, with Democrats trying to flip the Electoral College against Trump through cajoling, and when that fails, threats and intimidation.

Alan Grayson is one of the most despicable of Democrats.

And that is saying A LOT.

So it’s quite satisfying to see Grayson exposed — once again — as a hypocrite.
