Alan Grayson and Harry Reid in MASSIVE CAT FIGHT!!!

Alan Grayson and Harry Reid in MASSIVE CAT FIGHT!!!

Can they both lose?

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.

The NY Times reports, Alan Grayson’s Double Life: Congressman and Hedge Fund Manager:

The hedge fund manager boasted that he had traveled to “every country” in the world, studying overseas stock markets as he fine-tuned an investment strategy to capitalize on global companies’ suffering because of economic or political turmoil.

But the fund manager had an even more distinctive credential to showcase in his marketing material in June 2013: He was a “U.S. congressman,” Representative Alan Grayson, Democrat of Florida, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Now he is also among the leading Democratic candidates for one of Florida’s United States Senate seats.

This highly unusual dual role — a sitting House lawmaker running a hedge fund, which until recently had operations in the Cayman Islands — has led to an investigation of Mr. Grayson by the House Committee on Ethics.

Harry Reid is asking Grayson to drop Grayson’s Senate bid, claiming Grayson has no moral compass:

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Friday called for U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson of Orlando to drop out of the race for a Senate seat, but Grayson angrily denounced the move and said he has no plans to follow Reid’s suggestion.

Reid said in a statement that Grayson claims to be progressive but seems to have “no moral compass.” He said Grayson used his office to unethically promote a hedge fund that until recently had been based in the Cayman Islands.

“These deeply troubling allegations should disqualify anyone from a seat in the U.S. Senate,” Reid said. “His actions aren’t just disgraceful to the Democratic Party, they disgrace the halls of Congress.”

Grayson is running in the Democratic primary to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio.

Hey, if there is anyone who knows about lacking a moral compass, it’s Harry Reid:

Grayson is hitting back (h/t Hot Air):

Suggesting that Reid “may well prefer corrupt Establishment errand boy” and rival Democrat Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.), Grayson excoriated the retiring Nevada Senator in an email to Independent Journal Review:

“I’m running against a rigged system and the Washington Establishment, so it’s no surprise that its departing figurehead, who failed so badly in the 2014 Senate races, relies on a false and misleading hyped story to try to pressure me out of this race. The reason why he is making such an absurd statement at all is that he knows that I’m well ahead in the polls, and heading for a strong primary victory.” …

“Sen. Reid managed to find a way to lose six out of seven open Senate seats in 2014, and lose six incumbent Democrats when the GOP lost none. Now he is personally attacking the clear choice of Florida Democrats, making the party into a circular firing squad.”

Who do we want to win this cat fight?

This is a tough one.

Can they both lose?

When your rival is busy shooting himself in the foot — let him.

I would rather the eventual Republican candidate win, but if Grayson gets the Senate seat, it will be the gift that keeps on giving.

Can they both lose?</b.

These two are sooo bad, I can't decide which side to pick.

If Harry Reid calls a fellow Democrat out for corruption, it must be worse than we know at this point. It also may be that the DNC’s polling shows Grayson being drubbed in the Senate race. People forget that Grayson was swept into office on Obama’s coattails in 2008,beating a tired Republican who’d lost local support by voting against the Iraq surge. Grayson was so obnoxious during his first term that he only got 40% of the vote in 2010. He then moved to a different district for 2012, and ran for Congress again in a poorer area with a large Democrat population using his millions to overrun an opponent who had no money and no state GOP support. I think he is generally despised here in Florida, but, then again, 48% voted for Charlie Quisling Crist in 2014.

    Google Alan Grayson divorce. There isn’t likely to be much of a gender gap in the Democrat’s favor should Grayson get the nomination.

Just as bad are the GOPe hacks we voted in (hired, actually) to do to the likes of Reid and Grayson that they are doing to each other. Instead, the GOPe hires Boehner, Prebus and McConnell and sabotages us.

All pieces of garbage.

OK, the man who LIED on the Senate floor thinks you are bad for the party? That’s bad, since it isn’t about being too ethical for the party..

Reid is worried that Grayson’s well publicized hardball tactics against his wife of many years, Lolita, will not endear him to the women of Florida. The divorce kept Floridians amused for almost 18 months with all the charges and counter charges. When it was finally settled late last Spring, the marriage was ruled to be annulled because after 25 years and 5 children Grayson kept insisting it had never been legitamate in the first place.

Bigamy, mistresses, cruelty, credit card fraud, gold digging and a delay caused by a leaky breast implant, this one had it all. Lolita even applied for food stamps at one point to protest what she claimed was Grayson’s parsimony towards their children. Public health officials even became involved over a leaking septic tank in the jointly owned home that she claimed she did not have the money to repair.
