Rep. Grayson accused of pushing estranged wife

Staffer Says Wife Assaulted Rep. Alan Grayson

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Florida U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson's wife has accused him of pushing her during an argument over the weekend, but he claims the allegations are a lie.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed Tuesday that it was investigating a reported domestic violence incident between Grayson and his wife, Lolita, but no charges have been filed.

Grayson's office released a statement denying his wife's accusations. Grayson says he never touched his wife, even after she physically attacked him.

Grayson's wife filed for divorce in January, and the central Florida Democrat claims he was attempting to visit his children when the incident occurred.

My ex shoved me one time, and we were not in divorce at the time. But, because of that, I insisted we go to counseling. He looked the counselor right in the face and lied. He said he never laid a hand on me. So, who am I inclined to believe? Hmmmmmmm.....

He's an arrogant, obnoxious, leftist liberal lunatic who is the typical Democrat who believes he's above it all politically when he's just an elitist snob.

A tactic often used in divorce proceedings to extract financial and other concessions from the spouse. Rep. Grayson's divorce is HIS business. This is a tough time for his family and we should give them their privacy.

Typical AOL/Huffington Post Liberal Fluff headline, to wit;
“”Rep. Grayson Accused of Pushing Estranged Wife””
NOW...If he was a Republican, the headline most definitely would read:

“”REPUBLICAN Rep. Grayson Batters Wife. Rams Her Into Door Causing Massive Bruises. Police Start Major Investigation Into Vicious, Brutal Attack.””

You nailed it!
They are a propaganda arm of the Dem. party rather than a news organization

So if not living there, is his new residence still in his district?

Grayson proves that ANYONE can be elected and reelected. Is he the best that his district can offer up? Guess he is not the only dumb***.

This congressman is an absolute jerk and should have gone directly to jail but because he is a congressman he gets a pass. Whatever happened to the domestic violence laws. I can see that once again if you are a person with power you get a free pass..... Shame on the authorities.

Generalize much? Did it occur to you that one of the two parties involved is lying AND that it just might be the estranged wife who is looking for a leg up in trying to get a trumped up protection order?

Lol, you are so correct. Jail is only for a large sector of the population. Funny how this passes over the majority’s head.
