    Alan Grayson is a douche, milking taxpayers to promote his own reelection. What a surprise. He's another one who will be going down in flames in November.

    This is the worst case of franking abuse I have ever heard of. Back before the 94 elections Franking abuse was a huge problem, but there was a lot less of it for a long time.

    I am surprised this thing would have been sent out.

    I am sure this will back fire on him badly. I think most folks dislike this kind of thing.

    Grayson knows his district. He just took liberalism a-la Ric Keller to the next level.

    I'm guessing the Orlando Sentinel is backing his Republican challenger.

    Because they reported an unethical use of taxpayer dollars? I thought that's what the media was supposed to do.

    So he's corrupt. There's a shocker.

    Wouldn't it be nice if one politician was honest and not corrupt?

    If you read the Sentinel opinion pages, the only difference between Alan Grayson and Chris Dorworth is a few million dollars.

    Funny how Grayson gets a pass and Dorworth is excoriated for having a bad business model. Maybe he should have lobbied for a bailout, like GM.
