Just how desperate is Democrat Congressman Alan Grayson to get re-elected now that even liberals such as Contessa Brewer have questioned both his credibility and ethics? So desperate that Grayson is now pleading for donations at the Democratic Undergound. And in keeping with his normal operating procedure, Grayson accompanied his donation plea with a flat out lie. Here is Grayson making his pitch to the DUers with his lie highlighted:
On Friday, the DC newspaper "Politico" reported that:
(a) "conservative outside groups" have now spent over $9 million "slamming vulnerable House Democrats," and
(b) the total against me will reach "at least $1.7 million by the end of next week."
Think about that. I am only one member of the U.S. House of Representatives, out of 435. I represent one-quarter of one percent of America. And yet roughly TWENTY PERCENT of spending in the entire country by these shadowy right-wing groups has been spent to defeat . . .
One "little" problem. When you actually go to the Politico article referenced by Grayson you can see that the $1.7 million has been designated to defeat Alan Grayson AND Congresswoman Suzanne Kosmas:
Central Florida appears to be ground zero for the outside group attacks, with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and 60 Plus Association set to spend at least $1.7 million by the end of next week battering Reps. Suzanne Kosmas and Alan Grayson.
Of course, even after discovering that "Asylum Al" has been lying to them, the DUers will undoubtedly continue to pour money into his lost cause. After all, that site mocked even by many liberals for being somewhat sanity-challenged is happy for any sort of attention from a leftwing "celebrity" no matter how unbalanced he might appear to others. Some sample DUer comments squealing with pleasure at the attention being paid them by Grayson (or a staffer posting for him):
Spit in their eye..and laugh in their faces. Alan, you got balls. But, you know they are gunning for you and they will celebrate hugely if they can beat you.
Hi Mr. Grayson, can you please clone yourself?
Sir, I have never seen a politician quite like you. I will vote for you as President someday.. You are a man of honor. You speak truth to POWER
This DUer might think Grayson speaks truth to POWER but apparently the Congressman was unable to speak truth to him...or his fellow DUers.
You can see more DUers falling over each other to praise (and donate to) Alan Grayson at the DUmmie FUnnies.
