Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) Alleged to Have Shoved Estranged Wife; Daily Beast Omits Party ID

March 5th, 2014 12:46 AM

Here's another entry for the "name that party" file. Ambulance-chasing lawyer cum melodramatically hyper-partisan Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson (Fla.) has been accused by his estranged wife of violently shoving her during a dispute.

The Orlando Sentinel has the story. The paper buried the party affiliation at the tail-end of the article, but they at least mentioned the "die quickly!" demagogue's party affiliation. The Daily Beast website picked up on the item for it's "Cheat Sheet" digest [screen capture follows page break], but omitted any party reference in its 75-word brief [excerpted in full below the page break]:

The wife of Florida's Orlando Rep. Alan Grayson was granted a temporary protective injunction against her husband for allegedly pushing her against a door and injuring her at their home this past weekend. Lolita Grayson filed for divorce two months ago after 24 years of marriage, saying it was "irretrievably broken." Rep. Grayson's press secretary responded in a statement that the claims are "absolutely false, completely unfounded, and clearly designed to vilify and harm" him.
