Accused Wife-Beater Alan Grayson Wants to Run for Congress Again

Former Democratic Congressman and failed 2016 Senate candidate Alan Grayson said that he would like to run for a Congressional seat in Florida again in 2018 during an interview with Politico published on Tuesday.

Grayson’s announcement that he is interested in running for Congress again might cause headaches for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), given allegations by Grayson’s ex-wife of decades of domestic abuse.

Politico reported in 2016:

“Rep. Alan Grayson’s ex-wife repeatedly went to police with accusations of domestic abuse over a two-decade period, according to documents she has provided to POLITICO, revelations that come as the Florida congressman enters the final weeks of his Democratic primary campaign for Senate.”

“Lolita Grayson called police on her husband at least two times in Virginia and two more times in Florida, sought medical attention on at least two occasions and said that, in one instance, he had threatened to kill her, according to a police report.”

Grayson alleged that his “ex-wife fabricated false stories about him, in part to damage his political career.”

Despite this past controversy that might make Grayson unelectable, he expressed a desire to run for Congress in 2018 but wouldn’t tell Politico what district he would be interested in running for or give a timeframe for an announcement.

Grayson is well known for being a headline-seeker. Is this yet another example of the Floridian fanning the flames of the media, or is he seriously going to be a candidate? Stay tuned for the latest developments.
