Pelosi Confesses Her Love for an Accused Domestic Abuser Running for Congress

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that she loves former Florida Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL), a man who has been accused by an ex-wife of domestic abuse for decades.

“I love Alan Grayson. He was a very progressive member of Congress,” Pelosi said during an interview with the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday.

Grayson served in Congress from 2009-2011 and again from 2013-2017. His 2016 reelection campaign was derailed after an ex-wife came forward and accused Grayson of decades of domestic abuse.

According to Politico:

“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 vehemently denied the allegations and alleged that “Lolita Grayson battered him in 2014.”

Despite Grayson’s denial, the allegations stuck and resulted in Grayson losing supporters, staff and eventually the Democratic primary to former Rep. Patrick Murphy.

Grayson’s political career isn’t over, though. He announced on Tuesday that he would challenge Rep. Darren Michael Soto (D-FL) for his old Congressional seat.

Pelosi’s only objection to Grayson’s attempted return to the Democratic House Caucus in 2018 doesn’t have anything to do with the allegations of domestic abuse. Rather, Pelosi is upset that Grayson has decided to challenge a fellow Democrat for the seat.
