Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL), darling of the far left for his exaggerated, over the top criticisms of Republicans - including his contention that opposition to health care reform by the GOP means they want you to "die quickly" - has written a letter to AG Eric Holder asking that a political opponent who runs a website called "mycongressmanisnuts.com." be fined and imprisoned for 5 years.
Mark Matthews of the Orlando Sentinel writes:
Specifically, Grayson accuses Republican activist Angie Langley of lying to federal elections. His four-page complaint highlights the fact that the Clermont resident lives outside his district, but that Langley still uses the term "my" in "mycongressmanisnuts.com."
"Ms. Langley has deliberately masqueraded as a constituent of mine, in order to try to create the false appearance that she speaks for constituents who don't support me," writes Grayson. "[She] has chosen a name for her committee that is utterly tasteless and juvenile."
Grayson's office did not respond with comment other than to confirm the letter exists - including its request that Langley be fined and "imprisoned for five years."
Langley did not immediately respond with comment.
Her webpage, which imitates Grayson's own congressmanwithguts.com, was launched this fall as a way to raise money against him. He has infuriated Republicans this year, most famously by saying the GOP healthcare plan was for sick patients to "die quickly."
She had hoped for a major fundraising "money bomb" on Dec. 16, but the website shows that only 92 donors have given $3,725 as of Friday afternoon. Grayson's complaint to the attorney general was dated on Dec. 15 - one day before the website's planned fundraising event.
It isn't surprising that this nutcase can't stand criticism. What is amazing is that this tiny little website comes in for such overblown attention from the congressman.
Evidently, he's paranoid in addition to being loony.
