War on Women Chronicles: Alan Grayson under investigation in domestic violence complaint
Democrat Representative Alan Grayson has been charged with domestic violence by his wife, and is under investigation by authorities. Jeff Weiner of the Orlando Sentinel reports:
A judge has granted a temporary protective injunction against U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson after his wife filed paperwork accusing the Orlando congressman of shoving and injuring her during an incident this past weekend.
Lolita Grayson's petition for the injunction, dated Monday, says her husband pushed her against a door, causing her to fall to the ground, during a confrontation Saturday at their home on Oak Park Road near Windermere.
In a statement, Alan Grayson's press secretary, Lauren Doney, wrote that the allegations "are absolutely false, completely unfounded, and clearly designed to vilify and harm Congressman Grayson."
"Congressman Grayson firmly denies Ms. Grayson's frivolous accusations," the statement said.
The incident comes just less than two months after Lolita Grayson filed a divorce petition stating that their marriage of nearly 24 years was "irretrievably broken."
Keep in mind this is only an allegation in what sounds like a bitter divorce. Nonetheless, it makes it difficult for Grayson to utter the words “war on women” with regard to Republicans and keep a straight face.
