Believe it or not, this fundraising email isn't even Grayson's most offensive move to date. That prize goes to a television ad he ran against his 2010 opponent:
This unstable jackhole went on to suffer a well-earned defeat in 2010 (despite Joe Biden stumping for him), only to be re-nominated by Democrat voters in a newly-created, heavily blue district two years later. He won the general election overwhelmingly. But remember, guys, it's the Republican base that's chock full o' nutters. And since "America's worst politician" is in the news, now is as good a time as any to re-up Townhall's satirical attack ad from the 2010 cycle, which offered Grayson a taste of his own toxic medicine:
“Tea Party members have circulated countless altered pictures depicting President Obama and the First Lady as monkeys. Tea Party members also called my fellow Member of Congress, civil rights hero John Lewis, a ‘n***ger,’ and Rep. Barney Frank a ‘faggot,’” Grayson wrote verbatim in a written statement. “One could go on and on, because there is overwhelming evidence that the Tea Party is the home of bigotry and discrimination in America today, just as the KKK was for an earlier generation. If the shoe fits, wear it.”
If "the Tea Party" can be smeared as "racist" based on a handful of real and imagined incidents over several years, then all Democrats must be judged by their most deranged nutters, such as Congressman Alan Grayson.
