Taxpayers Stuck With Bill for Alan Grayson Nonsense

Posted: Jul 29, 2010 12:39 PM
The only time I ever really give Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., any attention at all is in highlighting just how insanely idiotic he is.  But today, it appears the jokes on all of us.

As American taxpayers we have contributed $73,000 for Grayson to send his constituents pre-recorded DVDs with the congressman's "greatest hits." 

The Orlando-Sentinel explains:

The 90-minute disc features video highlights from his first term in office, including one of him grilling Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and another in which the Orlando Democrat preaches on the need to teach schoolchildren about the U.S. Constitution.

The DVD comes wrapped inside a mailer covered with promotional slogans: “Congressman Alan Grayson, Hard at Work for You,” “He works hard. He pays attention. He gets things done,” and “Video DVD Inside: Watch Congressman Grayson in Action!”

In many ways, it’s the perfect campaign video — with one key difference.

Thanks to perks given to all members of Congress, it’s not Grayson’s campaign but taxpayers who footed the nearly $73,000 bill to produce and mail the DVD to 100,000 homes in Grayson’s district of Lake, Marion, Orange and Osceola counties.

To Florida's Eighth Congressional District: Can you really think of no better use of taxpayer dollars?  Because apparently your representative can't.

Do the rest of us a favor and dump this buffoon in November.
