Oh goodness, a month ago Alan Grayson called some lobbyist lady a “K Street whore” and now the Internet has gotten a hold of the secret whore tapes. This was a terribly inappropriate thing to say, and as you can imagine, absolutely nothing has ever pleased The POLITICO more.
Observe as they run what appears to be nothing more than some “color quotes” that were cut from previous it’s-only-a-matter-of-time-before-Alan-Grayson-literally-murders-someone pieces presented in a completely random order:
“There’s no call for that language. No call for it. That’s absurd. If he was standing here now, I’d say that to him,” said Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.)
“He’s out of control,” added Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who is vice chairwoman of the House Republican Conference.
The remarks are the latest to surface in a string of controversial statements by Grayson, who said on the Alex Jones radio show that he believes Robertson, a former Enron lobbyist, is not qualified to pass judgment on intricate financial matters.
It’s clear that his colleagues’ opinion of him has suffered.
“Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?” asked Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)
House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer defended Robertson, whom he said he knows.
“I think it’s inappropriate and unfair,” the Maryland Democrat said. He decried the “heated rhetoric” that he said interferes with the ability solve problems.
Meaning Alan Grayson has probably already literally murdered someone.
