“A Florida judge Tuesday issued a temporary protective injunction against U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson following an allegation from Grayson’s wife that he shoved and injured her during an incident this past weekend,” Twitchy notes, which linking to the above Tweet, which notes, “Google image search of Alan Grayson had this in the top 5 results. Awkward….”
Indeed. But then, Grayson has been a study in brutish awkwardness, including the 2009 video in which he made physical contact with the person recording him, the December 2013 report from left-leaning Politico that the Florida Democrat lost $18 million in a Ponzi scheme, and one of Allahpundit’s favorite quotes at Hot Air:
“Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?” asked Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.)
As of Tuesday afternoon, here is what the Orlando Sentinel was reporting:
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.
Allahpundit-style exit question, especially after Weiner, Filner, and now the accusations involving Grayson: “Paging Debbie Wasserman Schultz: How’s that War on Women meme going now?”
