THE HILL: Grayson’s wife drops restraining order.

The estranged wife of Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) dropped a temporary restraining order against the congressman on Wednesday.

“Ms. Carson-Grayson has apparently dropped the petition for injunction that she levied against the Congressman last week, and will no longer pursue a restraining order against him. Ms. Carson-Grayson’s complaint was voluntarily dismissed today,” Lauren Doney, a spokesman for the congressman said in a statement.

Last week, Grayson denied pushing Lolita Carson-Grayson after a judge granted a temporary protective injunction against him at the time. The two filed for divorce in January.

“While this is certainly positive news, we want to emphasize that these baseless charges should never have been brought in the first place,” Doney said.

Abuse/domestic violence charges made during a divorce proceeding are presumptively bogus, but Grayson is a hothead, so who knows?
