House Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) upset a group of central Florida Republicans on Thursday night when he crashed their meeting and confronted them about an allegation that they had spied on a Democratic campaign group.To which Grayson said "Now I'mma let ya finish Republicans, but Barack Obama is the greatest President of all time. OF ALL TIME!"
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Grayson arrived at a Perkins restaurant where some 30 Orange County Republicans were meeting. Amid loud catcalls, he read from a flier that accused the Republicans of infiltrating Organizing for America, President Barack Obama's campaign organization, and promised more details to come on the allegation.
"I want you to know, this is how low you've all sunk to -- to the point you're spying on people," Grayson told the angry crowd. Cell phone video footage of the incident shows a number of meeting attendees demanding that Grayson apologize for crashing the meeting.
"Show some class, Grayson, apologize," a voice can be heard saying on the video.
Then he got some N'awlins Benedict and an apple pie to go from the Perkins.
No really, it totally happened. Totally.
I do wonder what Grayson's got up his sleeve, however. Infiltrating OFA? That might be giving the Republicans a little too much credit. Grayson better have the goods, but if he's bullshitting I'm going to be real disappointed in the guy.
