Just Gave $30 To Alan Grayson - That Boy Knows How To Fight Republicans

His fundraisers call.

I give.

That's how it works.

Republican Health Care Plan: "Don't Get Sick". If you get sick. "Die Quickly!"

Oh that pissed them off.

He had graphics.

...and he's running in a R+15 SAFE-R district. You could burn $30 in your fireplace and be as effective.

What are you doing besides criticizing how others spend their own money? /rhetorical

I crunch reams of data to identify which races are really competitive. I'll spend upwards of $100,000 on the election, and I don't like to waste my money. When you give $30 to Alan Grayson's tilt at windmills, you're not giving that money to a candidate who can actually get elected (also, someone who wasn't involved in a politically distracting divorce with accusations of domestic abuse).

...having data at your fingertips to make an informed decision is essential.

How do you pick your candidates?

When we support democratic candidates we like, we don't expect to be criticized for it here. And yet, it happens.

I love all these Dems who said, "Yeah he's too vicious and obnoxious and NOT NICE!" . When will we learn that when they go low, you kick 'em in the nuts?

Seems like Offshoring Hedge Fund Grayson has had some time to reflect on just that. Get this incompetent legislator out of Florida. He absolutely sucks, is highly abusive toward women, and has zero ethical standards.

Police usually arrest first, and let the courts decide in my experience.

There must have been no reason.

If his own daughter says he didn't do it, then I should believe her.

Just sayyyyin.

The only evidence is of her assaulting him, and it is video.

What a strange marriage.....

Grayson has been raising money for a House race since September. He hasn't even managed to put up a serious campaign website
