5. Alan was well loved on DU, and even posted here

I, for one, after seeing our best and brightest fighters be taken down by false or embellished accusations, will not throw Alan under the bus like that.

His eldest daughter disputes her mother's claims.


The couple's oldest daughter issued a statement to POLITICO, saying her father had done nothing wrong throughout the marriage. Skye Grayson, 21, said she and her siblings did not want to be “pawns in a game of power” with an unnamed “political opponent.”

“My mother has always struggled with emotional issues,” said Skye Grayson, who noted that several of the older children chose to live with their dad. “She physically lashed out at me, my siblings and our father, and then blamed us for it, victimizing us. This resulted in a considerably troubled childhood home.”

Skye Grayson herself was accused at one point of domestic abuse by her mother. In November 2013, Lolita Grayson told the Orange County Sheriff's Office that her daughter slapped the phone out of her hand as she dialed 911 after an argument erupted over Skye Grayson smoking in her car. No arrests were made.


The couple's 18-year-old daughter, Skye Grayson, wrote an email, forwarded to investigators by her father's attorney, stating that her mother was the one who became physical.

"She continued to yell at my father, pushed him and slapped him in the face," Skye Grayson wrote. "At no time did my father hit or push my mother. In fact, my father backed away from my mother when she became physically aggressive."

He may very well be guilty, but I leave open the strong possibility that she also may have mental health issues and anger issues. If you want to give credit for a woman's testimony, what about her grown daughter's word?
