Alan Grayson tries to throw himself under a bus

David Martosko reports:

On Saturday in Orlando, Fla., former Florida Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson ran a red light in his Mercedes-Benz and slammed into a public transit bus. Two Floridians were injured, according to WESH-TV2.

Grayson served just one term in the House of Representatives before losing a re-election bid to Republican Daniel Webster. He is running for Congress again this year, and was on his way to a noontime $1,000-per-plate fundraising event featuring Robert F. Kennedy Jr. when he caused the collision…

Neither Grayson nor his passenger was hurt in the accident on Saturday.

Of course not. Grayson is a politician. He takes the risks and other people suffer the consequences.

Alan Grayson’s traffic safety plan: “Don’t get hit by my Benz. And if you do get hit by my Benz, die quickly.” He really cares about the people of Florida who aren’t directly in his path. If those folks didn’t want to get hit by a millionaire on his way to a $1,000-a-plate fundraiser, they shouldn’t have taken the bus.

Guess we can add those two injured people to all the innocent victims of the Kennedy family. It’s quite a list, isn’t it?

You can see the results of Grayson’s arrogance, irresponsibility, and negligence here. Well, the immediate results.

P.S. David Freddoso adds: “Just wait till he sues his victims.”

P.P.P.S. Orlando Sentinel, 11/24/10: Alan Grayson gets the most parking freebies at Orlando International Airport.

During the 12 months that ended Sept. 30, U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D- Orlando, United Kingdom Consul Dean Churm and former U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Orlando, each used more than 50 days of free parking, under a privilege the airport extends to elected officials and local dignitaries…

Grayson, the bombastic congressman who lost his bid for re-election this month, was the biggest user, parking at the airport terminal garage 34 times for a total of 140 days — at a cost of up to $2,380.

Good. Alan Grayson should keep his cars parked as much as possible.
