Democrat Alan Grayson Calls Federal Reserve Senior Advisor a "K Street Whore"

Put this guy's picture next to the word misogynist in the dictionary. Amanda Carpenter has the details at The Conservatives:

Florida Democrat Alan Grayson has a reputation for inflammatory rhetoric, but he took it even further when showing his disdain for Federal Reserve senior advisor Linda Robertson by calling her a "K Street whore" in a recent radio interview.

"This lobbyist, this K street whore, is trying to teach me about economics," Mr. Grayson fumed in a segment for a radio program hosted by Alex Jones on the Genesis Communications Network.
"This K street whore is trying to teach me about economics," Mr. Jones repeated back to the congressman. "Who was that particular K street whore?"

"I don't remember her name," Mr. Grayson, who once worked as an economist and conveyed he did not feel Ms. Robertson was qualified to lecture Congress on financial matters, said. "This was several month ago, but you can look it up, the lobbyist who was the head lobbyist for Enron was hired with our taxpayer money to try and spend this office effort to try and get transparency at the Federal Reserve."

Mr. Jones confirmed later in his show, Mr. Grayson was referring to Ms. Robertson. A short and a long form version of the audio clip have been uploaded to YouTube.

Mr. Grayson's spokesman Todd Jurkowski declined to comment on the exchange when asked by the Washington Times for clarification.

What a pig. I mean, really, does he kiss his mother with that mouth? That he refers to anyone in such a disgusting manner is unbecoming language from a member of the United States House of Representatives.

Where does Nancy Pelosi stand on Grayson's calling a female Federal Reserve senior advisor a whore? More importantly, where do his constituents stand?

Dee:

This guy is a complete douchebag and probably plays with himself because no woman or man, for that matter, would go near this greasy bastard. Does he ever shower and wash his hair? He is disgusting to even look at on the TV.

Congressman Grayson, your 15 minutes of fame are up and you are just totally annoying and completely useless now. Stop embarrassing yourself and go away.

Alan Grayson's comments CANNOT be held against him...regardless of what name he has called the "Senior Advisor" of the Federal Reserve.

Alan Grayson CANNOT be held accountable for his actions on the floor of the House of Representatives.

And Alan Grayson certainly CANNOT be asked to explain his various comments reqarding any and all who might disagree with him.

Because he is not merely "Alan Grayson".

He is Alan Grayson...(D)

kathie:

The democrats have gone off the deep end, what was Joy thinking as well. God help us. Obama has succeeded in bringing the despicable out of the closet. No wonder Bush ignored them, saying anything would have been useless. Most adults hope to have grown up conversations about differences. Bush must have known it would have been impossible with this bunch.

Victory is Ours:

Odd that this report makes no mention of Ms. Robertson's affiliation with ENRON.

Grayson spokesman Todd Jurkowski defended the comments, and said they were unearthed from an interview weeks ago to attack the GOP's new main enemy. "She attacked the Congressman and his efforts to promote a Republican bill to audit the Federal Reserve," Jurkowski said in an e-mail this evening. "She actually questioned his understanding of the difference between fiscal and monetary policy. This is [a] person who used to be the chief lobbyist for Enron attacking the intelligence and motives of a Congressman who used to be an economist."

Can't have facts like that clogging up a good clucking, now can we...?

Patrick:

Vic:

You have to be one of the biggest tools in this forum. Obama used to work for ACORN. How do you feel about that? What names can I call Obama because of his ties to that criminal enterprise? Only a liberal Democrat will try to defend someone who calls a woman a whore.

And at what point does being a Democrat cease to insulate this fool Grayson from saying one idiotic and inflammatory statement after another? It is this utter lack of accountability on the part of the Democratic Party that only encourages this kind of incivility and bad behavior. They never admit they are wrong and in Grayson's case he doubles and triples down on stupid and the leadership of his party won't say anything to him to discourage him from continuing making these kinds of rude comments. Will Obama dare to weigh in and say something to slap down the radical left's newest hero or does he only feel the need to criticize his opposition? I think I know the answer to my own question...

"You have to be one of the biggest tools in this forum. Obama used to work for ACORN. How do you feel about that?"

How I feel about that is irrelevant. Why are you trying to change the subject?

"And at what point does being a Democrat cease to insulate this fool Grayson from saying one idiotic..." blah, blah blah,blah, blah...

Nonsensical.

The facts are that Grayson is under attack by the GOP and not reporting that his comments were directed at someone who was an ENRON LOBBYIST is rather disingenuous.

Oh yeah, THAT's why you tried to change the subject.

hcddbz:

1. Linda was never tied to or implicated in any wrong doing at Enron.
Red herring 1
Beside lobbyist are good people.

A lot of those lobbyists, whether you like it or not, represent real Americans," the New York senator said in defense of her decision to accept campaign contributions from lobbyists. "They represent nurses, they represent social workers, yes, they represent corporations that employ a lot of people."

2. She worked in Treasury for 8 years so she is qualified to talk on economics

3. According to Dem Clinton had the best economy in the history of the world and who advised all three of Slick willies Treasury secretaries why it was Linda.

4. She was VP at Johns Hopkins University in charge of Government, community and public affairs. She was in Academia ! I thought that made one an expert.

What I want to know is the details of the discussions. After all we do not want to practice the politics of assocation or engage in rhetoric of hate?

But that only applies if you have an R after your name.

And really with the largest deficit in the world history
9% unemployment after a failed stimulus package with an outlook of 10% next year.
The US dollar in free fall
Congress does not need any advice on economics they are doing just fine

Oh for the return of civility in government.

Pass the popcorn as Liberal Dems go after Progressive dems.

24usmcr:

If class were gas, Representative Grayson (D) would not have enough to power a piss ant's motor scooter around the inside track of a Cheerio...

BTW- What difference does it make if she lobbied for ENRON? How could that possibly mitigate the behavior of Representative Grayson (D)?

PS- The spectacle of ENRON (and much of the Dot Com bubble, for that matter) can be traced to two changes in law in the early '90s brought about by Senator Chris Dodd (D) and the Democrat Congress and President Bill Clinton (D):

1. The first change was in tax law. The Democrats decided it evil corporations should no longer be allowed to reduce their taxable income by writing off the portion of executive salaries that exceeded $1 million. After all, other than athletes, actors, and other intelligentsia, why should anyone need that much money???? As a result, corporate boards of directors shifted the emphasis of the executive compensation plans from salary to stock options. This caused the corporations to shift their strategies from strengthening their balance sheets to rapid growth in stock values. This, oh btw, made those 'greedy executives' MUCH WEALTHIER than they ever would have become under the previous tax code.

2. The second change was to allow the Big 8 accounting firms, which heretofore could provide accounting services OR consulting services to a client/corporation BUT NOT BOTH, to provide both services to the same client. Consulting services provide exponentially larger revenues to the Big 8 firms than do accounting services. Thus, when ENRON exec's started cooking up schemes to make the stock prices go up (you know, the kind of risky schemes that make accountants puke in their waste baskets), the consulting side of the Big 8 firm overruled the accounting side when they tried to stop the exec's from implementing the strategies.

Here's what really pisses off the liberals: no matter how they change the rules of the game to punish the achievers, the achievers always find ways to make even more money under the new rules.

There, I feel MUCH better! Thanks for your patience and consideration while I vented my frustration. Peace Out...

I Live in Florida's 8th Congressional district where this circus clown is suppose to represent us. He is not liked by many here and got in on Obama's coat tails and the luck of having an unpopular opponent.

Please help us unseat him and support conservative Republican candidate Dan Finelli. His website is www.electdan2010.org. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not only did he not feel the need to criticize Grayson he felt the man deserved his praise! Is it me or does Obama often show a lack of respect for women?

Because he's watching who his colleagues on both sides of the aisle are talking to.

I'm sorry that strong language offends you all so much.

I presume you were just as angry when Dick Cheney told a member of the Senate to go "f" himself? Or when GWB called a reporter a "major league a*hole"?

You want facts, ok.

Why whine about, and divert attention from, the fact obama has again broken his promise not to allow lobbyists in his admin?

Robertson was a lobbyist for ENRON. No problem with that huh?

FACT nitwit.

And BTW, you first comment, that is in fact a diversion from the topic at hand, is HI-larious in the sense you quote another diversion offered by Todd Jurkowski.

Note he never addresses greyson's abhorrent comment but points to the shiny-ball that is Robertson.

jim x - "I presume you were just as angry when Dick Cheney told a member of the Senate to go "f" himself? Or when GWB called a reporter a "major league a*hole"?

Um, only slightly.

Not because the words are any more or less intolerant, but because both Chaney's and Bushs words were never meant for public consumption. They were private words caught on an open mic.

Opposed to greyson who thinks nothing of making a public spectacle of himself.

Which is fine, his choice, but I suspect he won't have a public job come next election cycle.
