    He is not one of Holder’s people.

    Lawsuit Baby!

    Lawsuit! Lawsuit! Lawsuit! Lawsuit!

    His defense? ‘The Republican Bus Driver Rage Syndrome’

  • NoDemZone

    It’s Bush’s fault.

  • Sanmon

    Good thing Grayson drives a foreign car to campaign events. He may have been hurt otherwise. Lets say he was driving a Chevy Volt and a fire broke out, massive burns to his body, bad news.

  • NoDemZone

    Grayson’s Mercedes Benz ….

    Yeah,he had to hurry. He needs the money.

  • Adi

    Wot? He is not mandated to drive a Volt but rather a gas-slurping foreign car?

  • This photo should make a great political ad…and it pretty well summarizes his entire career as a political hack.

    Caption contest anyone?

    He’s a loyal member of the rich 1%er Soviet American party, nothing will happen to him.

    What a jerk.

    On what planet is that “slight damage”?

  • Patty

    If no one was hurt, THEN ROF!!!! Love it, best news ever. The slimeball!

  • Texas_Treeroach

    What desperation !!

    Are liberals now trying to throw themselves under the bus ?!!?

  • mackykam

    Sounds like a take on a book title, ” When Good Things Happen to Bad People.”

  • Was it mentioned anywhere that he walked away from the incident, or is it inferred.

  • Patty

    What a person like this does comes back 10 fold. Oh, what a happy piece of news. And again for those Grayson lovers, no injury is a good thing no matter how much I can’t stand the a person.

    Running a red light in Kissimmee or running a red light in Orlando will cost you 4 points on your license, which can cost your thousands in increased premiums. If you are between 15 to 17 years old, this means you lose some driving privileges. You will only be allowed to drive for business purposes only. This will last for 12 months or until you turn 18.

    If you are older than 18, the penalty for running a red light in Orlando depends on the amount of other traffic violations you have had in the last 5 years. More than 15 points means that you will be classified as a habitual traffic offender (HTO) and you lose your license for 5 years. Other shorter suspensions may result, such as if you received 12 points within 12 months, you may receive a 30 day suspension.

  • Patty

    sorry, this was Orlando.

  • Patty

    Really wish this would make him ineligible to run for office. But so much corruption in Washington it seems like this is just child’s play.

  • Melissa USA

    Well I hope he’s okay, I really want to see his sour puss on election night when he loses to Alan West, again.

  • Nosmo

    Hmmm…Heard he was distracted by his passenger…good thing his pecker wasn’t bitten off…

  • an observer

    Stopping at red lights is for “little people.”

  • Jimmy

    Arrest the bastid for reckless endangerment.

    Combining the driving skills of Ted Kennedy with the populist Mercedes Benz touch of adolf Hitler…the ultimate limousine liberal!!

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

    Suddenly, MY neck hurts from reading this story. I wonder if I can sue Mr. Grayson?

    To bad he lived through it

  • Hope they did a breathalyzer on him.

    If he just said he was late for the Louis Farrakhan hate speech at Berkley he might have gotten off without a citation. Just exercising his freedom of speech.

  • Edd

    God, does it get any better than this? Who says there’s no good news anymore.

  • 1RedBeard

    This would be extremely satisfying, if not for the two people who suffered injuries at the hands of that fat obnoxious blowhard Grayson. Hope they will be ok, and recover soon.

    It’s too perfect, seeing a leftie like Grayson embarrassed like this, on two levels. First of all, driving into the side of a bus (a target hard to avoid seeing) after running a red light is the province of idiots and/or drunks. Secondly, Mr. Leftie, who wants everyone but himself legislated into driving a tiny shoebox electric car, wrecks his expensive luxury barge for everyone to see.

    Schadenfreude can be SO much fun.

    Grayson is a typical moneyed leftie, saying by means of his lifestyle and political agenda, “I’ve got mine. The rest of you peons can go pound sand.”

  • What a putz

  • HeavyDee

    I wonder how this “Man of the People” is going feel when his “people” start filing the lawsuits against his worthless a$$??

  • Tim in Cali

    Grayson hits bus after running red light and injures everyone Obama threw under the bus…Gloria Allred wants Rush arrested for …umm…owning a vehicle also !!!

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    …which can cost your thousands in increased premiums.

    Unlikely to matter much to Grayson, since he probably can cover that increase rather easily.

  • Who authorized Fast & Furious?

    I know for a fact that at least 739 people were on that bus and all of them sustained horrible job ending neck injuries.

    Alan Grayson is an amateur disciple of Mestophalese. His car accident PROVES an age old law which Alan violated. …Never use the demonic arts to command malicious spirits to attack your opponents….. Such power is most dangerous to YOU. The evil projected in dark magic ritual always returns to its source, which is why so many avowed Satanists die in violant freak accidents. Alan should have listened to the wisdom of his teacher at the 3:00 mark….>> http://youtu.be/EyXc4FKO1eU

  • Pete_Bondurant


    Somebody find these passengers a good lawyer and sue him for everything. At least he did not pull a Jack Cafferty and leave the scene.

  • pat

    In my State, if the police determine that the light was run because of reckless negligence or by intent, and a person who is not the driver is injured,the driver will be charged with a felony, which will usually be pled down to a misdemeanor (a year in jail possible. In other words, this would be a serious matter.

  • Earthmover

    I heard there were 85,000 white farmers on that bus. This could be a racist attack.

  • Gride

    I am gonna pretend to be a liberal right here:

    To bad he wasn’t seriously injured.

  • Jeffery

    The bus company and the people in the bus need to file suit. The lobbyist he called a K Street Whore who was trying to teach me about economics should sue him as well.

    Oh Gloria, where are you?

    Never mind, they need a real attorney, not an ambulance chaser.

  • donh

    The ambulance chasing lawyers would normally by on this guy like zombies hungering for flesh. Unfortunately Alan comes from the John Edwards school of ambulance chasing. With an honor code among thieves nobody will touch him. The good news is his political career is now DEAD dead.

  • Adi


    Unless they all were white Christians.

    After all, everyone knows, a white Christian cannot claim “racism” under any circumstances.

    So yeah, probably the bus was filled with black Muslims.

  • donh

    #43….Chad Ridgeway already made the movie for Scottrade….Sad how dead Grayson’s chances are but he still on the cell phone to his big donors ” You me we go way back…Why spoil the fun….THE FUN…>> http://youtu.be/fccUn_8ZAW8

    “Liberals drive the economy like they drive their cars. Please America, elect (insert name) to steer us in the right direction.”

    The point is obviously missed in this story-he was driving a Mercedes because he’s one of the special people looking out for the masses who need to be driving a Dolt because of all the evil things big business is doing to them.

  • BurmaShave

    Whether or not Alan Grayson passed a breathalyzer test — if one was even administered — his main problem is that he is always thoroughly intoxicated with Kool-aid to the point of suffering from delirium tremens.

    He is an accident waiting to happen.

  • Dave-O

    Did Obama throw Grayson under the bus? Or did Grayson throw himself under the bus???

  • Bob

    Well, you know how much Democrats hate it when a “red” tells to them stop doing something. The fool just couldn’t help himself.

  • Get out of the way, I’m a “Democrat.”

  • Maybe he could get a spot in a GEICO commercial.

  • Gary

    Could only better if it had been a manure truck.

    But the real point is, Dems like Grayson see themselves as above the law, even the traffic law.
    But the accident is like a metaphor for his House career. He put himself above the law and the voters reminded him of the consequences.
