Even Democrat politicians Can Be Bought

We can't decide which is more interesting: That the great Joan Jett co-hosted a fundraiser for Alan "Don't Give a Damn 'Bout my Bad Reputation' Grayson in New York last week, or that the Aug. 27 reception was also co-hosted by three Wall Streeters on the same day Grayson sent a fundraising email boasting that "Wall Street bankers hate me."

At least three of the listed co-hosts - Avery Byrd, Lawrence Hui, and Mary Namorato - are in the investment business. Grayson, himself a hedge fund operator, has been hammering Democratic U.S. Senate rival patrick Murphy for receiving money from Wall Street, especially Goldman Sachs.

"When it comes to making law in the Senate, do you want Senator Goldman Sachs (D-FL) casting our votes, or do you want Senator Alan Grayson (D-FL) fighting for justice, equality, and peace?," Grayson said in another fundraising email Saturday. "Stop the Wall Street cabal from buying Florida’s U.S. Senate seat with your $3 contribution to our campaign — it’s too important to wait!"

Grayson grew up in New York, and you see can see some other big Democratic names on the invite, including Ruth Messinger, who lost the 1997 mayor's race to Rudy Giuliani, and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

A spokesman for Grayson dismissed the significance of him raising Wall Street money while decrying Wall Street money: "This is the same bogus attack that Wall Street has used against Elizabeth Warren. In 2012 and 2014, Alan Grayson was the only member for Congress to raise most of his campaign funds from small-dollar donors and this years he's raising more money from small contributions than any other senate candidate. Patrick Murphy, on the other hand, takes thousands from Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street corporations and votes exactly they way they want him to. Alan Grayson is unbought and unbossed. Patrick Murphy is a wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street."
There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.
