$73,000 Of Taxpayer Money On Alan Grayson DVD

Grayson Bills Taxpayers For DVD Of Term’s Highlights

If U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson were a rock star, his latest PR blitz – a DVD sent to tens of thousands of Central Florida residents – would be called Grayson’s Greatest Hits.

The 90-minute disc features video highlights from his first term in office, including one of him grilling Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke and another in which the Orlando Democrat preaches on the need to teach schoolchildren about the U.S. Constitution.

The DVD comes wrapped inside a mailer covered with promotional slogans: “Congressman Alan Grayson, Hard at Work for You,” “He works hard. He pays attention. He gets things done,” and “Video DVD Inside: Watch Congressman Grayson in Action!”

In many ways, it’s the perfect campaign video – with one key difference.

Thanks to perks given to all members of Congress, it’s not Grayson’s campaign but taxpayers who footed the nearly $73,000 bill to produce and mail the DVD to 100,000 homes in Grayson’s district of Lake, Marion, Orange and Osceola counties.

If you are surprised, you haven’t been paying attendtion. Oh, and get this; Alan Grayson didn’t include his “Republicans want you to die quickly” part:

Of course, I don’t know about you, but I am Pro-Life. So is Patricia Sullivan (CAN-R-FL-08) and that is why I support her taking over for Alan Grayson starting next year.
