Alan Grayson On Benghazi Committee: I Will Be The GOP's 'WORST & LAST NIGHTMARE'
Rep. Alan Grayson hopes he's appointed to the Benghazi Committee because he says that somebody has to tell the truth.
Rep. Alan Grayson, the progressive from Florida really hopes that he'll be appointed to Trey Gowdy's House select committee on Benghazi.
Sharpton: Some Democrats are saying boycott. Others are saying we should go in. There's even a petition to make you, you the sole Democrat on that committee. Would you be the Republicans worst nightmare if you were the only Democrat on that committee, Congressman Grayson?
Grayson: I would be their worst, worst nightmare. I'd be their worst and last nightmare.
Sharpton: Would you do it?
Grayson: Absolutely. Somebody's got to tell the truth. Somebody's got to tell the truth.
Alan Grayson made his bones by waging a one man war against Iraq Contractor Fraud. Here's what he said about it.
When I saw that the Bush administration was doing nothing about fraud in Iraq, I revived a law going back to the Civil War that allowed whistleblowers to bring lawsuits in the name of the U.S. government. I filed case after case, which were promptly greeted by the Bush administration with gag orders -- gag orders that they kept in place for years. They didn't want any more bad news coming out of Iraq.
So I went on CNN, spoke to the New York Times and the Washington Post, and told America whatever I could say without violating those gag orders. And when the Bush administration finally let one case out from under those gag orders -- and declined to prosecute it -- I took that case to trial, and won a $14 million judgment. It was the third-largest judgment for whistleblowers in the 143-year history of that law.
He was a one man wrecking crew to all the fraud and waste that was going on in Iraq at our expense right under the Bush administration's noses. If anybody thinks he's going to punt away a chance at doing the right thing if he is placed on Gowdy's committee then they have another thing coming to them.

7. If Grayson were the only Dem on the committee, would he get the share of time
that is allocated to the Democrats? If so, that sounds like a brilliant move for the Dems. He would either make them so angry their heads would explode in public, or else they would have to shut down the Kangaroo Court because the media would be loving that show too much.
Doing that will gin up support from the true believers, but those who want to know the truth will see the truth. If democrats cannot participate and be willing to look for the truth they will be seen as hiding something.
Alan Grayson being appointed to the committee will signal that the Democrats are more interested in hiding the truth than in finding out the truth and having unanswered questions answered.

9. You will have to get Pelosi to assign him to it.
And she probably will not because she has to play nice with them.

It doesn't matter to the geriatric hippies. You could produce 20 emails and verified video evidence of PIAPS pulling a trigger and they wouldn't believe it and Turdson would prance around calling everyone a liar.Life is hard (D)Ummies. It's even harder when you're stupid.

If DUmbasses think this is brilliant then I hope it happens.
Every thing they think is genius makes normal people shake their head in disgust.

Wouldn't be surprised if he ended up like Cummings, where he tries to filibuster a congressional hearing only to have it come out that HE was also in on the scheme.

Miss Nancy "plays nice" with Republicans? In what inverted parallel universe?

There is no way in hell Gowdy is going to let that insane clown on his committee.
Dream on DUmbasses.Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

He's a one-man wrecking crew all right, but for the venerable institution of Congress, not for the Republicans.
