Alan Grayson’s KKK-Tea Party Comparison Still Under Fire
Republicans continued attacking U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., for comparing the tea party to the Ku Klux Klan but the Florida Democrat tried to shift the conversation by focusing on a banking bill he is launching.
Earlier in the week, Grayson sent out a fundraising email to supporters in which a burning cross was used for the first “t” in “tea party.” Republicans piled on Grayson, with even more GOP leaders and conservatives taking aim at him on Wednesday.
Responding to Grayson’s comment, conservative group FreedomWorks is gathering petitions demanding the congressman apologize.
