‘I Want You to Lose’: Harry Reid Reportedly Snapped at Dem Rep. for Being ‘Disruptive’


grayson reidIt’s rare for an intra-party feud to be so public, and yet that appears to be what’s happening between Harry Reid and Alan Grayson.

Grayson has a reputation for being remarkably outspoken. His first big claim to fame was declaring that the GOP’s health care plan is “don’t get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly.” Since then, he has made bold pronouncements about how much Democrats love him, asked a reporter if he was a “shitting robot,” called a female lobbyist a “K street whore,” and, oh yeah, came under fire for alleged domestic abuse.

After a report came out months ago about the ethical issues surrounding Grayson being both a congressman and a hedge fund manager, Reid publicly called on him to drop his Senate bid, saying his actions are ‘disgraceful” and that “it seems like he has no moral compass.”
