Lolita Grayson, the wife of Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson, is speaking out over her husband’s prolonged abuse, cheating, and even accused the hardliner lefty of trying to kill her.
In an interview with detectives obtained by WFTV, Grayson says “I’m done. My husband has always been hitting me for years. He’s been hitting me a lot. I’ve been quiet for years.”
Grayson says she had reached her limit because of her husband’s cheating. “I told him, ‘Handsome, I know the fact that you have been cheating for more than a year, two years,’” she told police. “He doesn’t have any remorse. He’s so happy.”
She says her husband replied by saying “You’re hurting me talking about my mistress. They are my mistresses and I’m proud of that.”
She says she also tried to talk him out of a controversial mailer in which the Congressman compares the Tea Party to the Klu Klux Klan, saying “Don’t do that. They’ve never done anything to you.” Congressman Grayson reportedly replied by saying “F*** off.”
Grayson has filed for divorce, telling authorities that she wants the Congressman to “pay everything until I die.” Grayson is the 21st richest member of Congress with an estimated net worth of nearly $17 million. Grayson made his fortune as the founder of IDT Corporation, a telecom company based out of Newark, NJ.
Grayson, who has five children, served in Congress from 2009 to 2011 before losing his first re-election bid to represent Florida’s 8th district. He is currently serving his first term as the representative from Florida’s 9th district after winning his 2012 race in a landslide with 63 percent of the vote.
