Life and love for Rep. Alan Grayson probably isn’t turning out the way he’d hoped.
The Florida Democrat, who was accused by his ex-wife of assault, filed court documents last week asking that their 24-year marriage be annulled.
Grayson claimed in a countersuit that Lolita Grayson hoodwinked him into getting married even though she was secretly married to another man at the time.
The documents, filed in 9th Circuit Court in Orange County, Fla., refer to the couple’s union as “a bigamous marriage.”
“Unbeknownst to Mr. Grayson, Ms. Grayson was married and remained married to another man …up to and after the parties conducted an apparent marriage ceremony on April 28, 1990,” according to the filing.
Grayson claimed his ex-wife “secretly participated” in a divorce from her first husband, Robert Carson, four years after she married the Florida congressman.
The new court filing also accused Lolita Grayson of defamation, libel, slander and abuse of process stemming from a March 1 confrontation at the house the Graysons shared.
During that incident, Lolita Grayson claimed her husband pushed her “very hard” against the front door, according to a police report. It also stated that in order to protect herself, she pushed him back and kneed him in the stomach before calling authorities.
Soon after, Alan Grayson released a cellphone video of the altercation that he claimed shows it was his wife who escalated the fight.
In the new filing, Alan Grayson argued that he should be awarded custody of their five children and that his wife be ordered to pay him back for “all of the money and property she has received” during their “purported” marriage.
Among other things, he is also asking the court for $15,000 in damages as well as exclusive use of the family’s home and their 1981 DeLorean.
Lolita didn't know what she was bargaining for when she married an attorney.

I believe that woman had an estranged husband. Medicaid used their combined incomes to determine eligibility. There's probably more to the story, as sad as it is.
One is required to keep a separated wife on his plan here, if he had one.
You're making assumptions without anything to back them up. Here's the issue; if Rick Scott and his Republican minions had allowed Medicaid expansion then this woman could have gotten the medications she needed to stay alive.

You're pulling stuff directly from your anal orifice again Carol. There is no evidence that a universal single payer system provides substandard care.
The French health care system is one of universal health care largely financed by government national health insurance. In its 2000 assessment of world health care systems, the World Health Organization found that France provided the "close to best overall health care" in the world.
Health care in Canada is delivered through a publicly funded health care system, which is mostly free at the point of use and has most services provided by private entities. It is guided by the provisions of the Canada Health Act of 1984. The government assures the quality of care through federal standards. The government does not participate in day-to-day care or collect any information about an individual's health, which remains confidential between a person and his or her physician. Canada's provincially based Medicare systems are cost-effective partly because of their administrative simplicity. In each province each doctor handles the insurance claim against the provincial insurer. There is no need for the person who accesses health care to be involved in billing and reclaim.
In both these cases and in other countries with similar systems there's a higher life expectancy and lower infant mortality than in the US. and contrary to the lies right wingers like you keep putting out, those who need life saving treatment are not put on waiting lists nor is there any rationing of care. In this country we spend far more money on healthcare and get less for it than in any other major industrialized nation.
Perfect!
I might add this: Canadian people are not worrying that they are paying for poor peoples healthcare. That mindset does not exist. It is not a payroll tax.

Charlie Crist polls 10% above Scott. He will expand Medicaid, it is inevitable. You can't leave a million people without insurance.

More Than 8 Million Have Signed Up For Obamacare,
""Just over 8 million individuals signed up for health insurance via the Obamacare exchanges through April 19, according to an official report from the Department of Health and Human Services that confirms an announcement made by President Barack Obama last month.
During the six-plus months of the first open enrollment period for these marketplaces created by the Affordable Care Act, 8.02 million people chose a health plan. Sign-ups surged during March and April, when 3.8 million signed up for private coverage through the exchanges, according to the department's report. That total represents 47 percent of all enrollments.""

1. Waxman isn't playing dumb when he talks to his puppets, this psycho has multiple personalities. Topix Sybil.
2. Waxman has been in a perpetual meltdown mode for quite awhile. I'm surprised his fat little fingers haven't cramped up from cutting, pasting and judge-it manipulation.

I stand corrected, thanks. He most definitely has symptoms of severe paranoia coupled with obvious insecurities. and a sad case of loneliness. Perhaps if he could find a woman as desperate as he is that would help. I suggest he contact DB and maybe get a Russian bride, but then again I'm sure he is down to his last Ruble, and that Yugo is not gonna get it. So I guess in all reality he is stuck with his limited imagination that hasn't been privy to an erection since Ronald Reagan.

File this under Liberal Hollywood Hypocrites

"Gosnell, the Movie Hollywood WON'T Make

Hannibal Lecter. Freddy Kreuger. Jason Voorhees. Charles Manson. Jeffrey Dahmer. Ted Bundy. Hollywood loves a homicidal monster. But what happens when an evil being exposes the monstrosities of malign government neglect and deadly ideology? Crickets.

Tinseltown couldn't conjure a bigger nightmare than true-life Philadelphia serial killer Kermit Gosnell. He preyed on hundreds of poor minority women. He systematically executed hundreds of healthy, living, breathing, squirming, viable babies by stabbing them in their necks and severing spinal cords with scissors and knives. This twisted murderer kept baby feet in specimen jars, which he crammed into the grisly refrigerators of his filthy "clinic." For "research."

A year ago this month, the monster Gosnell was convicted of murdering three babies born alive in his death factory. He also was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the death of one of his "patients," 41-year-old Bhutanese refugee Karnamaya Mongar, who died of a barbarically administered drug overdose at Gosnell's "Women's Medical Society."

Let me remind you that for 15 bloody years, public officials stood by and did nothing.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health knew of clinic violations dating back decades, but did nothing.

The Pennsylvania Department of State was "repeatedly confronted with evidence about Gosnell," investigators found -- including the clinic's unclean, unsterile conditions, unlicensed workers, unsupervised sedation, underage abortion patients and over-prescribing of pain pills with high resale value on the street -- "and repeatedly chose to do nothing."

The Philadelphia Department of Public Health officials who regularly visited Gosnell's human waste-clogged offices did nothing.

Nearby hospital officials, who treated some of the pregnant mothers who suffered grave complications from Gosnell's butchery, did nothing.

"Women's health" advocates at the National Abortion Federation, the leading association of abortion providers that is supposed to uphold strict health and legal standards, determined that Gosnell's chamber of horrors was "the worst abortion clinic she had ever inspected." But they did nothing.

Hollywood bigwigs have not lifted a finger or raised a voice for the innocent victims of these criminal enterprises, but 2 independent filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney and their crew are producing a made-for-TV movie on Gosnell, whom they rightly dub "America's Most Prolific Serial Killer." These trailblazers have circumvented the information and entertainment gatekeepers before with their crowd-funded smash hit, "FrackNation." They're poised to upend the mainstream entertainment culture again.

Why make a made-for-TV movie about Gosnell?

Because the Philadelphia Horror is a chilling tale of how MASS MURDER, MASQUERADING AS 'CHOICE," got a pass -- and all Americans need to know about it.

Because there are vital lessons here for every daughter, mother and grandmother about the dangers of apathetic bureaucrats and the duplicity of "reproductive services" providers.

Because Gosnell may be behind bars now, but he is not alone.

California's Dr. Andrew Rutland, Maryland's Dr. Steven Brigham and Texas' Dr. Douglas Karpen are just three of the Dr. Deaths who reportedly endangered women or killed babies born alive. Like Gosnell, Rutland killed an Asian woman after administering a drug overdose during a late-term abortion procedure. Like Gosnell, Brigham stored the bodies of late-term fetuses in freezers. Medical boards and health departments downplayed or whitewashed their murderous malpractice just like they did in Pennsylvania."

Michelle Malkin

Just like with Obama, the mainstream media adjusts coverage according to who and what supports its liberal agenda.

Any homeless person can walk into any ER and be treated.

The majority of the homeless reside in the bigger cities. There's at least a half dozen free clinics right here in Orlando.
If the democrats had concentrated more on lowering the costs of health care and compromised with republicans on solutions that were better than what we have now - which is a lawyer's smorgasbord and a tax nightmare - it would have been a lot cheaper just to treat the poor in ERs and free clinics at the taxpayer's expense. We were doing that anyway.
Obamacare is just making more people homeless.
You said it was 25 to 30 miles to a Medical center in Florida

Let us know when you walk 25 or thirty miles.

FOX is SO far from leading the MSM media around by the nose. pretty much the opposite after helping the GOP lose 2 elections in a row.
