Grayson’s Wife, Kids Now On Government Assistance

Barely a week after being named the 17th richest member of Congress, liberal firebrand and Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson is refusing to support his estranged wife and their kids, and his wife has turned to government food stamps to support her family, WFTV 9 Orlando reports.

Grayson’s marriage of 29 years dissolved earlier this year when his wife, Lolita Grayson, filed for divorce. A week later, Rep. Grayson asked a court to annul the marriage on the basis of bigamy.

Mr. Grayson is refusing to support his family because he is claiming that she was never divorced from her first husband and therefore their marriage was never legitimate.

Mrs. Grayson told WFTV 9 Orlando she never thought she would be on food stamps or have her kids on the school lunch, because her husband was “the sole provider,” she said. “I don’t have any money at all. He’s been holding all our money for years and years.”

The congressman’s lawyers dismiss the claim saying that she is abusing public funds, saying that he is still paying the mortgage and phone bills. They are calling it an Election Day ploy to hurt him in the polls.

Mark Nejame, one of his lawyers, claimed that Lolita is “abusing the public.”

“She’s going out and asking for support because she can’t support herself on $120,000? That’s outrageous,” Nejame said.

Despite these claims, Lolita Grayson maintains that the house is in disrepair with mold. “I’m doing this for me and our children, not for him, because I would like to have a good life again,” she concluded.
