Good new for Congressman Alan Grayson.
The Orange County Sheriff’s office announced last night that it would not be seeking charges against the House Rep for the 9th District, because there was no probable cause that he visited his home last weekend to harm his estranged Wife, Lolita Grayson in a nasty domestic incident. Lolita Grayson was granted a protective injunction by a Judge Monday, after she said her Husband (whom she is in the middle of a divorce with) caused bruises by pushing her against the door. Grayson’s staff vehemently denied those allegations and published cellphone video, presented by his attorney earlier this week. You can watch that video HERE.
Here is how the announcement played in the Orlando media last night.

How did it play?: Well, it’s obviously good news for Congressman Grayson but it could have been prevented.
You don’t really win in a situation like this as much as you stop the bleeding. Listen, Grayson’s team may be declaring victory after law enforcement agreed with their side of the story but there never really is a winner in a situation like this. He’ll go back to being the way Alan Grayson is. Bold. Aggressive. And yes, occasionally reckless. We’ve learned and hopefully his administration has learned that a quiet Grayson is usually best for everyone involved.
