Alan Grayson of Florida stood by this comment about Linda Robertson:
Here was the response from his office and their rationalization, emphasis mine:
That seems unlikely to happen. Todd Jurkowski, Grayson’s spokesman, sent an email to Hotsheet standing by the comment and further criticizing Robertson.
“Let’s be clear about the context,” he said. “The attack was on her professional career, not her personal life.”
“She attacked the Congressman and his efforts to promote a Republican bill to audit the Federal Reserve,” Jurkowski said. “She actually questioned his understanding of the difference between fiscal and monetary policy. She had the audacity to attack a Congressman who used to be an economist. She’s a career lobbyist who used to work for Enron and advocates for whatever she gets paid to promote.”
So, by that logic, how is Sandra Fluke any different?
He finally did apologize after Anthony Weiner, which in hindsight is rather ironic, said, ”Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?“
