Wife of Alan Grayson, named 17th richest member of Congress, receiving food stamps to feed his kids

Not that the timing makes it any more egregious, but six days after being named the 17th richest member of Congress, it’s being reported that U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson‘s estranged wife has been issued an EBT card to help feed his children.

Lolita Grayson was approved for public assistance by the state of Florida, and their four minor children — they have five children altogether — are also enrolled in the free lunch program in Orange County schools, according to ABC affiliate WFTV.

The stay-at-home mom was asked if she ever thought she’d be on food stamps.

“No,” Lolita responded. “Never, because my husband, he’s been the sole provider for me for the last 29 years.”

In filing for public assistance,  Lolita said her monthly income consisted of $592 per child.

Grayons’ attorney attributed her actions to politics the week before an election, telling WFTV his client pays about $10,000 a month for the mortgage, utilities and phone bill for the home.

“This is abusing the public,” attorney Mark Nejame said. “She’s going out and asking for support because she can’t support herself on $120,000? That’s outrageous.”

Married to the bombastic congressman for 24 years, she filed for divorce early this year and it didn’t take long for things to get messy. There was a physical altercation at their home a short time later — she accused Grayson of battering her and he countered by saying she hit him. He would later charge his wife with bigamy while filing for an annulment of their 24-year marriage.

The Democratic lawmaker, a former trial lawyer, is not paying spousal support because he says the marriage was never valid because of the bigamy charge, WFTV reported.

The same week Roll Call reported that Grayson enjoyed a $10 million dollar surge in his net worth, Lolita claimed he would not pay for needed repairs at the 5,300-square-foot Orlando house where she is living with the children, according to WFTV.

According to a court filing, the roof leaks and there are broken windows, resulting in a serious mold problem.

“The wife has been a stay-at-home wife and mother and is financially dependent on her husband,” the filing said. “The wife has no financial resources to contribute to the repairs and maintenance of the marital residence.”

Grayson’s attorneys responded by attributing the problem to her being “a poor housekeeper,” but a WFTV reporter saw a septic leak in front of the home and mold in nearly every room.

    Sounds like he and his wife were made for each other.

  2. waybackwhen says:

    “Mr” Grayson, and I would rather call him other things, should have his wages attached and sent to his wife!!!!
    That is how the system works for us peons!! No doubt being an attorney he thinks he is above the law but Grayson, YOU ARE NOT ABOVE THE LAW!’
    I will say I think Grayson is a really big piece of you know what!!

    If the rest of the Democrat Senators were real about Women’s Issues, they would’ve encourage Graysonofadog to give the example with this “Single Mom” of his own creation. The children are not responsible but rather are victims of these 2 and are likely to become criminals or other statistic.

    Thank God for the aid, seeing she’s married to an arse. Just kidding but like Grayson he’s most likely trying to squeeze her and the best thing is he campaigns on the war on women pointing at the GOP. He’s a joke!

    1st and foremost the children (Unfortutnately) should not be punished and have the comfortt of life they have enjoyed soley because mommy and daddy don’t get along. Next the article states he pays $10k a month, problem is this money goes towards the mortgage, utilities, Phone bills, etc. This is so that his credit doesn’t suffer. So finally in the end the fact that this woman gets $592 per child per month is proof positive that the welfare system is fatally flawed. Since this is income to support the children it should be counted. What we have here is 2 democrats using the system they have devised to ripoff the tax payers. One final not he filed his bigamy charge AFTER she filed for divorce….. Both of these people are slime balls and we the public are paying for it.

    This weirdo can’t manage his personal affairs, yet he thinks he’s qualified to meddle in ours?

  8. Robert Crim says:

    While the lawyers and adults fight this out who suffers the most? The kids.

  9. Arden Hale says:

    That’s awful. It justifies a campaign of mass starvation. First we should deprive people of food who oppose the food stamp program. They can set the example.

    I can’t figure how this guy gets so many brain dead people to vote for him.
