Florida Rep. Alan Grayson wants to ruin your Republican relatives’ Thanksgiving, but, like with all good Democrats – you’ll have to pay him first.
That’s right, Grayson is soliciting donations by using the ploy that he’ll badger a Republican family member of yours for the holiday.

A ‘fun’ little gimmick perhaps, but for a holiday focused mainly around copious amounts of food, it could be dangerous for unsuspecting right-wing Floridians. At least now you can say, you’ve been warned. Plenty of folks on Twitter weren’t finding the humor in it:
@AlanGrayson Are you an 11 yr old boy? Nothing better to do than make harassing phone calls?

@AlanGrayson so u think this is funny? The idea that u would insert urself in2 a family gathering is despicable & shows ur true character — Darin Keith (@Darink75) November 24, 2015
@AlanGrayson My CONSERVATIVE mother would flog you like a rented mule. You’re better off having another helping of yams.

MT @AlanGrayson: “Can you spare a $1? I will prank call your family for money. I’m desperate here, folks.”
