What a prick. Classy is clearly not in this guy's dictionary.
Florida Rep. Alan Grayson called an aide to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke a "K Street whore" during a radio interview that aired last month, Roll Call reported.
According to the audio posted on YouTube, Grayson, a Democrat, reportedly said on the Alex Jones radio show, "Here I am, the only member of Congress who actually worked as an economist. And she’s, this lobbyist, this K Street whore, is trying to teach me about economics."
Grayson, a first term congressman, was allegedly referring to Bernanke adviser Linda Robertson, who Grayson said had headed up Enron Corp.'s lobbying shop in Washington, D.C., the newspaper reported.
A Democratic aide of Grayson's later defended his statement, telling the newspaper, "The Congressman’s choice of the words referred to her career as a lobbyist and her history of promoting whomever and whatever pays."
