Florida Rep. and U.S. Senate candidate Alan Grayson has talked a big game in the past about taking on Wall Street “greed” and political conflicts of interest:

According to a New York Times report, Grayson’s anti-greed rantings may have been a bit of projection:
The hedge fund manager boasted that he had traveled to “every country” in the world, studying overseas stock markets as he fine-tuned an investment strategy to capitalize on global companies’ suffering because of economic or political turmoil.
But the fund manager had an even more distinctive credential to showcase in his marketing material in June 2013: He was a “U.S. congressman,” Representative Alan Grayson, Democrat of Florida, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. Now he is also among the leading Democratic candidates for one of Florida’s United States Senate seats.
