Yesterday it was reported that Florida progressive Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson, who is running for Senate, has had a second job in addition to being a member of Congress: Running a hedge fund that was based in the Cayman Islands.
Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid is not coming to Grayson’s defense:

Reid, after NYT report on Grayson + hedge funds: "His actions aren't just disgraceful to the Dem Party, they disgrace the halls of Congress"

From the Associated Press:
Reid said in a statement that Grayson claims to be progressive but seems to have “no moral compass.” He said Grayson used his office to unethically promote a hedge fund that until recently had been based in the Cayman Islands.
Well that’s something:

If Grayson drops his Senate bid maybe it would free up some time in case he’s needed elsewhere:
But Bernie ppl are calling for Grayson as his VP pick, https://t.co/Aeev3ClU0x
