Shea-Porter Has Praised Grayson's "Moral Compass" And Said She Shares His "Values" 

 

Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today called on Representative Carol Shea-Porter to denounce Representative Alan Grayson (D-FL) for comparing the tea party to the Klu Klux Klan in an email to supporters (CNN, 10/22/13.)

 

Representatives Shea-Porter and Grayson are close colleagues in the House of Representatives. At the 2009 liberal Netroots National Conference, Shea-Porter praised Grayson, saying that he is "driven by a moral compass that is wonderful to behold," and that they share "almost all of the same kinds of goals and values."

"Congressman Alan Grayson's decision to compare fiscally responsible Americans to the Klu Klux Klan is despicable and disgusting. It is outrageous that Congresswoman Carol Shea Porter has embraced Grayson's extreme agenda, praised his 'moral compass' and said that she shares his radical goals and values," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Given Congresswoman Shea-Porter's close association with Congressman Grayson, she needs to immediately reject his disgraceful behavior and repudiate his hateful political attacks."
