Florida Democrat Rep. Alan Grayson is soliciting campaign donations as all politicians do, except Grayson is offering this “prize” to sweeten the deal:

You can win a free trip to Orlando to meet Nancy Pelosi and me. Contribute: https://t.co/uIzVrkBaG1 pic.twitter.com/8l2KXGFhhO

Is that remotely enticing?

@AlanGrayson I’d rather have a bowel resection.

We’ll take that as a “no.”

@AlanGrayson now that is a sandwich I don't want to be in the middle of

@AlanGrayson what an awful contest. What's next? A trip to Sierra Leone?

@AlanGrayson You realize this isn't helping your cause right? Fire the intern that came up with this idiotic idea.

Sure, some on the Right might be mocking this, but how do those who lean Grayson’s way politically feel?
