How did Alan Grayson's Wife Get Approved For Public Assistance?

ORLANDO, Fla. — Alan Grayson is one of richest congressman in the country, but just one week before Election Day, 9 Investigates has learned his estranged wife is now using tax dollars to support her children.

In front of his home, Channel 9's Karla Ray saw a septic leak. Inside the home, she saw mold in nearly every room.

"I don't have any money at all," said Grayson's wife, Lolita Grayson. "He's been holding all our money for years and years."

Grayson's wife said she applied for and received an EBT card from the state.

Her attorney showed Channel 9 paperwork from the Orange County School District, which shows the congressman's four kids are on free lunch.

"Did you ever think you'd be on food stamps?" asked WFTV's Karla Ray.

"No. Never, because my husband, he's been the sole provider for me for the last 29 years," said Lolita Grayson.

But Alan Grayons' attorney, Mark NeJame, said it's no surprise the information is coming out now, one week before Election Day, arguing Lolita Grayson's assistance application is incomplete.

On the paperwork, she only claims $592 per child for her monthly income, but NeJame says Grayson is also paying the mortgage, utilities and phone bill for the home, a total of about $10,000 a month.

"This is abusing the public," NeJame said. "She's going out and asking for support because she can't support herself on $120,000? That's outrageous."

Rep. Grayson does not pay spousal support because his marriage is under the scope of a bigamy claim. His attorneys are claiming the marriage was never valid because Lolita Grayson was never divorced from her last husband.

"We hope the public sees it for what it is," said NeJame. "She was deemed to be an untruthful person who has been vindictive from the first go-around."

"I'm doing this for me and our children, not for him, because I would like to have a good life again," said Lolita Grayson.
