Of Course… Dem Rep Grayson Stands By His "Whore" Comment …Update: Apology

This democrat’s no cut-and-runner…
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) stands by his attack on Linda Robertson, an adviser to Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, calling her a “K Street whore.”

Grayson won’t step down.
CBS News reported:

Grayson has been widely criticized for his comment, as Politico and the Associated Press report. Republican Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers said Grayson is “out of control,” while Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner asked, “Is this news to you that this guy’s one fry short of a Happy Meal?”

“Alan Grayson’s latest comments are disgraceful, inappropriate and disrespectful to women,” RNC Co-Chairman Jan Larimer said, calling on Grayson to issue an apology.

That seems unlikely to happen. Todd Jurkowski, Grayson’s spokesman, sent an email to Hotsheet standing by the comment and further criticizing Robertson.

“Let’s be clear about the context,” he said. “The attack was on her professional career, not her personal life.”

“She attacked the Congressman and his efforts to promote a Republican bill to audit the Federal Reserve,” Jurkowski said. “She actually questioned his understanding of the difference between fiscal and monetary policy. She had the audacity to attack a Congressman who used to be an economist. She’s a career lobbyist who used to work for Enron and advocates for whatever she gets paid to promote.”

President Obama told supporters last night that Grayson is outstanding.

UPDATE: The knuckle-dragging Neanderthal apologized.
