Released: Wednesday, September 24, 2008 BURLINGTON, VT, our nation's largest progressive political action community, has endorsed Alan Grayson's campaign to represent Floridas 8th Congressional District. "Alan Grayson doesnt back down, he takes on the tough fights and wins," said Jim Dean, Chair of DFA. "Democracy for America is proud to endorse his campaign because Alan Grayson will be a progressive champion for his constituents." Alan Grayson is a Harvard-educated attorney who has built a powerful reputation as a staunch opponent of government waste and fraud. As the founder and manager of his own law firm, Alan Grayson has conducted what the Wall Street Journal called a one-man war against contractor fraud in Iraq. Alan has been the plaintiffs attorney in every False Claims Act case being actively litigated concerning contractor fraud in Iraq. Through the years, Alan Grayson has shown time and again he has the tenacity and skills to get the job done. From a housing project in the Bronx to Harvard to working as a judges assistant in the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals to founding a Fortune 1000 company, IDT Corp., to running a successful law practice, Alan is a hard worker with a record of accomplishment that cannot be matched. I am honored to have the endorsement of Democracy for America because I share DFAs mission of citizen empowerment and grassroots organizing, said Alan Grayson. This puts us one step closer to winning the election and making real change in America. "Alan Grayson will deliver for his constituents on health care and returning good paying jobs to the District. His Republican opponent cant say the same thing because his opponent has no plan," said Arshad Hasan, Executive Director of DFA. "Alan Grayson knows the War in Iraq has been a drain on our resources and the reckless policies of George Bush and John McCain have unnecessarily tarnished the United States standing in the world. Alan will work to end this war and bring our brave men and women in uniform home." ###
