ORLANDO (AP) – U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson’s wife has accused the Florida Democrat of pushing her during an argument over the weekend, but he claims the allegations are a lie.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that it was investigating a reported domestic violence incident between Grayson, D-Orlando, and his wife, Lolita, but no charges have been filed.
Grayson’s office released a statement denying his wife’s accusations. Grayson says he never touched his wife, even after she physically attacked him.
Grayson’s wife filed for divorce in January, and the central Florida Democrat claims he was attempting to visit his children when the incident occurred.
