UPDATE: There is a reason I never became a lawyer. There is no such status as bastard in American law. If Grayson's story is true there is a possibility he will be granted an annulment due to deception rather than divorce. The children will not be hurt, only the mother of his children who will get nothing in the "De-coupleing.
Just to prove what a creep he really is Rep Alan Grayson is claiming his soon to be ex-wife was a bigamist and is moving to answer her divorce petition with a request that the judge annul his 24-year-long marriage.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Grayson is claiming when he married his wife Lola she was already married to another man which if true couldn't have bothered her very much as he stayed with her for the next 24 years..
Alan Grayson's new filing, a counter-petition to her January divorce filing, states that when he met Lolita Grayson in 1985, she "represented herself as single in order to induce Mr. Grayson to marry her."
The paperwork refers to the couple's union as a "bigamous marriage." Lolita Grayson filed a false application for their marriage license, it says, asserting that she had been divorced since 1981.
"Unbeknownst to Mr. Grayson," the filing adds, "Ms. Grayson was married and remained married to another man... up to and after the parties conducted an apparent marriage ceremony on April 28, 1990."
Several years after marrying Alan Grayson, Lolita Grayson "secretly participated" in a divorce from her prior husband, a man named Robert Carson, in Broward County, the documents state.
Attached to the congressman's counter-petition was a document dated March 7, 1994, purported to be a final divorce judgment. It lists Lolita Carson as the respondent, and Robert Carson as the petitioner.
Alan Grayson's counter-petition argues that his marriage to Lolita Grayson led to her "unjust enrichment," and that he has suffered "humiliation, emotional distress and financial damages."Humiliation? Nobody has humiliated Rep. Grayson more than....Rep. Grayson, also known as the village idiot of the House.
Sometimes marriages don't work, it happens. But to deny that a marriage of 24 years was never real, just to get back at the mother of his children is sick, and shows Alan Grayson to be the creep we always thought him to be.
