Wife of Alan Grayson Named 17th Richest Member of Congress Receiving Food-Stamps
Not that the timing makes it any more egregious, but six days after being named the 17th richest member of Congress, it’s being reported that U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson‘s estranged wife has been issued an EBT card to help feed his children.
Lolita Grayson was approved for public assistance by the state of Florida, and their four minor children — they have five children altogether — are also enrolled in the free lunch program in Orange County schools, according to ABC affiliate WFTV.
The stay-at-home mom was asked if she ever thought she’d be on food stamps.
“No,” Lolita responded. “Never, because my husband, he’s been the sole provider for me for the last 29 years.”
In filing for public assistance, Lolita said her monthly income consisted of $592 per child.
