Predatory Business Practices
Last year, Grayson confessed to being a victim of an investment fraud scheme that cost him $18 million dollars. This was the second time he had fallen to a fraud scheme, with the first coming in the form of a 2009 Ponzi scheme.
After the oil spill, Alan Grayson said that Michael Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, should be thrown in jail for supporting oil drilling. He also said that the US government should “track down every single person who said ‘Drill Baby Drill’ and put them all in prison.”
Earlier this year, Grayson was found profiting on shares of stock from a Russian Oil company and other foreign oil companies. This comes after several anti-oil public remarks.
