Alan Grayson losing his communications director
The communications director for U.S.. Rep. Alan Grayson, all around pro Ken Scudder, is leaving the Orlando Congressman's office to work art the U.S.. Congress Joint Economic Committee, which researches a wide range of economic issues.
"It's a fantastic opportunity," said Scudder, who joined Grayson's staff less than a year ago and has spent a good deal of his time dealing with questions, controversies and and ethics investigations concerning Grayson's management of a hedge fund. Scudder said his departure had nothing to do with the notoriously volatile Grayson, who is running for the Democratic U.S.. Senate nomination against U.S.. Rep. Patrick Murphy.
The senior staff of Grayson's U.S.. Senate campaign quit late last year.
