October

Graysonletter U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, the man of the hour, says he regrets comparing deaths of uninsured Americans to a holocaust. In a letter today to the Florida Anti-Defamation League, he writes:

"I am Jewish and have relatives who died in the Holocaust. In no way did I mean to minimize the Holocaust. I regret the choice of words, and I will not repeat it. I am a staunch supporter of Israel and on numerous occasions, I have said that Iran must be restrained to avoid another Holocaust. I personally support the Anti-Defamation League and its work."
