Sarah Palin helping Grayson raise money ...



Or so he hopes.

U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson has launched another "money bomb" and is using Sarah Palin as the bait.

"Last week, Sarah Palin came to Orlando to help defeat me. Palin gave a speech in which she said that the Republicans needed (to) 'take me out.' Like she was shooting a moose from a helicopter," Grayson writes in announcing the March 27 fundraising event.

"We've put together a campaign to beat back Sarah Palin. A campaign not funded by favor-seeking rich people and corporations, but by people like you. Last quarter, you helped me raise $500,000 dollars in one day, an average of $50 at a time. This blew away fundraising for every other House campaign, including people that took money from insurance companies, Wall Street, and defense contractors."
