My Congressman IS Nuts

Alan Grayson, Harvard graduate, who represents Florida's 8th district (and me) in the US House of Representatives, now wants to deprive Angie Langley of not only her 1st amendment right to freedom of speech but her personal freedom as well ... because she dared to create a website critical of him.

No kidding.

I have a BS degree from a mere state university, not from a high-falutin' Ivy League Institution of Higher Liberalism, but I DO understand what the 1st Amendment to the Constitution is all about. 
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Mr. Grayson swore to "support and defend" the US Constitution.
Apparently he thinks he can pick and choose which parts.
