Congressman Alan Grayson’s wife filed for divorce in January, and now allegations of domestic violence are flying back and forth.

According to a complaint filed by Lolita Grayson, she and the congressman had an argument when he came to her house on Saturday night.

She asserts that Grayson “deliberately and with force pushed [Lolita Grayson] very hard against the front door, causing [her] to fall to the ground as a result,” according to a copy of a complaint obtained by the Orlando Sentinel.

Lolita Grayson also claims the congressman “has battered [her] and the parties’ minor children” in the past, although she has not previously reported such actions…

According to Grayson’s office, Lolita Grayson was the one who initiated the physical dispute.

“Sadly, it was Ms. Grayson who physically attacked the Congressman as he attempted to visit with his children. He did not respond to Ms. Grayson’s violent assault,” the statement said.

Congressman Grayson has released a video to buttress his claim that he is the victim of domestic violence.
