After allegations, later recanted, of domestic abuse concerning Alan Grayson, Joe the Plumber called him “a piece of nose slime.”

Joe the Plumber called Grayson a “piece of nose slime” weeks ago, but Grayson brought it up in a fundraising e-mail this week, decrying it as yet another attack on his character. The e-mail goes out of its way to discredit Joe the Plumber rather thoroughly, calling him a “right-wing faker” and a “dim, dopey, dense, doltish and deficient star.”

What does this have to do with fundraising, you ask? Well…

And that’s really the heart of the matter. Not that “Joe” the “Plumber” calls me a “piece of nose slime” and a “dreg of society,” but that upwards of one million Tea Party stooges hear those words, and are poised to try to defeat me in November. Which is why I need your help, to fight back.

And the picture here is the one Grayson used in his mailing. And here is another good reason for campaign finance reform.
