WATCH: Grayson: Reid ‘lied about me’

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) is accusing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) of lying in a statement that urged Grayson to drop out of the Florida Senate race.

{mosads}In the statement, Reid accused Grayson of using his position as a congressman to “unethically promote his Cayman Islands hedge funds, and he should drop out of the Senate race immediately.”

“It’s pathetic that somebody would make a statement like that based upon a false accusation,” Grayson told The Hill’s Molly K. Hooper. “My goodness, it’s in Ten Commandments — thou shall not bear false witness. And that’s exactly what he’s done; he lied about me.”

The House Ethics Committee is considering whether to open an investigation into Grayson and has said it will make a decision by April 5. The Florida Senate primary — in which Grayson is seeking to upset the establishment choice, Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.) — will be held on March 15.
