Any takers, ladies?

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) has had some weird and offensive fundraising emails before. But his new “friends with benefits” plea is probably his creepiest.
On Wednesday morning, the Florida Democrat sent out an email with the subject line “TODAY ONLY: Friends With Benefits.” Inside, it detailed how Grayson’s “sustainers” — people who donate small amounts to his re-election campaign on a monthly basis — will now be dubbed “friends with benefits.”
“Because steady small contributions are so important to our campaign – because you mean to [sic] much to us – we’re going to start looking for something that we can do for you,” the email proclaimed. “Starting today.”
The first “benefit” that Grayson’s supporters will receive is being allowed to ask the congressman a question. He will then select some of the questions to answer in a video response.
