Outspoken Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., has been accused of shoving his estranged wife into a door and causing her to fall, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Grayson allegedly “showed up, unannounced” while his wife was getting ready to take two of the couple’s children to a play date. When she refused to speak with Grayson inside, he “then deliberately and with force pushed [her] very hard against the front door, causing [her] to fall to the ground as a result,” according to the wife’s petition for an injunction.

Grayson’s press secretary released a statement calling Lolita Grayson's story “absolutely false, completely unfounded and clearly designed to vilify and harm Congressman Grayson.”

In April 2012, while running to reclaim his congressional seat, Grayson accused Republicans of waging a “war on women,” which became a campaign theme.

“I will tell you, that the ‘war on women’ is being waged by one party in this country against all of the women in this country,” Grayson said. “And that party is the Republican Party. It’s time that somebody called them out.”

Speaking of calling out, let's not forget that in October 2009, Grayson called a female adviser to Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke a “K Street whore.”

What was that about Republicans waging a war on women?
