Harry Reid to Alan Grayson: 'I want you to lose. It's true'

@PatriciaMazzei

Politico has a barn-burner of a story about a behind-closed-doors spat between U.S. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson of Orlando. Reid backs Grayson's rival, U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy of Jupiter. Grayson confronted Reid about it, throwing in a little Destiny's Child while he was at it:

Rep. Alan Grayson angrily confronted Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday, disrupting a meeting of the Congressional Progressive Caucus in front of dozens of staffers and members of Congress.

Grayson (D-Fla.), who Reid vehemently opposes in his bid for the open Florida Senate seat, arrived at the meeting with Reid's February statement in hand, according to two sources in the room. In that statement, Reid said Grayson has "no moral compass" and "used his status as a congressman to unethically promote his Cayman Islands hedge funds."

As each member took a turn to speak to Reid, it was Grayson's turn. He asked Reid if the Nevada senator knows who he is. After Reid answered in the affirmative, Grayson went on the attack.

“Say my name, senator. Say my name," Grayson told Reid as Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) tried to shut the confrontation down. Ellison chided Grayson, asking him what he was doing and why he was distracting from the meeting's goals.

(Happy Wednesday.)
