Before this weekend, MARTA engineer Derrick Grayson may have been most known in Georgia for using Sen. Johnny Isakson’s illness as a fundraising tool.
After it, he’s irrevocably linked to what may be the most bizarre event at a political convention so far this year (although 2016 is still young).
Grayson was the longshot political contender who finished a distant second to Isakson in last week’s Georgia primary. Spurned by the GOP faithful, the self-styled “Minister of Truth” headed to Orlando this weekend to run for the Libertarian’s Vice President slot.
The day went even worse for one of his supporters. James Weeks, a Michigan Libertarian, rose to vouch for Grayson. Then he used his two-minute speech to do something inexplicable.
It cannot be unseen.
