Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson of Florida sent a fundraising pitch equating the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan, which includes an image of a burning cross for the letter "T," according to USA TODAY.



The paper reports the fundraising e-mail plays off an interview Grayson did last week with Al Sharpton on MSNBC after the federal government reopened following a 16-day shutdown.

"The Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan," Grayson said in that interview — a transcript of which the Florida lawmaker posted on Twitter Monday night, along with link to a donation page.
