Grayson's email to supporters featured an image of a burning cross as the "T" in "Tea Party," and argued that the group is "no more popular than the Klan." The congressman later stood by the email, saying "if the shoe fits, wear it." 

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Politico Wednesday in a statement that she was also "disappointed" in Grayson's use of the imagery.
