The divorce proceedings of U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Florida) got an unwelcome interruption this week when Lolita Grayson, soon-to-be ex wife of the congressman, wasn't prepared for court because of a medical emergency stemming from leaking breast implants.

Rep. Grayson is currently seeking an annulment from his wife after 24 years of marriage, claiming that she was married to another man at the time of their nuptials and "no legal marriage exists" between them.

The AP reports:

A trial to determine whether U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson's wife committed bigamy when she wed the congressman has been delayed because she required emergency surgery to remove breast implants.

The trial had been scheduled for Thursday in Orlando but is now set for March.

Lolita Grayson had been suffering chest pains. When she went to a hospital to get checked out, she was told she needed emergency surgery to remove the leaking implants and scar tissue, according to court papers filed this week.

Lolita Grayson, who sued her husband for divorce last year, claims that she was not married when she wed the congressman.

You know, throw in a dead older Grayson brother and replace the breast implants with Catholicism and and this is basically Florida's version of Henry VIII dumping Catherine of Aragon. (Then again, Henry VIII successfully reformed England's education system and Grayson, well...Florida is still Florida.)
