Breast implant leak delays Rep. Alan Grayson’s wife’s bigamy trial

ORLANDO, Fla. — 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.

Court papers filed this week say 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.

The surgery was Monday.

Lolita Grayson sued her husband for divorce last year after 24 years of marriage.

But the Democratic congressman from Florida’s 9th District says the marriage was invalid because she was never divorced from her first husband.

Lolita Grayson says she was divorced.
