Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., is standing by a controversial ad in which he labels his GOP opponent ‘Taliban Dan’ for his stances on women’s issues.
The ad includes a video clip of Republican House candidate Daniel Webster saying the phrase “Wives, submit yourself to your own husband ...She should submit to me, that’s in the Bible.” But in a longer version of the video, Webster actually appears to be making the argument that members of the Christian group he was addressing should seek more positive messages about spousal relationships in the Bible.
