(JTA) -- A school in Florida that nearly won Kohl's national online contest has sued two Florida Jewish Day schools that did win, saying they reneged on their promise to help.

Grayson, freshman Jewish House member, loses

Rep. Alan Grayson was one of the new members of the Jewish delegation in the House – and he was one of the first defeated on this Bloody Tuesday for the Democrats.

Grayson, an outspoken liberal Democrat who sometimes suffered from foot-in-mouth disease, lost to Republican Daniel Webster in Florida's 8th district.

Grayson blamed low Democratic turnout, but his controversial statements – including a Holocaust allusion in the health care debate that got him in trouble with the ADL – were undoubtedly a big part of Tuesday's results.
