WMAL/DC's Vegan Grandy: I'll Eat Burger If GOP Holds Onto Congress

ABC Talk WMAL-A/WASHINGTON morning co-host FRED GRANDY is a vegan, but he's putting that on the line by proclaiming that if the Republicans retain control over Congress, he'll eat a burger. GRANDY, the former Republican Congressman from IOWA and "LOVE BOAT" actor, told partner ANDY PARKS that he doesn't think Republicans will keep a majority in the House and made his offer to eat a burger, prompting PARKS and news anchor BRYAN NEHMAN to plan to bring prime beef with all the fixings and a GEORGE FOREMAN grill into the studio if GRANDY has to make good on his promise.
GRANDY jokes that if he has to eat the burger, "they can take me right to SUBURBAN HOSPITAL, where I'll be joined by my wife and her attorney."
