WASHINGTON (CNN) - Rep. Alan Grayson - whose statement that Republican health care calls for the sick to "die quickly" - has launched a new Web site, namesofthedead.com, that invites users to submit stories of loved ones who have died because they lack health insurance.
"I have created this project in their memory," reads a message on the new site. "I hope that honoring them will help us end this senseless loss of American lives."
In the midst of the national health care debate, the freshman Florida Democrat rose to national prominence recently when he declared from the House floor that the Republican health care reform proposal is "Don't get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly."
The National Republican Congressional Committee slammed Grayson Wednesday over the new site.
"What is wrong with this man?" NRCC spokesman Andy Sere said in a statement e-mailed to CNN. "Alan Grayson's morbid exploitation of 'the dead' for personal political gain may be the most shameless stunt he's pulled yet."
Sere also told CNN that the NRCC believes the new Grayson site violates House ethics rule.
According to the House Ethics Manual, Members' official House Web sites may not include any personal or political information and also may not be directly linked to or refer to Web sites created or operated by a campaign or any campaign-related entity. House rules also prohibit Members' campaign Web sites from including a link to Members' official House Web sites and prohibit official House Web sites from being advertised on campaign Web sites or other campaign-related material. Grayson's new site contains links to both Grayon's official House site and his re-election campaign's site.
