Michael Grimm To Resign From Congress: Reports

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/29/michael-grimm-resigning_n_6393206.html

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) will announce this week that he is resigning from Congress, the New York Daily News reported Monday.

According to the report, the Staten Island congressman is planning to resign on Tuesday or Wednesday. A Grimm spokesperson did not immediately respond to The Huffington Post's request for comment on the matter.

Politico and BuzzFeed confirmed the Daily News report.

The report comes less than a week after Grimm pleaded guilty to one count of felony tax fraud. (The congressman was indicted on 20 counts in April.) His plea carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

4. OK, much as it hurts, we gotta give Boner some credit for this...

just hope he keeps it up on the less obvious cases.

Grimm (R-S.I.) said after he entered his plea last week that he planned to continue serving in the House.

But he reversed course after speaking Monday to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who has taken a hard line on GOPers facing ethics charges.

6. That's one reason we don't give him a lot credit, but...

it is possible he nudged her out. Publicly getting down on a Presidential candidate, even one as wacky as her, can have blowback.

In her case, Beki was thrown out of court, and she seems to have a lot more friends than than Grimm does, so dumping on Grimm is a win for him.
