Rep. Grimm Surrenders to Feds


grimm1New York Congressman Michael Grimm surrendered to federal authorities today after he was indicted for campaign-finance violations. The Staten Island Republican, who famously threatened to throw a reporter off the Capitol’s balcony and “break him in half, like a boy,” faces charges of fraud, perjury, and obstruction of justice.

Grimm’s office released a defiant statement that “We are disappointed by the government’s decision, but hardly surprised.
