Rep. Michael Grimm, facing federal charges, surrenders to FBI

The only Republican who represents any part of New York City is not serving as a good role model, is he? (snark remark)

The Washington Post

Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R-N.Y.) surrendered Monday morning to federal authorities in New York as he faces multiple charges connected to a restaurant business he operated before entering Congress in 2011, according to sources familiar with the long-running probe into the lawmaker’s finances.

Grimm spent much of the weekend hunkered down, bracing for the unveiling of the federal charges, which were due to be disclosed after his surrender. He turned himself in to the FBI at an undisclosed location Monday morning and was taken to Lower Manhattan for processing. The charges stem from his ownership of a Manhattan health-food restaurant that has ties to an Israeli fundraiser who served as a liaison between Grimm and a mystic, celebrity rabbi whose…

  1. is the same asshat who threatened to throw the reporter over the rail?? I can already see the ‘spin’ on the timing, how it’s a dirty trick by Obama to do this so close to the elections instead of putting any responsibility on Grimm himself.

      HA! I admit to not being in the know and keeping up with politics. So, your comment led me to do a Google search. You are correct. It’s the same man who threatened a reporter in NY.

      The President gets blamed for everything.

      I’m paying $23.00 a month for health and dental insurance. Damn that Obama. 🙂

    Judge Removed From Renisha McBride Murder Trial

    The trial of a Detroit homeowner accused of fatally shooting teenager Renisha McBride on his front porch isn’t set to begin until June, but there’s already been upheaval.

    A Wayne County Circuit Judge recused Judge Qiana Lillard from Theodore Wafer’s trial Friday, citing the involvement of a prosecutor handling McBride’s case in Lillard’s election campaign. The prosecutor was listed as part of Lillard’s campaign committee and sold tickets to a fundraiser on her behalf, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

    “The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office will not appeal the ruling,” spokewoman Maria Miller said in a statement. The case has been drawn to Judge Dana Hathaway and there will be a calendar conference Wednesday.

    Lillard refused to voluntarily step down earlier this month at the request of defense attorneys, saying “this court holds no bias in any side of this case,” according to CBS Detroit.

      IMHO, it was right to recuse that judge. They are not suppose to even give the appearance of bias.

      Here, there’s a rule (I think 5 years) for judges to recuse themselves if they represented the parties before them while in private practice. But, we also have this cool rule that each litigant gets to recuse one judge without cause as a matter of right.

          I’m sorry. I wasn’t disagreeing with you. Maybe it’s just that aquarian pouring out of water that comes across the wrong way at times.
