Republican Crime Blotter - Elected, Convicted Felon Edition
Republican Rep. Michael "Dim" Grimm (Felon-NY) pled guilty to one felony count of tax fraud today. Sentencing is expected in June; Grimm could face up to 3 years in prison. Grimm was indicted in April on 20 counts related to hiding more than $1 million in sales and employee wages at a restaurant he co-owned in Manhattan. Last November, his low-life Staten Island constituents decided to re-elect him because he had that "R" next to his name on the ballot, regardless of the 20-count indictment hanging over his felonious head.
Grimm, a rageaholic, has said he will continue to serve in Congress, but pressure is already building on Weeper of the House John "Mr. Tangerine Man" Boehner to force Grimm to resign.
