Categories: Michael Grimm
The FBI is investigating Micheal Grimm on allegations that he solicited improper campaign contributions from Rabbi Ofer Biton. Allegations persist that Grimm accepted a $500,000 cash contribution in close proximity to the FBI building in New York. Three witnesses confirmed to the New York Times that Grimm and Biton gave them personal assurances that they would accept campaign contributions above the legal limit. Paul Duffy, a Staten Island voter, filed a complaint against Grimm with the Federal Election Commission. Grimm was arrested on 4/28/2014 on 20 counts that includes fraud and perjury.

Michael Grimm, get ready to join the rank-in-file of people now doing time for their crime, whatever that may be. No more no less! Nobody should be treated differently in this democratic-legal system. Law-makers of this country should not be held above other citizens.
