    Rep. Michael Grimm to plead guilty to felony count of tax evasion, sources say

    Rep. Michael Grimm will plead guilty on Tuesday to a felony charge of cheating on his taxes at a Manhattan restuarant he co-owned before entering Congress, the Daily News has learned.

    The Staten Island Republican will enter the plea in Brooklyn federal court. A 1 p.m. hearing in the case has been scheduled, a court official said.
    And the people of Staten Island knew when they elected him that he was facing a 20 count indictment for being a crook. But who says a crook can't run for Congress and get elected? So don't be too hard on the voters in Staten Island. After all, they know something that many people don't....... When in Congress, being a crook is a benefit, not a hindrance. LOL.

    This is a good thing... the guy is unstable. Isn't this the same guy who threatened to throw a reporter off the Capitol building balcony which was caught on video?

    He doesn't seem smart enough to get away with illegality (unlike many others in Congress who have, I'm sure, been doing illegal things for decades without getting caught), he had a temper that doesn't bode well with politics, and his public persona is one of a bully and jackass. Hopefully a stint in jail will help him re-evaluate himself.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
