New York holds special congressional election to replace Grimm

U.S. Representative Michael Grimm of New York at a news conference after his guilty plea at the Brooklyn federal court in New YorkNew Yorkers voted in a special election to replace disgraced Representative Michael Grimm on Tuesday, a month before his sentencing for federal tax evasion. Among the candidates to fill the 11th congressional district seat is Staten Island District Attorney Dan Donovan, who drew national attention last year for presenting evidence to a grand jury that did not indict a white police officer in the choking death of an unarmed black man, Eric Garner, during an attempted arrest. Donovan is the Republican candidate in the city’s only Republican-leaning district, which encompasses the New York City borough of Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn. His Democratic challenger is Vincent Gentile, a member of the New York City Council and former state senator.
