New York Republican congressman Grimm to be indicted, lawyer says

U.S. Representative Michael Grimm talks to the media after meeting with House Speaker John Boehner to discuss the relief fund hold up in Congress for Hurricane Sandy victims at the United States Capitol in WashingtonFederal prosecutors intend to bring criminal charges against Michael Grimm, a Republican U.S. congressman from New York who has been under investigation for campaign finance violations, his lawyer said on Friday. Attorney William McGinley condemned the expected charges as a “politically driven vendetta” against the congressman, who generated headlines in January when he threatened to throw a television reporter off a balcony after an interview in the U.S. Capitol building. Grimm’s confrontation with the reporter, which was caught on camera, took place on the evening of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address to Congress. “I will break you in half,” Grimm told the reporter with cable channel NY1 News, who had asked the Republican about the federal investigation into possible campaign finance violations.
