Capitol in WashingtonBy Bernard Vaughan and Aruna Viswanatha NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Representative Michael Grimm from New York was indicted on fraud charges in connection with a Manhattan fast-food restaurant he partly owned, according to court documents unsealed on Monday. The charges follow a federal probe of Grimm’s fundraising that has been going on for more than two years, and Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch told reporters a “larger investigation” was ongoing. Grimm is a former Marine who subsequently worked as an FBI agent. In January, he generated headlines when he threatened to throw a television reporter off a balcony after an interview in the U.S. Capitol on the night of President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address.
