#34, Michael Grimm (NY-11)

(This is for my 2014 U.S. House voting guide.)
  • Here, Grimm was indicted on 20 counts, including fraud and perjury (sweet).
  • He threatened to throw a reporter off a balcony inside the Capitol building (here and here).
  • He sponsored something called the Whistleblower Improvement Act here, which, actually, would force whistleblowers to talk to their employers first (yeah, some “improvement” that is).
  • As noted here, some of his campaign contributors are in the porn business (funny).
  • Here, he said that his campaign office had been vandalized, though police couldn’t find any destruction to the computer equipment that Grimm claimed took place; oh, and he equated the vandalism of his campaign headquarters with the Gabby Giffords shooting (jackass).
  • Grimm is opposed in the 2014 election cycle by Dem Domenic M. Recchia Jr. - to help the Dem challenger, click here.
