Washington, D.C. – For years, an FBI investigation into alleged illicit campaign fundraising activity has dogged Michael Grimm. And recent developments make it clear that not only is the investigation proceeding apace, but it’s getting ever closer to Grimm himself. After all, the latest development involves Grimm’s ex-girlfriend, accused of orchestrating straw donations to Grimm’s campaign, who is now in plea deal negotiations with the U.S. Attorney.
“The wheels are coming off the Michael Grimm bus as the years-long FBI investigation into his illicit campaign activity gets closer and closer to Grimm himself,” said Andy Stone, Communications Director for House Majority PAC. “And apparently Grimm’s pressure relief valve is threatening physical violence against a reporter simply doing his job.”
