Weiner Told FBI About Grimm Extortion

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY) confirmed to Roll Call that he informed the FBI that now-Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) was allegedly attempting to extort campaign contributions from a politically well-connected orthodox rabbi.

"Grimm has previously been accused of accepting questionable donations collected by a former associate of Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto. Weiner's revelation would put Grimm, a former FBI agent himself, closer to the federal investigation surrounding Pinto's former associates."
