Grimm Indicted on Fraud Charges

Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) was indicted on 20 counts including "federal fraud charges for underreporting the wages and payroll while running an Upper East Side restaurant, concealing the actual payroll in a separate set of computer records," the New York Times reports.

He also lied under oath in January 2013, while he was a member of Congress, during a deposition, the indictment says.

Roll Call: "Grimm will be on the general-election ballot unless one of three unlikely events takes place... He has already been designated by the state party as its nominee, so the only way he can be removed is by moving out of the district, running for a judgeship or being convicted before the general, the source said."

Cook Political Report moves the seat to "Lean Democrat."
