“Disgraced ex-Congressman Michael Grimm (R-NY), who’s running for his old job carrying President Trump’s ‘drain the swamp’ torch, got a pretty sweet deal from one of the swamp’s biggest lobbying firms,” the New York Daily News reports.
Instead of paying the $421,788, in a “confidential settlement” Grimm paid just $25,000. “That means Grimm, if elected, would go to Congress with a six-figure debt forgiven by one of the most entrenched lobbying firms in Washington, D.C.”
When reporter Greg Smith pressed for more details, spokesman Michael Caputo emailed: “Please print out my statement, roll it into a little ball, and shove it up your tight liberal ass Greg. Reporters like you are why Donald Trump won.”
