FBI official: Rep. Grimm 'cheated, evaded, lied'
From the story on Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm's indictment:
"Rep. Grimm billed himself as a patriot and an American hero," said George Venizelos, head of the FBI's New York office. "... but Rep. Grimm was anything but an upstanding citizen. He cheated, evaded and then lied."
New York City's only GOP congressman alleges a political vendetta by the offices for which he once worked.
