On the Issues

Record in Office

Michael Grimm currently serves as United States Representative for New York's 11th Congressional District, since 2010.

Committee and Subcommittee assignments: Committee on Capital Markets – Subcommittee on Capital Markets and Government Sponsored Enterprises; Subcommittee on Monetary Policy and Trade: Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

Indictment: In April 2014, Grimm was indicted on 20 counts of fraud charges in connection with a health food establishment which he co-owned prior to serving in Congress. Some Republicans have noted that the indictment is a political move to oust the only member of Congress from NYC who is Republican, and that the timing of his indictment prevented the Republican party from putting a new candidate on the ballot.
