    Bill Clinton’s alleged mistress Julie McMahon was donating to Hillary Clinton while she was having an affair. She also worked for a controversial securities firm. The Daily Mail reported that McMahon dubbed the “Energizer” by Secret Service met Clinton in 1998 while he was still in the White House. The Mail also stated that McMahon was seeing Clinton sexually for 13 years in 2014. McMahon, the daughter of a wealthy Democratic donor, donated to Hillary in 2000 and 2002. ... McMahon was listed as unemployed for most of her political donations but we found that she’s a director at Energy...
  • Scalise brings back Boehner's familiar right flank hangover

    House Speaker John Boehner's not waiting until New Year's Day for a hangover -- his headache is already here. Back-to-back House Republican dramas in the final week of the year are the latest indication that many of the issues the GOP hoped to leave behind when they take full control of Congress next week — an unruly base and scandal-prone members — will continue to dog them in the new year, and might even kick off 2015 with an attempted coup on the Speakership. Though Boehner was successfully able to convince Rep. Michael Grimm to resign on Monday after pleading...

    U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm plans to resign, Fox News confirmed Monday, one week after the Staten Island congressman admitted to federal tax evasion. Grimm, who was re-elected to a third term representing New York's 13th district in November, is expected to resign sometime this week. Grimm, a Republican, pleaded guilty on Dec. 23 in federal court in Brooklyn to one count of aiding in the filing of a tax return
  • New York GOP Felon Michael Grimm Shows True Gun-Grabber Colors (NY “GOP” Alert!)

    If there’s a takeaway from this, it’s gun owners must keep in mind that just because a politician is part of the GOP does not mean he is worth any more than a Blue State Democrat when it comes to the Second Amendment. Republicans, like Mark Kirk, Dan Coats and Peter King are every bit the self-made enemies of the right to keep and bear arms as Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein. Politically-active gun owners need to keep that in mind and refuse to financially support the party through the RNC, which expends resources electing and retaining seats for such...

    How Michael Grimm (R-NY) won re-election to the House in November may be the greatest political mystery of 2014, having tax-evasion and fraud charges as well as a televised threat to a journalist hanging over his head. After all, his NY-11 district has only an R+2 Cook rating, so it’s not as though it resembles a district like … oh, Charlie Rangel’s D+41 NY-13, for example. Having prevailed despite those handicaps, Grimm refuses to resign his office even after pleading guilty to felony tax evasion:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Grimm faces up to three years in prison for...

    NBC New York ^ | 12/23/2014
    New York Rep. Michael Grimm pleaded guilty to a single count of tax fraud Tuesday in Brooklyn federal court. The guilty plea comes one month after the congressman, a Republican who represents Staten Island, was elected to a third term. In April, Grimm was named in a 20-count indictment that accused him of under-reporting the payroll and earnings of his Upper East Side restaurant, Healthalicious, which he ran from 2007 to 2010. He pleaded not guilty in federal court and was released on bond. Prosecutors alleged Grimm employed a number of immigrant workers who did not have legal status to...

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/2/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    The poll sampled 15 percent, (47/32) more Democrats than Republicans; and this was a fair reflection of the 11th Congressional District of New York. But that didn’t help Democrat challenger Domenic Recchia one bit. The results were devastating for the Democrats’ dreams of connecting the dots and controlling every C.D. in New York City. By way of full disclosure it must be noted the Recchia is a classic Democrat, “Charlie McCarthy crash dummy” who will repeat anything he is told to say by Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi. Nevertheless, that is one of the factors that makes this survey result...
  • Chuck Todd Says Staten Island Race 'Fight Between Mob Families'

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Did Chuck Todd just do it again? His comment a couple of weeks ago that Dem Alison Lundergan Grimes "disqualified herself" for refusing to say whether she voted for Barack Obama was quickly made into an ad by the McConnell campaign. On today's Morning Joe, Todd made a highly quotable claim about another race. Todd described the campaign for a congressional seat in a district located in Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn as "a fight between mob families." That sent Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough scrambling to disassociate themselves from the Meet the Press moderator. And at the end...

    Coach is Right ^ | 9/20/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    I’m so disgusted with the Republicans that I’m actually expecting nothing from the coming election. Nevertheless, there are a few nettlesome facts that kind of stand in the way of those who are ready to throw themselves over a cliff worrying about a Democrat comeback. In Iowa, for example, Joni Ernst is up 6 points in a race that is supposed to be “thisclose.” In Colorado, Cory Gardiner is up 8 points and Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper is down by 10. The actually embattled Mary Landrieu is down 13 points (51/38) to Bill Cassidy in Louisiana and Scott Brown is...

    Rep. Michael Grimm (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) got some full-throated support from ally Guy Molinari and radio talk show host Geraldo Rivera on Tuesday. Appearing on Rivera's radio show on WABC, Molinari called Grimm "a great American" said he was certain that the criminal case against Grimm was a political witch hunt aimed at defeating the only GOP member of the city's House delegation. "There's no question about that whatsoever," Molinari said.

    Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm denied reports Tuesday that he had a kinky 17-minute sex romp with a woman in the unisex bathroom of a Brooklyn wine bar. The Republican congressman, who is single, said he didn’t score at The Owl’s Head in Bay Ridge on the Friday preceding the government shutdown two weeks ago. “I will not dignify this absurd distortion of the facts with a response,” the pol said, calling the accusations a “Democrat-led smear campaign.” A source said Grimm went to the bathroom only to check on the woman, who was upset. “It wasn’t 17 minutes,” the...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Rep. Michael Grimm (R-Staten Island/Brooklyn) is expected to be indicted by the U.S. Attorney's Office in New York following a long federal investigation, his attorney told the Advance. In a statement to the paper, Washington D.C. attorney William McGinley said "After more than two years of investigation plagued by malicious leaks, violations of grand jury secrecy, and strong-arm tactics, the U.S. Attorney's Office has disclosed its intent to file criminal charges against Congressman Grimm. We are disappointed by the government's decision, but hardly surprised." McGinley said, "From the beginning, the government has pursued a politically driven...

    Rep. Michael Grimm is expected to be indicted by the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Loretta Lynch, according to the New York Republican’s lawyer. Grimm has been under investigation by federal authorities for alleged campaign finance violations. The federal charges against Grimm, set to be unveiled by next week, are expected to include mail and wire fraud, said a source familiar with the case. The New York Times reported that the charges may be connected to a restaurant that Grimm owned after he left the FBI in 2006, although Grimm’s attorneys could not confirm that at...

    Michael Grimm’s supporters have latched on to the Bill Maher issue as a reason to vote against Domenic Recchia, as though Maher is Recchia’s boss instead of just an irrelevant fool. But Grimm’s actual boss in Congress is far more meaningful — the man who contributed thousands to Grimm’s campaign, John Boehner.

"No, no, you’re not man enough, you’re not man enough. I’ll break you in half. Like a boy," Grimm responded. Here is the transcript released by NY1...

I believed that the reputation and credibility of the United States was on the line and that we had to send a strong message that the use of...

    Their official name is the Richmond County Tea Party Patriots -- and they arguably put Congressman Michael Grimm (R-NY) in office twice, first in 2010 when Tea Party supported this U.S. Marine veteran for the U.S. House, and again in 2012. Grimm won the 2010 general election for his district which covers both parts of New York City's Staten Island and Brooklyn with 51 percent of the vote. Ron Devito also created a video of the entire collection of speeches. It can be seen on YouTube.
