Staten Island Congressman Michael Grimm Makes Court Appearance
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Prosecutors say the evidence against Staten Island Congressman Michael Grimm, who is accused of evading taxes, includes thousands of emails.
Federal prosecutors told a federal judge in Brooklyn on Monday that the emails had been turned over to lawyers for Grimm.
The embattled Republican was charged last month in a 20-count indictment on mail, wire and tax fraud. The charges stemmed from an ongoing investigation of his campaign fundraising.
