GOP Congressman’s Camp After Reelection: ‘Meet Me At The Bar For F**king Shots!’
Rep. Michael Grimm (R) was indicted on 20 counts, but despite that he was re-elected to his Staten Island-based House seat with a 13 point win.
[su_center_ad]At the Staten Island Hilton Garden Inn, Grimm’s campaign celebrated his victory over former New York City Councilman Democrat Domenic Recchia.
How do indicted politicians celebrate after a reelection? They do fucking shots, that’s how.
To loyal Grimm supporters, his legal problems were not the defining issue in the race.
“We know what the Democrats are doing to this country,” said Stella Eliano, 48, a supporter from Grimm’s neighborhood.
“Everyone is corrupt. Why am I going to penalize him? He didn’t raise our property tax by 18 percent. They are human beings. He’s not going to be convicted.”
Although 70-year-old Irv Elias wouldn’t say who he voted for, it was clear he had issues with Grimm.
“It’s because people on the Island are ignorant to the facts,” Elias said. “People would vote for Sarah Palin if she was running here.”
In January, Grimm threatened to throw a journalist off of a balcony after being asked about campaign finance allegations. “I’ll break you like a boy,” he said.
