Congressman Grimm [R-NY], "with a heavy heart", to resign after all
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Congressman Michael Grimm [Republican-NEW YORK: 11th Congressional District] has announced his intention to resign, effective 5 January 2015 (NOTE: after the new 2-year term to which he had just been elected will have begun on 3 January, but just before the new 114th Congress itself first convenes on 6 January). "This decision is made with a heavy heart", the Congressman said, adding that "I do not believe that I can continue to be 100% effective in the next Congress and therefore- out of respect for the Office and the people I so proudly represent- it is time for me to start the next chapter of my life".

Grimm had already pleaded guilty to one count of Federal Tax Evasion on 23 December last and his sentencing- possibly to a term in prison- has been scheduled for this coming June. Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) will now have to call a Special US House Election to fill the vacancy caused by Grimm's resignation.

Congressman Grimm (R-New York) will not resign: instead says he's "going to get back to work"
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

After pleading guilty to one count of Federal Tax Evasion, U.S. Representative Michael Grimm [Republican: NY 11th Congressional District] said he plans to stay in Congress (to which he was re-elected this past 4 November). "As long as I'm able to serve, I'm going to", Grimm told reporters- an apparent reference to the possibility he might, later, be sentenced to serve time in prison. "I'm going to get back to work and work as hard as I can", the Congressman added.

If Grimm does not resign his seat (his resignation would necessitate a Special Election to fill the resultant vacancy), the U.S. House of Representatives could take a variety of actions against him- including Reprimand, Censure or even Expulsion. It is as yet unclear what the Republican leadership in the House would be most likely to do after the new 114th Congress convenes in January, but there are indications that Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) may well ask Grimm to resign later, if not sooner.

Rep Grimm (R-NY) to plead guilty to a felony on Tue 23 Dec: may be forced to resign his US House seat
by TheGreenPapers.com Staff

Media reports indicate that Congressman Michael Grimm [R-New York] will plead guilty on Tuesday 23 December 2014 to one count of felony Tax Fraud. The issue thereafter will be whether or not he will try to hold on to his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives (to which he was re-elected this past November): if he should- in fact- resign, it will create a vacancy in the incoming 114th Congress which would then have to be filled via Special Election. Current indications are that Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) might not allow him to be seated, should he try to take his seat, next January and that- if necessary- moves to expel him from the House might well take place should Grimm not so resign.

The occasion was the official Dedication of a National Military Cemetery at the battlefield in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania where only a few months before, Union and Confederate forces had met in fiercest fighting over the course of three days- the first three of same in July of that same year: the Federal Army of the Potomac was here attempting to ....

Well, Election 2014 has now come and gone: seems like not all that long ago The Green Papers was first dealing with the returns from the first Primaries of the year (in Texas, some eight months earlier on Tuesday 4 March)-- but, by now, the dust kicked up by yet another election campaign "season" is beginning to settle as the results of race after race are canvassed and, ultimately, certified by the election authorities in each State of the American Union and, therefore, it is now time to take at least a cursory- where not also preliminary- look at what it all has meant.
