    Not many countries in the world where this would happen, I mean, if he is guilty why does he stay on the job? More, why doesn’t anyone make him leave?

    Pleading guilty and not resigning is the worst kind of hubris for these politicians. You did something wrong, face the consequences like a stand-up human being. I don’t think these guys have any rationalization of consequences, though. Everything in their world is free or paid for, so why not reach out for a little more. I don’t think it’s noble to not resign, I think it’s a little scummy. You betrayed the public trust, now it’s time to move on.

    Come on, this is something crazy, how can someone plead guilty and don’t resign? Crook seems indeed the right expression, giving a bad name to all the political system, a shame that there aren’t mechanisms to kick him out automatically.

    In some countries, if you are charged with a crime, you are automatically suspended from any government offices you hold. If you are found not guilty, you are reinstated, and if found guilty, you are immediately and automatically fired. America should follow this example, so that the person has no choice but to leave office.

    I am glad that he resigned. If someone is pleading guilty to crimes, they probably should not be a part of the body that makes the laws. I think that you should have to have a perfectly clean criminal record to serve in any law making body.

    Well, I’m glad he finally resigned. Didn’t he threaten a news reporter on the air? I mean it’s one thing to stand your ground because you were wrongly accused, but the evidence was there…he just got caught and acted like a total jerk.

    This is exactly what is wrong with the political system. Politicians get all high and mighty and believe that they’re “untouchable”. I’m glad Grimm was caught and I’m looking forward to him having a grim future. You are in power to help, not to do whatever you please.

    How does this dude have 2.2 out of 5 despite being an actual crook, but Obama has a 1.5 and Biden has a 1? Someone might need to work on a balancing system for the ratings on here, because they are horribly skewed at the moment.

    That said – this dude is an actual moron. If there is one thing I’ve learned about the legal system in America it’s that you don’t screw over the IRS. They will get their money come hell or high water, and invariably they succeed in getting their man where other legal departments fail. He probably would have escaped justice if he had’t evaded his taxes. And there is something both hilarious and very sad about that.

    I wasn’t aware of this and I find this disgusting. This is just too much! The only good part of all this is that he was caught. I wish all of those corrupt politicians out there get caught too because I’m sure Michael Grimm is not the only one.

    What can we expect of regular people when our leaders are doing stuff like this? I’m so disappointed.

    This guy is clearly one of many examples of blatant corruption in politics. The types of crimes of which he was convicted seem to be commonplace in the American political system. It’s almost as if you have to engage in shady dealings in order to succeed. There are honest politicians, as far as we know, but they seem to be few and far between.

    Wow! Unbelievable! It’s like nowadays politicians have no shame whatsoever. Does anyone know what his sentence was? Well I hope he gets the maximum for his charges. It’s time to put a stop to the abuse of the hard working citizens of this country. The Judiciary System needs to make an example of these types of cases so that politicians take their positions and the law more seriously.

    He was a former FBI agent too? The problem is he was aware of his actions and also the consequences and got caught out. You can’t plead guilty and not resign, with his background he should have known that. It defies belief that people like this can join the FBI and also get voted into Congress.

    I don’t know how he can still hold his head up high and people still trust him.

    Why are we allowing these people to maintain their offices? They claim to use our tax dollars to “create new jobs,” then they settle for the cheapest option while using OUR money to line THEIR pockets. And even after being found out, they still get to keep their office? They still get to screw us over? This is unacceptable.

    We definitely need a new system to regulate people we put into office. It should mean something to us when a person admits to his crimes and then has no problem saying he won’t resign. Either Grimm truly believes he is above the law and untouchable , we won’t do anything about his crimes and he will keep his job, or both of those things. We shouldn’t have to wait until crooks decide to resign, they should be fired on the spot. We shouldn’t have to wait until they feel good and ready to do the right thing.

    With so many people out of a job, why give the few jobs still available to illegal immigrants that don’t pay taxes? But then again just look at Mr. Grimm and how he handles his taxes.

    Its really sad how our political system has yet to get rid of such individual. I can’t fathom why they wouldn’t past a law that states that people like Mr. Grimm would have to be retire right upon being convicted. This give me so much more confident in political leaders, not. Normal people would have been arrested and even put on black list, but here he is allow to continue to do his job! Like Marc said I wish they didn’t stop the investigation, I would like a deeper hole for the FBI. One where they will have a much harder time climbing out of.

    A shining example of what is wrong? Too many stories coming out? I wonder, how many of the citizens who pick up their daily newspaper, or tune in to the news at 10, 11, etc bother learning who their representatives are? Or do they just wait for a a story to come out and then start playing the blame game??? Yes he hired immigrants and then perjured himself to do it, and so does every other politician who has a business and needs cheap labor. Why would you expect him to tell the truth? He got into office by lying to you, just like he rest of them. Please America, stop being so naive.

    Micheal Grimm actually spoke at the beginning of my son’s T-Ball season last year in Brooklyn, encouraging the kids to do well and play hard; unbelievable! The arrogance of politicians who continue to deny and wait for the news cycle to end and the public memory to fade. Fortunately, the government’s memory didn’t fade and he will be doing his time in the Klink. He started out as a marine and FBI agent, two careers that are supposed to be about honor; hmm…

    I am so sick of hearing about politicians or wealthy business men committing tax fraud. This is such a focal point of what our people debate about, and yet our politicians can’t even pay their taxes honestly like the rest of us hard working citizens have to do. It’s disgusting and an outrage.

    I think politicians that have been proven guilty or have confessed to be guilty to a crime should have their position taken away from them. I don’t agree with the fact that he was allowed to stay in office after the fact, especially considering that he can’t be trusted. I sincerely hope he got what he deserved for this.

    Pleads guilty, but will not quit. Glad, He finally resigned. What a colossal shame! Why do they hang on even after proven guilty? They don’t want to sacrifice the luxuries, benefits and privileges that come with a legislator position.

    They are there to serve the public not to eat public money or view the legislative position as a money making opportunity. This country needs stringent laws to stop corruption at the top level.

    There seems to be a dangerous trend of our congressmen betraying the people. The crook needs be put in prison for as long as anyone else that does these types of crimes. I hate it when all these charges are brought up, they confess and then little to no time gets dispersed to them. It sends the message “hey keep doing what you’re doing”. The rest of society is left to deal with the consequences here; higher taxes; more criminals put into office and the same vicious cycle continues.

    Way too many fraud cases coming out these days in politics. Though I’m certainly glad they’re getting caught it’s still such a shame at how many people simply care about money. Also, it makes me wonder just how many are still getting away with it.

    It just goes to show what some of these politicians are really after. I’m starting think the only difference between many of them and criminals is whether they have been caught yet. I think it would have been better if he was just removed from office but whatever legal means were possible. Letting the man decide whether or not to resign is ridiculous. Maybe even initiating the process as some sort of symbolic gesture just to make the point when these crooks quit would be good.

    Pleads guilty but says he won’t resign. He really shouldn’t be the one who decides whether he can keep his position or not. Politicians doing ill things like this need to be punished and held accountable for their action like everybody else. But seems all they get is a slap on the risk!

    Well, as this person has ultimately resigned, one should say he had some good sense left in him (probably because he is from US). Unfortunately in our Country (India), majority of politicians will never confess to have done anything wrong (even if they are caught red-handed), they always have the opposition to blame. I wish good people come in more numbers in politics and remain responsible to others as well as to self .

    I always read a lot of comments where people say that it’s embarrassing, etc. I can’t bring myself to believe that. I don’t think these politicians have enough common sense OR humility to actually be embarrassed by the ignorant acts they carry out. There is never (NEVER) a shortage of politicians in the news for doing illegal, immoral, or ignorant things… It’s just obvious that there are a LOT of politicians who believe that the laws they sign into being are not meant for them to follow.

    This is the guy who threatened to throw a journalist off the balcony and kill him. Grimm didn’t realize that it was caught on sound and camera.

    The shocker to me is not that there are abusive people in the world, but that others line up behind them and defend their “rights” to abuse.

    After they get away with lie after lie, they start to feel bulletproof, I suppose. I’m pasting in a link about how to spot a liar – it’s good information for all of us:

Don’t these people know that everything they do is scrutinized and gone over with a fine tooth comb? Look at what Hilary’s dealing with right now.
