There are a lot of things for michael grimm to be ashamed of; with one of the most significant being that he ran for congress at all. Common decency should have dictated that, as a guilty party willing to admit to at least one felony, grimm should have dropped out and left the race to an honest candidate.
Republicans should – must – tell him to resign his sorry backside immediately, or they\’ll take action to do it for him.
I wrote the above words in a blog that was posted one week ago today.
Last night, Michael Grimm announced he will resign from congress.
I don\’t know whether it was his decision alone, or he was pushed along by his own party. Either way, my reaction can be summed up in one word: Good.
