More austerity pusher GOP hypocrisy and deceit. Michael Grimm (R-NY) indicted.

I met Congressman Michael Grimm (R-NY) several times while I was still at Fox News. I never liked or trusted him. He was a cocky dude and a diehard austerity pusher. "Too much spending, we gotta cut, balance the budget,"  blah, blah, same talk as all the other sadistic Conservative cretins. He didn't care who got taxed (yes, spending cuts are tax increases): seniors, students, children, needy families, as long as it wasn't his rich NY friends. They got to keep whatever.

Well it looks like Grimm has now been indicted on charges of Federal tax evasion, lying to authorities. He kept two sets of books of course at his Manhattan restaurant so he could show one to the IRS and keep the real money for himself. (What? Tax me???)

Another classic hypocritical asshole. No problem taking money from the needy and regular working stiffs, but the millionaires...they get to keep it all.

I wrote about this dude along with other Conservative cretins like NJ Governor Chris Christie (here and here) in several posts last year.

Grimm may be finally getting his due, but he won't go quietly. The guy is running for re-election so shame is clearly a word that is not in his vocabulary.

Karma's a bitch, eh Mike?

If you're reading Elizabeth Warren's book, "A Fighting Chance" read the anecdote about her meeting with Michael Grimm when he was first elected. It's at location 3395/8039 under "Don't Believe in Government". He showed his ignorance right off the bat.

Wow. Thanks for that. I will!

Those who really showed their ignorance are the constituents who elected him.

We can't survive by trying to fix the symptoms. Gotta address the cause.
