Nice partisan media shill “coverage” — doesn’t name the Republican incumbent until the fifth paragraph, just drones on and on about the threat to their golden boy challenger and their sh!!!y mayor.
Of course, Grimm pushed for unenjoyment extension, but on the bright side threatened to throw some PMS reporter off a balcony or break him in half when harassed about an investigation into his campaign finances. Thanks SMGFan.

NYC rep.’s campaign office burglarized (GOP Rep. Michael Grimm)
[possibly to cover up having deleted several computer hard drives with election-related data on them. Grimm told the Staten Island (N.Y.) Advance his campaign had backed up the data regarding polling, voter registration and identification just hours prior to the break-in and no actual data was lost.]

If I had to make an educated guess, based on the current political climate and local election history, this congressional seat is looking pretty safe now for the GOP.
Pubbies plan to win a S/I Congressional seat by "necklacing" the Dem candidate w/ NYC mayor De Blobio.
I hear the fave DeBlobio joke at Joe's Corner Bar is about his honeymoon w/ a lesbian. The lezzie looking puzzled, says---- "you want to put what, where?"
Grimm is weak and is disappointedly not as conservative as originally thought. Obama won Staten Island and the district as a whole due to the stupid partisan hurricane. Grimm got only 52% 2 years ago.
I don’t think he’ll lose this year but I can’t call him safe, gotta keep an eye on that race.
