Staten Island congressman denies 17-minute sex romp in Brooklyn wine bar
The New York Daily News ^ | October 16, 2013 | Joey Scarborough, Dan Friedman, & Corinne Lestch

Staten Island Rep. Michael Grimm denied reports Tuesday that he had a kinky 17-minute sex romp with a woman in the unisex bathroom of a Brooklyn wine bar.

The Republican congressman, who is single, said he didn’t score at The Owl’s Head in Bay Ridge on the Friday preceding the government shutdown two weeks ago. “I will not dignify this absurd distortion of the facts with a response,” the pol said, calling the accusations a “Democrat-led smear campaign.”

A source said Grimm went to the bathroom only to check on the woman, who was upset.

“It wasn’t 17 minutes,” the source added.

So that's the part he denies?

It wasn’t a 17 minute relationship. That was not the timeframe.

This happened last Autumn and no one made any effort to persuade him to drop out of the race. What a joke!

The Republican congressman, who is single,

He's single, it was allegedly with a woman, so why would this be news even if true? And why would it be anybody's business?

Especially when the bar has a unisex bathroom. What did they expect would be the result of that arrangement?

They're angry that he's heterosexual.

“why would this be news even if true?”

Because he wasn’t yelling “Fire Donald Sterling, Fire Donald Sterling, ...” during the episode.

Well, for one thing, it was in a public place. He didn’t even have to class to spring for a hotel room.

How do we know it wasn’t a transexual?
Has a woman come forward, or backward for that matter??

Apparently the dems are upset about two things

1. The alleged romp was with a women

2. The alleged romp was not with a woman of color

The bastards twice as guilty in their eyes!

Because he's a Republican in New York City.

It wasn't 17 minutes....it was 16 minutes 59 seconds.

He is single, so WTF, he wasn't cheating on his wife. I think he used poor judgement, but that is it.

I don’t think a single man should be forced out of Congress because he did some chick in a bathroom, big deal, if it even happened at all. If that was the only issue with guy, big whoop.

But it’s all irrelevant now, he’s finished because of his alleged criminal activity.

Someone needs to put a FIGURATIVE gun to his head and make him drop out the race so we can run a write-in in the primary to hopefully easily beat him and then have a chance at holding the seat in November. If he persists on pulling a Todd Akin and pretending in his arrogant little politician mind that he can still win, then beating him with a write in would difficult, if the pathetic local GOP even bothered to try at all. Their heads appear to be stuck up their you know whats.

I find nothing funny about this, other than the fact he went to a wine bar with unisex bathrooms.

It is such a shame not a single primary challenger filed before the deadline, not even some second tier dweeb. Brilliant covert investigation by the rats, and indictment right after the deadline passes. Naked political hardball. Imagine if Bush’s US Attorney had done this to a rat Congressman.

The NY-11 is a very competitive district, and the RAT candidate has a lot of money a d an Italian name (although he has the disadvantage of being from the Brooklyn part of the district and being a liberal jerk). This means that we couldn’t just replace Grimm (were it possible) with some second-tier candidate and expect to win. We’d need the GOP state senator from Staten Island or someone like that, and have him raise money and run hard.

Given the situation in which we find ourselves, I think that the best strategy for Republicans is to support Grimm (who is locally popular and is indisputably a great constituency-service politician) and keep hammering at how the indictments are politically motivated machinations of a corrupt Office of the U.S. Attorney. Grimm was being investigated for campaign-finance violations and they found bupkis; so the Obama Justice Department decided to charge Grimm with a bunch of crimes that all point to a single fact: that in Grimm’s restaurant, busboys were paid partly in cash and perhaps not everything was reported in their W2s. While such practice is illegal, it also is the MO of most restaurants in New York City. I wonder, how many NYC restaurants have been investigated for such violation, much less have the owner indicted gor a whole slew of crimes?

If we lose the race, we lose the race, and we can run a strong Staten Island candidate in 2016 (preferably with an Italian surname) and win it back. But ganging up on Congressman Grimm won’t help us win either now or later.

There comes a time when it's time to tell the Dem scandal -mongers "So what? F*** you."

I've not seen anything that indicates any illegality.

How much of a chance do you think he’d have, it you had to put a percentage on it?

I presumed zero, but if the charges are such BS.....

To: Impy

It is wholly dependent on the specific charges and how the GOP reacts to them. If the GOP distances itself from Grimm and calls on him to resign, then his odds of winning are close to 0%. If the GOP supports Grimm and helps him fight the charges, and turns the issue into one of selective prosecution or political persecution, and Grimm runs commercials depicting his work on behalf of victims of Hurricane Sandy, then I think that his odds would be about 50%. I don’t think that voters in Staten Island and Brooklyn will get all riled up about a restaurant owner who paid some employees in cash.

They just disinvited him from a fundraiser but I don’t think there have been any calls to resign.
