Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) pled guilty to a single count of tax fraud Tuesday afternoon. Now, there are a number of different consequences he could face in Congress, with the worst being a vote to have him expelled.
House Speaker John Boehner’s spokesman, Michael Steel, told NBC News: “We won’t have any announcements until the Speaker discusses the matter with Mr. Grimm.”
The short answer is yes. According to CRS, “no express constitutional disability or “disqualification” from Congress exists for the conviction of a crime, other than under the Fourteenth Amendment for “certain treasonous conduct.”
