So he's the FBI now?

Admittedly, the first step is admitting that you have a problem.

And turning yourself in to the FBI is admitting that you have  quite a problem. It doesn't excuse his previous behavior, but it does suggest a positive change in character, and that's a good thing.

Still wouldn't vote for the felchmonkey, though. Unless his opponent were an even bigger felchmonkey. Then it'd be a tough call.

Well, I mean, if you don't meet many people of the Jewish faith, you aren't going to see their equivalents of faith healers, gurus, or psychics.  But religion is always going to be a gateway for mystic celebrities.

//I honestly don't know the general requirements for becoming a rabbi, though.  Could be a mitigating factor in education requirements or something that limits the overall number.

No, no, you're not man enough, you're not man enough. I'll break you in half. Like a boy.

Micheal Scotto's uncle is Anthony Scotto.

From Wiki:

Anthony M. Scotto (pronounced SKOH-toh") (born May 10, 1934)[1] is a New York mobster and labor union racketeer in the Gambino crime family who ruled the Brooklyn waterfront


Better watch your back in prison Grimm.

Maybe it's one of those Kabbalah promoters, like the ones who got Madonna to donate a ton of money.

Oh hey, how about that?

dittybopper: So he's the FBI now?


He was an FBI agent for several years before opening the Restaurant, which was mostly a money-laundering operation for the Israel/South American gun smugglers and forwarding a substantial amount of the surplus cash to the GOP. Somehow, that little restaurant managed to do several $millions in business in just a few years without having a lot of customers. He has some "interesting" connections to the Abergils.

He's Mafia through and through. Not the Italian/Sicilian type, the Israeli type.

Wow! That's kind of rad, in a spy drama kind of way. You make him ou to be a triple agent, entrepeneur, who got caught just as he was about to get elected to a high office. that is some Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy stuff right there.

Came for this.

By the way, WTF is up with the abrupt near-season-end addition of a junior Grimm sidekick?  I saw it coming once she had the fight with the sunglasses on, but I have no idea where they're going with this.

The Marine Corps is where he picked that up. Or maybe on Staten Island, where all the "bro-dudes" equate WWE as LIFE.

I'm torn. On one hand, he's a republican. on the other, he was threatening reporters. So, kinda breaks even.

Not for long.

Considering that this guy threatens to push reporters off balconies and break their bones..
of course, it's Michael Grimm, not Million-Laughs Charlie.

I wonder if he saw this coming a long time ago and going into politics was hail mary pass to beat this somehow.

He was an FBI agent so he should have known that wouldn't help him. Personally I think he thought that since he was an FBI agent they wouldn't investigate him very hard.

But what is interesting is that he is calling it a political witch hunt. So what he is saying is that the FBI is participating in a witch hunt against one of their own.

Is it possible that a FBI agent he noticed how politicians were getting away with everything.  Bob Menendez comes to mind.
