Staten Island congressman Michael Grimm will plead guilty to one count of federal tax evasion Tuesday. That's according to several reports.
When the indictment was announced, Grimm told reporters "Since day one, the press has been fed all types of innuendos and accusations to support, and let me be very clear, a political witch hunt."
Grimm has been facing a 20-count federal indictment since April. Most of the charges come from Grimm's time operating Healthalicious, a Manhattan restaurant. Prosecutors say he falsified wage reports to conceal at least a million dollars from the federal government.
