Mr. Grimm, a former agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a Roman Catholic who regularly attends Sunday Mass, traveled around the New York region with one of the rabbiÃ¢ÂÂs top aides, Ofer Biton, to raise campaign money from the rabbiÃ¢ÂÂs followers. In all, the Grimm campaign collected more than $500,000 from the followers, according to numerous interviews and an analysis of Mr. GrimmÃ¢ÂÂs campaign records.
That money " more than half of the total that Mr. Grimm raised from individuals " proved instrumental in his upset of the Democratic incumbent in November 2010. Since then, Mr. Grimm has established a profile as a rising Republican star.
But now, Mr. Biton, an Israeli citizen, is being investigated by the F.B.I. and federal prosecutors in Brooklyn over accusations that he embezzled millions of dollars from the rabbiÃ¢ÂÂs congregation. And an examination by The New York Times has highlighted Mr. BitonÃ¢ÂÂs unusual role in the Grimm campaign " as well as questionable donations that the rabbiÃ¢ÂÂs followers said Mr. Grimm had accepted.
