On one side he's happy for Federal Funding which he would also vote against. The former FBI agent is also under investigation by the FBI for potential campaign fund irregularities.
Gee & he was going to be one of their up & coming stars I swear it's like the Sopranos the Reps whack a DEm & in return the Dems whack a Rep.

Thanks to a federal funding increase, Staten's Island's Richmond University Medical Center gets 32 new medical residents

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 rabbi’s top aides, Ofer Biton, to raise campaign money from the rabbi’s followers. In all, the Grimm campaign collected more than $500,000 from the followers, according to numerous interviews and an analysis of Mr. Grimm’s 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 rabbi’s congregation. And an examination by The New York Times has highlighted Mr. Biton’s unusual role in the Grimm campaign " as well as questionable donations that the rabbi’s followers said Mr. Grimm had accepted.
