CONGRESSMAN-FEDERAL PROBE
Prosecutors charge Texas woman close to NY Congressman Grimm with making illegal contributions

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, April 25, 2014 8:35 PM EDT
NEW YORK


A Texas woman who has been romantically involved with Republican U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm has been indicted in New York on charges of making illegal campaign contributions.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn unsealed the indictment against Diana Durand on Friday.

The indictment says she caused more than $10,000 in donations to be made in the names of other people between November 2009 and October 2010. It says she lied in June 2012 when she told the FBI she didn't reimburse straw donors for their contributions to Grimm's campaign.

The filing came the day Grimm's attorney announced criminal charges against the lawmaker were pending. He hasn't disclosed what charges. Prosecutors have declined to comment.

Durand attorney Stuart Kaplan says his client and Grimm became friends before he ran for office. He says she'll plead not guilty.
