|House Speaker John Boehner said Tuesday that N.Y. Rep. Michael Grimm made the right decision by resigning from Congress after pleading guilty to tax evasion charges. Boehner, R-Ohio, said that Grimm's decision was "honorable," adding that he knows Grimm made his decision "with the best interests of his constituents and the institution (of the House) in mind." Boehner said he appreciated Grimm's service to the House. Grimm, a New York Republican, had vowed to stay in Congress as long as he could, even after his guilty plea last week. But he said Monday night that he plans to resign effective Jan. 5.
