Page (1) of 1 - 12/30/14||
|The New York City prosecutor at the heart of the controversy over a grand jury's decision not to indict a white policeman in the chokehold death of a black man said on Tuesday that he may run for the congressional seat being vacated by Michael Grimm. 58-year-old District Attorney Daniel Donovan, who prosecutes cases in the New York City borough of Staten Island, is eyeing the 11th Congressional District seat that will be left open when Grimm, a Republican, resigns on Jan. 5. Grimm, who was elected in November to a third term in office while indicted for federal tax fraud, is stepping down ahead of his sentencing on June 8.
