Michael Grimm, Domenic M. Recchia Jr.

Seniors listen during a debate between Rep. Michael Grimm and his Democratic challenger Domenic M. Recchia Jr., at a candidates forum on Wednesday Oct. 1, 2014, at the Fort Hamilton Senior Citizen Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. In the first time debate between the two, Recchia called Grimm a liar and raised the issue of Grimm’s federal indictment on 20 counts for allegedly evading taxes by hiding more than $1 million in sales and wages while running a small Manhattan restaurant. Grimm dismissed the criticism as political mudslinging. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)
