Michael G. Grimm, the New York Congressman under investigation over his past ownership of a restaurant in Manhattan, is expected to turn himself over to federal authorities today, the Washington Post reports.

Grimm faces multiple charges connected to his former Manhattan health food restaurant that had ties with an Israeli fundraiser. The related donations reached more than $500,000.

The FBI declined to comment.

Grimm, who has denied improprieties, acknowledged collecting up to $300,000 in contributions from followers of Israeli Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto. Members of the congregation donated tens of thousands of dollars in allegedly illegal contributions that included gifts.
