In a 20-count indictment, Michael G. Grimm, a Republican from Staten Island now in his second term, was accused of underreporting wages and revenue while running an Upper East Side restaurant, essentially keeping two sets of records. Prosecutors say that Mr. Grimm concealed more than $1 million in gross receipts for the restaurant, and failed to report hundreds of thousands of dollars in employee wages, thus fraudulently lowering his federal and state tax payments. According to the indictment, unsealed on Monday, he also lied under oath in a deposition taken in January 2013, while he was a member of Congress.
