Charlie LeDuff is a reporter for Detroit Fox's-affiliate who hosts The Americans with Charlie LeDuff. For his show this week he asked viewers for their pick for worst politician in America, planning to interview the winner.

Here's the promo for the show which features Republican Rep. Michael Grimm driving away from a chasing LeDuff.

Grimm was recently indicted on 20 counts of fraud and other charges related to a Manhattan restaurant he operated before he was elected to Congress.

According to federal prosecutors, Grimm allegedly hid more than a million dollars in store receipts to avoid federal and state law.

"In total, Grimm concealed over $1,000,000 in Healthalicious gross receipts alone, as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars of employees' wages, fraudulently depriving the federal and New York State governments of sales, income and payroll taxes," the indictment reads.

LeDuff told Fox11 in L.A. he eventually caught up with Grimm.
