NEW YORK (AP) - Disgraced former Staten Island Congressman Michael Grimm has asked a judge to allow him to travel to Europe for a job interview.

He filed a letter in Brooklyn federal court Wednesday requesting modification of his bail conditions.

Grimm is free on $400,000 bond and is limited to travel within the United States.

The Republican resigned after pleading guilty to federal tax evasion in December.

His attorney says he’s pursuing an employment opportunity with a company doing business abroad that would require him to travel to Europe for a week in the spring.

The letter didn’t provide details about the job opportunity. Attorney Daniel Rashbaum didn’t return calls seeking comment.

A special election for Grimm’s seat is set for May 5.
