Courser/Gamrat Have Deceived Their Constituents
LANSING — Progress Michigan released the following statement regarding the news that Republican state representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat allegedly used state resources to try to cover up a extramarital affair between the conservative lawmakers. The use of public funds to cover up private failings is a clear violation of the oath that they both took when sworn into office.
“If Reps. Courser and Gamrat used state resources in an attempt to cover up their sexual affair, they have deceived their constituents and the public,” said Lonnie Scott, executive director of Progress Michigan. “These elected officials clearly have no regard for the trust that is given to them by the voters in their communities, whom Courser callously referred to as ‘the herd.’ It’s time for Courser and Gamrat to own up to this deception and take responsibility for their actions, they should resign their respective seats immediately.”
