Announcement expected Monday on Courser, Gamrat investigation
LANSING, Mich. — An announcement is expected Monday on findings from a House Business Office investigation into alleged inappropriate use of taxpayer resources and staff by Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat, a source told FOX 17 Sunday night.
The investigation is finished, but any details of findings will not be released until the they can be presented to House Speaker Kevin Cotter, R-Mt. Pleasant.
The freshman lawmakers and conservative favorites have admitted to having an extramarital affair after the Detroit News obtained and released audio recordings of Courser trying to persuade an aide to take part in a bizarre coverup involving allegations that Courser had been caught with a male prostitute.
Courser has since claimed he was being blackmailed by powerful Lansing forces into sending out the cover up email.
Last week, House members passed a resolution ordering an investigation into whether Rep. Todd Courser and Rep. Cindy Gamrat are fit to hold office.
Both have stated publicly they will not resign.
