LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Two Republicans who were forced out of the Michigan Legislature in a sex scandal have filed lawsuits, claiming their rights were violated during the investigation by their House colleagues.

Todd Courser of Lapeer County is seeking millions of dollars. Cindy Gamrat of Allegan County is seeking at least $25,000. They filed separate lawsuits this week in federal court in western Michigan.

Gamrat is serving as her own lawyer.

Courser quit the House last year while Gamrat was expelled by lawmakers. Courser was accused of soliciting an aide to send a phony email to cover up an affair with Gamrat.

Separately, Courser is facing criminal charges related to the scandal. He denies wrongdoing. Charges against Gamrat were dismissed by a judge.

    My God,why doesn’t this pair of sleazy, morally bankrupt individuals simply vanish? I truly hope that the judge finds the suits without merit, and throws their sorry asses out the door immediately.

    Todd, Todd, the cheatin’ man,
    Where did your conscience go,
    It gushed out like an open spout,
    Now I’ll make lots of dough.

    Cindy, Cindy, the Tea Party star,
    Where did your conscience go,
    It’s drowned under his open spout,
    That’s why I still play with my beau.
