Probe finds misuse of resources by 2 Michigan lawmakers

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, MI (AP) -

An investigation into two Michigan Republican lawmakers who had an affair has found misconduct and misuse of taxpayer resources.

Such a finding could lead to their expulsion from the Michigan House.

House Business Office Director Tim Bowlin said Monday in a news release that his office submitted a draft report on the preliminary findings involving Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat to outside counsel for review.

The investigation was done to determine whether public resources were used to try and cover up the affair.

Courser has admitted to orchestrating a fictional email in May that said he was caught with a male prostitute to divert attention if the affair was revealed.

Gamrat and Courser have apologized, but said they didn't misuse resources. They previously have said they won't resign.
