Skubick: Report finds Courser, Gamrat misused taxpayer resources

LANSING, Mich (WLNS) – The preliminary results of a House investigation into the conduct of State Representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat are in.

Director of the House Business Office Tim Bowlin said he has found evidence of both misconduct and misuse of taxpayer resources by both lawmakers. Bowlin adds that the draft report of the findings has been sent on to outside counsel for review.

“Asking an outside counsel to review the report is a normal process to protect the privacy and confidentiality of affected individuals and ensure compliance with Human Resources regulations,” said Bowlin. “The findings will be made public once the legal review has been completed.”

Speaker of the House Kevin Cotter said the evidence of misconduct is troubling and he is directing his legal counsel to review the preliminary report for purposes of further disciplinary actions.

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