Capitol Bureau Chief of the Michigan Public Radio Network Rick Pluta discusses the Courser-Gamrat Report and scandal on Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson.  You can find the report here.  Here’s the essence of their conversation,

  • Real wrongdoings: The report confirms the affair as well as exposes Rep. Courser and Rep. Gamrat for their misuse of public funds and their violation of the Campaign Finance Act.
  • Punishment: With a two-thirds majority vote, the Michigan House of Representatives can expel both Courser and Gamrat for violating the public’s trust.
  • What’s next for Democrats?: Democrats now have the chance to capitalize on the missteps of Courser and Gamrat who have “damaged the Republican brand” according to Pluta.
