Cindy Gamrat plans public statement
One of the key figures in a cover-up scandal that’s rocked the state Capitol is expected to speak out tomorrow.
State Representative Cindy Gamrat, R-Plainwell, has remained silent and out of public view since the scandal broke last week. House leaders are looking into allegations that she and state Representative Todd Courser, R-Lapeer, tried to force their office staffs to be part of a scheme to cover up their extra-marital affair. Both are vocal social conservatives and part of the tea party movement.
Courser has posted statements on his web page and social media saying he and Gamrat are targets of the Lansing Republican establishment, and victims of a blackmail attempt.
Gamrat has scheduled her first public appearance at the office of a criminal defense attorney.
