MDP Statement on Grand Jury Indictment of GOP State Rep

LANSING—The Michigan Democratic Party issued the following statement today on behalf of MDP Chair Lavora Barnes regarding the federal grand jury indictment of state Rep. Larry Inman (R-Williamsburg) for bribery and attempted extortion:

“The charges against Rep. Inman are incredibly disappointing and concerning. Not only is Inman accused of violating the trust of his constituents, the oath of his office, and the law, but his actions, if true, show a deeply troubling pattern of Republican disdain for the working people of our state. This is a stark reminder that elections have consequences. The citizens of Michigan deserve representatives that put the people of our state first and do not abuse the trust of the public or the power of their position. It is now up to Speaker Lee Chatfield to put party politics aside and do what is right for the 104th District and our state by demanding Inman’s immediate resignation.”
