GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — “To The Point” continues to introduce you to the candidates running in a special election for the 80th District seat in the Michigan House of Representatives.
The seat is vacant because Cindy Gamrat, who previously held it, was expelled from office after admitting misconduct and misuse of public resources in covering up an extramarital affair with fellow Republican representative Todd Courser of Lapeer. They’re both running for their respective old seats.
But Gamrat told “To The Point” that the expulsion wasn’t about her misconduct. Rather, she claims, it was about her politics.
“You know, there’s been a lot of false allegations in the news,” she said.
When To The Point host Rick Albin pressed Gamrat on what those false allegations were, she said, “I don’t know that you want to spend the whole time and I don’t want to spend the whole time going-”
“I don’t, but if there’s something false out there, we should know,” Albin said.
“There’s been a whole bunch of false things, Rick, and I haven’t been found guilty of anything,” Gamrat said.
Above in this Oct. 18, 2015 episode of “To The Point,” hear more from Gamrat, and Republican primary candidates Bill Sage and Jim Siver discuss why they think they should be elected to represent the 80th District, which includes most of Allegan County.
