Plainwell State Rep. Won’t Resign
State Representative Cindy Gamrat says she's sorry to her constituents and her family for having an affair with a fellow state representative but she won't resign.
Gamrat, flanked by her husband and attorneys, told reporters -- during a roughly 10 minute news conference -- she strongly considered resigning but hasn't done anything wrong so she isn't stepping down.
Gamrat says she will cooperate with an internal investigation and welcomes it, saying it will show she didn't break any laws or House rules.
Gamrat also says she had nothing to do with an email State Representative Todd Courser allegedly had sent to Republicans in May outing him as a hard partying bisexual.
He hoped the email would distract from the extra-marital relationship he was having with Gamrat once it became public.
She will return to Lansing on Tuesday when the House comes back from summer break.
