Last week, in the weirdest political sex scandal I’ve heard in a long while, it was revealed that Michigan State Rep. Todd Courser had an affair with the also-married Rep. Cindy Gamrat — both of whom are Christian conservatives fighting for “traditional” marriage. Courser attempted to keep their hookup under wraps by distributing a fake email alleging that he fucked a male prostitute. Because I assume that’s what it says in the GOP playbook somewhere.
It didn’t work. The whole story hit the media. And now there’s a question of what the politicians will do.
Yesterday, Rep. Gamrat issued a public statement (with her husband standing beside her) in which she announced she would not be stepping down.
