MI Attorney General Bill Schuette Accused of Using Office as Political Enterprise

A candidate running for Michigan governor is now fighting off potential legal trouble.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette was sued in May by Hugh Madden, who works at the liberal advocacy group Progress Michigan.

Schuette is accused of using his office as a political enterprise.

Tuesday the Detroit Free Press uncovered e-mails from Schuette from 2015, that’s the same time Schuette endorsed Jeb Bush for president.

In two of the messages, Schuette enticed staffers with gift certificates for landing the most endorsements.

The e-mails were sent to personal not state accounts and some were sent outside normal work hours.

Schuette requested the documents in the lawsuit not be turned over until the judge rules on his motion to dismiss the case.
