TC Mayor Calls for Rep. Larry Inman to Resign

More voters are calling for Michigan Representative Larry Inman to resign.

That growing list now includes Traverse City Mayor Jim Carruthers. 

Mayor Carruthers and the group Voters Not Politicians will be holding a press conference at 1 p.m. Thursday pushing for Representative Inman’s resignation.

A federal grand jury indicted Inman last week.

He’s accused of bribery, attempted extortion and lying to the FBI.

Earlier this week Michigan Republicans voted to remove Representative Inman from the House Republican Caucus over the federal charges he’s facing.

The indictment accuses Inman of asking unions for money in exchange for his vote.

After the charges were announced, several Michigan Lawmakers, including the house speaker, started calling on Inman to resign.

Inman currently represents the 104th District, which is Grand Traverse County.
