MI House Passes Resolution Against State Rep. Larry Inman

The push to get State Representative Larry Inman out of office has reached another peg on the ladder. Shortly after noon Thursday his fellow representatives passed a resolution urging Rep. Inman to resign.

Inman represents all of Grand Traverse County. He is facing federal charges over an alleged scheme to trade votes in campaign money.

Now that it has passed, this resolution officially puts him on notice to resign. If he does not, lawmakers are set to start the expulsion process.

Inman denies any wrongdoing. His attorney, Christopher Cooke, tells the AP the vote is “one more punitive action taken before Representative Inman has had a full opportunity to air his side of the story.” Cooke has said in the past that there are no plans for Inman to resign until the court case plays out.

The 104th District Representative has not voted in Lansing since the indictment back in May. Inman has also been removed from the Michigan House Republican Caucus and all the committees he was on because of the federal charges.

Today’s resolution passed 98-8. All eight ‘no’ votes came from Democrats.
