The following statement can be attributed to Jamie Lyons-Eddy, Director of Campaigns and Programs for Voters Not Politicians, regarding the House vote on Rep. Larry Inman:
Voters Not Politicians is pleased that a strong bipartisan majority of the Michigan House of Representatives has voted to urge state Rep. Larry Inman to resign from office. It is refreshing to see leaders from both parties work together on the resolution, rather than try to politicize this situation.
We expect that the House will be prepared to expel Inman from the chamber if he does not resign immediately. We urge both chambers of the Legislature to maintain the bipartisan momentum on good government policies and move quickly to establish stronger anti-corruption rules to make Michigan’s government cleaner and more accountable to voters.
Voters Not Politicians and our volunteers in the Traverse City region have been vocal about the need to remove Inman from office since we learned in May of the text messages showing he had linked his vote and that of others to campaign contributions.
