Michigan Republican lawmaker Larry Inman charged with trying to sell vote to labor union

Source: Fox 2 Detroit News

A federal grand jury has indicted state Rep. Larry Inman on charges of attempted extortion, soliciting a bribe and lying to the FBI.

Inman is a Republican from the Traverse City area who is serving his third term in the House after decades as a local official in northern Michigan.

Inman is accused of pledging to vote against an effort to repeal Michigan's prevailing wage law if he could get campaign contributions from a carpenters union.

According to the indictment, Inman suggested a $5,000 campaign contribution wasn't enough and he wanted more money before the house vote.

Prosecutors say the union didn't respond as requested, and Inman voted to repeal the law - which was passed 56 to 53.

The indictment states that the communicationg was done via text and included one message that said "we never had this discussion."

Son of a bitch Republican Michigan lawmaker- trying to steal the food out of the mouths of the working man, then lying to the F.B.I. about it.

I hope I get on his jury. And I hope he is convicted and spends years behind bars.
