    Michigan lawmaker gives tearful apology to family 01:45

    Story highlights


    • The Michigan lawmakers at the center of an affair and cover-up have been forced out of the legislature
    • Michigan Rep. Todd Courser resigned his seat early Friday morning and state Rep. Cindy Gamrat was expelled not long after



    Washington (CNN)The Michigan lawmakers at the center of a sex scandal at the Statehouse were forced out by angry colleagues early Friday morning, following hours of heated debate.

    Rep. Todd Courser resigned his House seat at 3:12 a.m., according to the Detroit Free-Press, and one hour later Rep. Cindy Gamrat, his colleague with whom he reportedly had an affair, was expelled by the legislature on a 91-12 vote.

    The moves came just a day after Courser apologized for the affair, as a 90-minute recording was played for lawmakers in which he asked his staffer to concoct a bizarre cover-up story alleging that he was a drug and porn addict who paid for sex with men.


    The expulsion of Gamrat and forced resignation of Courser come one week after House investigators determined both lawmakers had lied about their relationship and their knowledge of the cover-up.

    "It's an unfortunate chapter where we're at, but it's time to turn a page and go in a different direction and obviously heal, in my own house and in this body as well," Courser told the Free-Press Friday morning. "It's been hell."

    That should tell you how successful the gay lobby has become. A straight man can try hide under their umbrella and try to hide his straight indiscretions.

    I won't disagree that the "gay lobby" is strong. However, what does that have to do with this? The reason I asked is because this was a straight relationship, not a gay one.

    I think it was the man playing a perverted interpretation of chivalry. A husband with another man
    would command that the spotlight be on him instead of her. He might have been trying to save her marriage. That's the best
    explanation I could come up with...
    He would hide behind the "gay lobby" and fake like he was a closeted gay man.
    No one would say anything negative about a gay man.
    Everyone win!
