Well they're taking totally opposite approaches on dealing with the 'situation'.

She's still in hiding and has cancelled a public appearance scheduled for tonight...

nothing important...   just a meeting with her constituents...

you know...

the ones that elected her based on her high morals :o :o :o

On the other hand he seems to be in denial...

blaming it on someone 'bugging' his office!!!


Some of their records have been seized:

However, it sounds like in Michigan our reps can use private emails for conducting government business...

hummm....   that sounds familiar ;) ;) ;)

Quote
Allard said Monday the representatives didn't routinely use their state email accounts.

"Courser and Gamrat conducted state business almost exclusively through private email accounts and private cellphones,” Allard told The News.


Here's two articles about Courser's 'appeal':

http://www.mlive.com/lansing-news/index.ssf/2015/08/cotter_rips_completely_ridicul.html#incart_m-rpt-2

And the one on Cindy cancelling for tonight...

maybe she's going to stay home with her 16 yr old twins and talk about the bird and the bees 8* 8* 8*

This is no doubt a political blog but I did enjoy some of the author's 'innuendo' throughout:

They're conservative bedfellows who share the same positions.

Even some of the other Tea Party members are calling for him to resign:

If either one had the 'High Moral Standards' they tout...  They'd both get the hell out of office and crawl into their respective holes.  Turds of a feather...

Some very interesting comments from a blogger who was 'close' to both Gamrat and Courser (apparently not as close as they were with each other though):

Confirmed: Courser+Gamrat Met At Lansing Radisson For Dozens Of Sexual Trysts




I guess the developers knew exactly what they were doing when they put the hotel that close to the capitol ;) ;) ;)

I wonder if they have an 'hourly' rate special for legislators ??? ??? ??? ;D ;D ;D

Here's a 'time line' of events (not the intimate ones) from Mlive.  I wish they'd find some new photos for their articles.

For those legislators that prefer a more anonomous relationship, there are a number of tit bars and strip clubs on Jolly road within walking distance from the capitol and statehouse... 

Lansing has always been corrupt and will never change....

Well Todd isn't quitting and Cindy is keeping her mouth shut...

maybe if she would have done that in the first place she would't be in this 'situation' right now ;) ;) ;)

Todd has shared the texts from the 'blackmailer' though...

http://www.mlive.com/lansing-news/index.ssf/2015/08/michigan_rep_todd_courser_shar.html#incart_2box_

Plenty of people calling for resignations:

http://www.mlive.com/opinion/index.ssf/2015/08/todd_courser_cindy_gamrat_must.html#incart_m-rpt-2

Who is taking care of Cindy's constituents...   you know, the ones that 'elected' her:

http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/2015/08/11/gamrat-stays-quiet-amid-capitol-scandal/31470051/

A good editorial from the Detroit News:

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/opinion/editorials/2015/08/10/edit-hypocrites-house/31293065/


And of course there are plenty of people that are just going with the flow...   I got to digging around Twitter and found some interesting 'hashtags' about their purported 'affair':

Nothing like a little '#romanceattheraddy'...

https://twitter.com/hashtag/romanceattheraddy?f=tweets&vertical=default&src=hash

Looks like #gamrat was something she was using before things 'blew up'...  so to speak ;) ;) ;)

https://twitter.com/hashtag/gamrat

Looks like the same for #courser...

https://twitter.com/hashtag/courser

This guy is posting a lot of links under 'Tpartyfortwo':

https://twitter.com/tpartyfortwo


The 'affair' even made it on Jimmy Fallon last night.

http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/hillary-clintons-college-compact-donald-trump-remains-republican-frontrunner-monologue/2890414

If you want to skip Fallon's shots at Hillary and Trump then start at 2:35 ;) ;) ;)

She's still staying quiet...

you'd think she'd have some comment about her 'high moral fabric' and something about 'traditional marriage' ;) ;) ;)

I guess the good news is she's considered a 'rare example' of female politicians...

that should help her ratings :o :o :o

http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2015/08/rep_cindy_gamrat_a_rare_exampl.html


And Courser is still dodging reporters:

http://www.wxyz.com/news/courser-avoids-questions-from-7-investigators-over-affair-with-cindy-gamrat

The guy that Courser is pointing his finger at has a few things to say about Courser's mental stability:

They even made the Free Press comic:

I heard on JR that 80% of those asked want then to resign voluntarily.

Gamrat lawyer: Scandal not as big a deal as reported
« Reply #28 on: August 14, 2015, 11:46:20 AM »

Leave it to an attorney to 'minimize' the "Scandal" ;D ;D ;D

http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2015/08/14/state-rep-cindy-gamrat-expected-clarify-role-sex-scandal/31711411/

I bet there is a bunch of that stuff going on all the time.  They just happened to get caught.


I wonder if her attorney specializes in 'legislative affairs' ;) ;) ;)


Her story sounds like the 'All American Girl'...

http://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/politics/2015/08/13/gamrat-profile/31681323/

If she just would have skipped the alliance (and obviously the dalliance) with Courser she probably would have been better off.  But maybe when her attorney gets done putting his spin on all this she'll be on the ticket as Trump's VP 8* 8* 8*
