A lengthy Michigan House session to consider the removal of Representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat ended early this morning, with Courser resigning his seat and Gamrat's ouster. Current State talks with reporters Chad Livengood and Rick Pluta about the proceedings.

The drama surrounding the removal of state Representatives Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat dragged through yesterday afternoon and into this morning as the lawmakers fought to keep their jobs. Courser and Gamrat were the central players in a sex-and-cover-up scandal that’s roiled the state Capitol for many weeks now.

During the overnight hours, Courser resigned and the state House voted to remove Gamrat from office.

Current State talks about their departures with Michigan Public Radio Network managing editor Rick Pluta, and Detroit News reporter Chad Livengood.
