Michigan: Recall effort launched against State Representative indicted over bribery and extortion charges

The recall effort against Michigan State Representative Larry C. Inman (R) has started, though Inman's attorney has a strange argument that the recall petition is unconstitutional because it prejudicies his trial. Inman was indicted over attempted extortion, bribery and lying to the FBI continues, with the House voting 98-8 to call for his resignation. Inman is accused of trying to get a bribe from a union group for a vote to repeal the state's prevailing wage law. He has been prevented from going to his old office, though he is able to go onto the House floor. Inman blamed an opiod addiction.

Petitions are being collected and would need 12201 signatures in 60 days to get on the ballot.
