Michigan: Signatures handed in for recall of Michigan State Representative

Petitioners handed in 13,991 signatures for the recall effort against Michigan State Representative Larry C. Inman (R). They need 12201 valids to get on the ballot.

Inman was indicted by a federal grand jury 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.

Inman's attorney has a strange argument that the recall petition is unconstitutional because it prejudices his trial.
