Michigan Representative Todd Courser testified before the House committee Wednesday following a sex scandal that has disrupted politics in Lansing.

The special legislative committee convened Tuesday in Lansing to determine the future of Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat.

The pair could be censured or expelled if found guilty of misusing state resources after having an affair. 

During the hearing on Tuesday, Rep. Gamrat apologized and asked for censure as punishment for her misconduct in office. 

The hearing ran two days, right before the full House returns from recess. Fixing the roads also remains a high priority and many do not want this scandal to interfere with that discussion. 

A House Business Office investigation found both Courser and Gamrat participated in an affair, elaborate cover-up and lied to investigators. So far, both have refused to resign.

Also Tuesday, the full report on the investigation into the alleged misconduct by Courser and Gamrat was posted on the State House of Representatives website. You can read all 833 pages below:
