Former State Rep. Todd Courser blasted Attorney General Schuette after news broke regarding Schuette's secret luxury real estate empire, as well as the fact he used state employees on state time to help with multiple deals.
Courser says it's hypocritical.
"Hypocrisy Much This is Too Rich....I'm being prosecuted by Schuette for "misconduct in office" its MCL750.505 for supposedly asking a state employee who was off state time to send out a email that supposedly deceived taxpayers," Courser said in a Facebook statement..
"The Speaker of the State House said its not a crime because the employee was off state time, the House counsel said it was not a crime because the employee was off state time, the House Chief of Staff said it was not a crime because the employee was off state time, the House Business Office Director said it was not a crime because the employee was off state time, The Attorney General in Michigan Bill Schuette said it was a crime because he said it was and he said it as he uses his government staff secretly to conduct the review of documents and conduct a closing on a 7.2 million dollar Virgin Island Estate for himself personally and then he lies to the taxpayers about it? But some that is not a crime? Of course no one will prosecute him for it. Too Rich.."
Courser continues to fight the AG's office in court over the charges in a case that has gone on for over two years now.
I will say this... Imagine how the establishment would react if Courser and Gamrat used state employees to help with secret real estate deals while in their official office, AND on state time!? They'd go NUTS! The investigation would have already started! 💯 💯 💯
