Republican lawmaker indicted for trying to sell his vote [View all]

Michigan state representative Larry Inman allegedly sent text messages asking for campaign donations in return for his vote on a wage bill.

Michigan state representative Larry Inman (R), was indicted on Tuesday by a federal grand jury for bribery charges related to a scheme to sell his vote on a bill about wages.

According to the indictment, Inman sent text messages to a carpenter's union soliciting campaign donations in return for a promise to vote "no" on the repeal of a Michigan prevailing wage law.

"I hear the prevailing wage vote may be on Wednesday," Inman said in a June 2018 text message to the Michigan Regional Council of Carpenters and Millwrights. He added that while "carpenters have been good to me, where are the rest of the trades on checks?"

In subsequent texts, Inman tossed aside any attempt at subtly, saying, "it's not worth losing assignments and staff for $5,000," and "you need to get people maxed out."
