Even though Inman played the opioid addiction card, the Michigan House still voted to tell him to quit.
I don’t have a problem with them telling Inman to resign. Either he’s completely guilty of what we all think he’s completely guilty of, or he is too addicted to opioids to be completely guilty of what he’s guilty of. So he shouldn’t be representing us.
My issue is that they’re being hypocrites. Inman’s tone was awfully casual in the texts. In addition, he referenced several others who might be willing to flip their votes in exchange for cash. So Inman’s actions look like they’re just a window into what appears to be the corrupt culture of the Michigan House. What I want to hear from the house is how they’re going to change the culture of this for that, cash above constituents.
