Recall Against State Representative Can Move Forward

Jan 03, 2020

The Michigan Supreme Court ordered the recall petition against Representative Larry Inman (R-Williamsburg) is proper and therefor can move forward. A recall petition was approved and circulated in 2019 following his indictment by a federal grand jury for allegedly offering to trade a vote for a campaign donation. However, after the signatures were turned in to the State Bureau of Elections, they rejected the signatures due to what they saw as discrepancies in the language. The Court of Appeals agreed with the Bureau, stopping the recall from moving forward. However, the Michigan Supreme Court disagreed and reversed their decision.

Backers of the recall petition face another challenge, after the Bureau found they are approximately one hundred signatures short of the required number necessary to put the recall on the next ballot.

Representative Inman is serving his third term in the State House. Prior to that he served on the Grand Traverse County Commission for 22 years.
