The Courser Option: Michigan Politicians Allegedly Orders Staffer To Accuse Him Of Sex With Male Prostitute To Conceal Affair With Fellow Politician

COURSER_0115_DSC4624-731x1024Michigan State Representative Todd Courser has an alleged bizarre way of spinning scandal. The conservative Republican ran on a religious right affiliation and was reportedly about to be implicated in an affair with another conservative lawmaker. According to a transcript released by Detroit News was to instruct his aide to implicate him in a sex scandal with a male prostitute. That’s right, it is better to be caught with a male prostitute than a fellow Republican legislator. It could be all part of Courser’s belief in what he calls “God inspired encouragers.”

GAMRAT_0115_DSC4054-681x1024According to The Detroit News, Courser told his aide Ben Graham to send out the bogus anonymous email filled with sensational details. It appears that once the scandal was disproved or blew over, his relationship with fellow state Rep. Cindy Gamrat would seem tame and unnewsworthy. Graham recorded the conversation with Courser who is married with children. Like Courser, Gamrat is a Tea-Party back candidate who is married with children.

Courser is quoted as reading the details for the fake email with the instructions that “You just get nasty about it.” The aide expresses shock and asks “Are you serious? … That’s ridiculous.” Courser is heard responding “I need it to be over the top.”

Graham says that when he refused to carry out the order, he was stripped of his duties and Courser fired him.

Family_With_Dog_800x600Courser describes a life of faith on his bio in the following way:

State Rep. Todd Courser was first elected to serve the 82nd District in the Michigan House of Representatives in November 2014. The 82nd District includes all of Lapeer County.

Rep. Courser was born in Flint, Michigan to Daniel and Georgeann Courser, who were married shortly after his birth. When he was 4, Courser was sent to a vacation bible school, which changed the course of their lives, as first his mother and then his father, found salvation in Jesus Christ. Shortly afterwards, his family moved to a small family farm in Lapeer, Michigan. Both of his parents had grown up in difficult family situations and wanted a different experience for their family.

Daniel and Georgeann Courser were not only loving and nurturing parents, but they were followers of Christ, which was reflected in their lifestyle. Although they did not have much money, they operated their home as a place for all who needed compassion and love. They did not receive any resources for this and had no government involvement. They acted selflessly, as loving, God inspired encouragers. Todd Courser grew up in this household, with his brother, his 2 sisters and however many lost souls found their way to the Courser doorstep. The family would feed them, mend them, wash them up a little spiritually and then watch them get their feet back under them as they would go back out into the world when the timing was right. Courser learned that money, accomplishments and positions that the world tends to value, were not as important as advancing God’s plans for him to do the right things for the right reasons.

Aside from the family farm, Courser grew up with his father’s meat business. His father considered savings to be 3 chest freezers full of meat in his view of the world at that time. His mother attended college, ran a daycare, cub scout dens, church events, attended her children’s sport events and worked nights as a waitress when needed to make the finances work. Courser does not remember ever living in a household without other people, who were not related, there.

The love and compassion that Courser’s parents emulated shaped the “religious” part of Courser, one of genuine faith.

Cindy_Head_shot_from_meetingFor her part, Gamrat also ran on her faith and commitment to God and family:

It has been an incredible and humbling journey over these last few years and would not have been possible without the hand of God, the love of my family, and the help from all those who have supported me.

Nothing worthwhile is ever easy but I believe together, and with God’s providence, we can conquer any rough or rocky areas that present themselves on the path between us and the precious gift of liberty.

What is most interesting is that Courser’s clever plan has drawn more attention to the scandal than would have occurred otherwise. It is certainly true that both would look like hypocrites in the eyes of their constituents. However, they would not be the first such politicians caught in affair. Courser however has added a bizarre twist that places both politicians in not only greater national exposure but a rather unhinged, desperate light.

Ironically, Courser was right in one respect. Few people are really that interested in the original affair.

  1. BarkinDog. This guy stated on the tape he was not gay. The ruse was to deflect from an affair with a female Republican.

  2. This guy is a Log Cabin Republican. There are many out there. Floating a rumor about himself and a male prostitute is a bit over the top. It is worse than having an affair for which he did not pay. Those who pay for sex may be smarter in some ways than those who trade for sex. I want The Donald to weigh in on this one.

  3. This criminal defrauded his family, constituents and the Republican Party.

    His family, constituents and the Republican party cannot be found culpable for his crime.

    Hillary Clinton, Rev. Wright, Barry Soetoro, Rev. Al Sharpton, Comrade “Bombing” Bill Ayers, Minister Louis Farrakhan, Lois Lerner, Bill Clinton and Bill Cosby are democrats in the Democrat Party.


    Here’s another democrat in the Democrat Party:

    “The father, grandfather and father-in-law of President Barack Obama’s senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were under investigation by the FBI for alleged Communist ties during the 1950s, according to new documents obtained by Judicial Watch. Jarrett’s dad, Dr. James Bowman, a pathologist and geneticist, had “extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals,” reports Judicial Watch, citing his lengthy FBI file obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.”


    “he said. ‘By August, I was a communist.'”

    How about Comrade Dear Leader Van Jones:

    “In a Nov. 2, 2005, profile of Jones in the East Bay Express , an alternative weekly in Berkeley, Calif., Jones said his life hit a turning point in the spring of 1992 when he was swept up in mass arrests while protesting the acquittal of police officers accused of beating Rodney King.

    Although the charges against Jones were dropped, Jones said that while in jail, “I met all these young radical people of color — I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of.’ I spent the next 10 years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary.”

    “In the months that followed,” the Express article said, “he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. ‘I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th,’ he said. ‘By August, I was a communist.'”

    In 1994, the story states, Jones formed a socialist collective called Standing Together to Organize a Revolutionary Movement, or STORM.

    According to a history of STORM written in the spring of 2004, the group held “structured political education” training at every meeting “to help members develop an understanding of the basics of Marxist politics.” They “trained members on capitalism and wage exploitation, the state and revolution, imperialism and the revolutionary party.”

  4. And yes, people were supposed to think the LGBT community “set him up”…

    @ Max

    Well, that was not cool, at all. We have enough real problems without this guy trying to manufacture problems and stir up bad feelings for his own purposes.

    His advisor, Graham, gave him some good advice.

    Once again. I don’t feel sorry for him at all. And there is a difference between not having any empathy/feeling sorry for for this guy (or the Clintons) and chortling about his obvious mental and moral issues. Taking pleasure in other people’s pain and suffering, whether it is self inflicted or not, is not a decent way to think.

  5. OMG, Max. I listened to the whole audio file. This guy seems to have cheated before and he planned on running for Congress! He called his fake story “inoculating the herd”. This is a devious sociopath.

    1. Bill Clinton ran for President and his wife Hillary was in charge of Bimbo eruptions. We all know how dumb the Democratic base is.


    Marriage – I believe in traditional marriage of one man and one woman which has been the backbone of our families and societies for hundreds of years. Although I would rather not see our government be involved in marriage, it is involved in many levels including social security, benefits, tax law, inheritance, etc and so as such is required to be defined. Millions of Michigan voters made it clear that they wanted marriage defined for legal purposes in our state as between one man and one woman when they overwhelmingly passed the Marriage Protection Amendment in 2004 to be made part of our State Constitution.

    Cindy may want to rethink this position…

  7. DBQ,
    The soundcloud link is Todd conspiring the whole thing.
    And yes, people were supposed to think the LGBT community “set him up”… Listen at 4:25 on.

  8. Max, you know it was Same Sex marriage that forced them to abandon their marital vows. Marriage is no longer what is used to be when it was meant for heterosexuals, because we know they elevated the institution of marriage and kept it holy for hundreds of years.

    (Extreme sarcasm)

  9. It has been an incredible and humbling journey over these last few years and would not have been possible without the hand of God…

    The hand of God did not make you break your vows, FYI. Or did it… ?

  10. But he was being framed by that Gay Mafia

    What? In what way was he framed. It says the he wanted to float this rumour about a gay prostitute, himself as a smoke screen for his real adulterous affair. Seems like he screwed himself.

    Again. I don’t feel sorry for him and am not suggesting than anyone else feel bad for him. He deserves to be removed from office as being unfit. Moral character failure.

    However, I don’t dance a happy dance around his pain and the pain of the families involved.

  11. DBQ hypocrisy alert starting at 1:37 PM.

    Sorry, but II must do it….hahahahahahaaah! Comedy gold, but sad that both families are probably destroyed. Family Values…..still chuckling.

    I guess DBQ just skipped over the bolded part of my early comment, in her rush to appear sympathetic, lol.

  12. DBQ,
    Correct, the other people in Todd and Cindy’s lives have to cope with being lied to.

  13. DBQ,
    But he was being framed by that Gay Mafia… His sorry ass. Not feeling it.
