LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan legislative committee is holding rare disciplinary hearings for two lawmakers who are accused of misusing public resources to hide an extramarital affair.

The special six-member panel will convene for the first time Tuesday at the Capitol to adopt rules and procedures. The House Business Office released a summary report Monday alleging that Republican Reps. Todd Courser and Cindy Gamrat were dishonest and violated House rules and Michigan’s campaign-finance law.

The report urged further investigation by the committee, which could recommend discipline, including expulsion by the full House.

Courser says Republican House Speaker Kevin Cotter “hand-picked” evidence that Courser has not been allowed to see and that will be presented to a “hand-picked” committee. Gamrat has not commented on the findings.

The hearings could last for weeks.
