The Latest: Michigan leaders say probe appropriate next step

The leaders of Michigan's House say a police investigation into two lawmakers who had an extramarital affair and admitted to misconduct in attempting to cover it up is an appropriate next step.
Republican Speaker Kevin Cotter says in a statement Friday that the "serious findings of the House Business Office" are why the House wanted further investigation into the "behavior and antics of the representatives."
Michigan State Police plan to investigate potential criminal wrongdoing.
Rep. Todd Courser announced his resignation amid a marathon overnight session in the House over whether he and fellow GOP Rep. Cindy Gamrat should stay in their jobs. Gamrat was expelled an hour after Courser's resignation.

House Minority Leader Tim Greimel says "we are confident that there will finally be an independent investigation into this matter."
