LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Democratic legislative leaders are calling for Republican House Speaker Jase Bolger to relinquish the speakership following a report criticizing his role in a West Michigan House race.
Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth released a report Tuesday saying no charges would be filed after Bolger and state Rep. Roy Schmidt worked to have the Democratic lawmaker switch to the GOP primary just before the filing deadline and have 22-year-old Matthew Mojak run in the Democratic primary instead.
The Republican prosecutor said he was "offended" by the moves.
Mojak dropped out after questions were raised about where he lived.
Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer and some House Democrats said Wednesday that Bolger should step down as speaker.
The speaker's spokesman said Bolger has "no intention" of resigning.
