Could the Courser Gamrat soap opera is coming to an

|Cindy Gamrat Testifying|
After a 67-14 vote, with 26 Democrats refusing to vote and two Democrats absent, Republicans called for a reconsideration of the vote and the board was still open as of 9 p.m.
Cindy Gamrat said she worked out a deal that if she admitted wrong doing- which she did- that she would face censure not expulsion. Republican Speaker of the house Kevin Cotter is saying no deal was made. House Democrats do not believe Kevin Cotter and Cindy Gamrat’s attorney has given WXYZ 7 in Detroit a copy of the agreement.
