Michigan House members showered with fake million-dollar bills

Anti-corruption protesters shouted from the state House gallery today as they showered Michigan lawmakers with fake $1 million bills. The group Represent Us says Michigan has one of the worst records of government corruption in the nation.

Republican state Rep. Pete Lund (R-Shelby Twp.) says the protest was out of line.

“The idea of starting to throw things around, it’s just …  it’s arrogance thinking that they’re more important than everybody else," Lund said. "There’s a process in place. I assume, if they are from Michigan, they get a vote, they can talk to their representative.”

The protesters cited  State Integrity Investigation reporthat gave Michigan a failing grade for government corruption.
