Democrats blast Governor Snyder over office furniture purchase

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - You might have called it the seat of government.  Democrats brought a huge inflatable chair to the Capitol yesterday as a prop to repeat claims that Governor Rick Snyder is showing favoritism to his cousin through office furniture contracts. 

Democratic Party Chair Lon Johnson says instead of spending $41-million on new chairs for legislators and various office buildings around the capital, they should be spending it reducing the senior tax or increasing spending on education.  

A Snyder spokesperson dismissed it as more “air-thin rhetoric from Mark Schauer”.
