Former Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, R-Mich., described the charges brought Thursday in Michigan against four of his former campaign staffers in connection with submitting fake ballot petitions to get him on the ballot as "closure" for his family.
In a short statement, McCotter said: "I thank the Attorney General and his office for their earnest, thorough work on this investigation, which I requested, and their subsequent report."
"For my family and I, this closure commences our embrace of the enduring blessings of private life," he said.
The statement added that McCotter himself will not be available for interviews "at this stage of the legal process."
