The Lapeer County Clerk's Office confirmed today that former representative Todd Courser is one of three candidates who've filed to run in the Republican primary. One of his opponents is incumbent Prosecutor Timothy Turkelson. 

Courser resigned his House seat in September as his colleagues were about to vote on expelling him. 

Courser and fellow lawmaker Cindy Gamrat were involved in a sex and cover-up scandal that rocked the state Capitol for weeks. 

Courser tried to regain his House seat in a special election and lost.

He has been charged with perjury and misconduct in office.

According to its website, his Lapeer law firm specializes in bankruptcy, tax, business law, elder law, trusts and estates, and debt negotiation.
