Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said Thursday he was embarrassed by a viral video of him speaking suggestively to a female interviewer while he was a member of Congress nearly 30 years ago. In the 1989 video, Schuette, now the Republican nominee for governor, adjusted his tie and licked his lips as he spoke with an off-camera woman positioning him for an interview. “I will be happy to move closer to the lamp,” Schuette told her. “I will do anything you want. Some things I may not let you run the camera on.”
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette will enter the final month of his campaign for governor with his office arguing in court that Michiganders whom the state falsely accused of unemployment fraud aren’t entitled to damages.
