Michigan Democrats are alleging that Governor Rick Snyder’s cousin got preferential treatment in landing a $41 million furniture contract with the state in 2011, his first year in office. The party has filed a massive document, filled with internal emails inside the governor’s office with the U.S. Attorney in West Michigan calling for an investigation into what may be violation of federal laws. George Snyder is owner and president of Lansing-based DBI Business Interiors and Democrats say when he found out the state furniture contract was going to be capped at a million dollars he asked for help from one of the governor’s closest advisors. The Snyder administration has dismissed this as a manufactured issue based on emails that were “taken out of context” and as “absolutely false” the allegation of favoritism within the Snyder family.
