LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court is taking a look at the scandal that ended the career of a Detroit-area congressman.

The court has accepted an appeal from the attorney general’s office in the criminal case against an aide to Thad McCotter. The Livonia Republican was scratched from the ballot in 2012 when many petition signatures turned out to be bogus.

McCotter wasn’t charged. But two high-ranking aides, Don Yowchuang (yow-CHANG’) and Paul Seewald, were placed on probation by a Wayne County judge.

The attorney general’s office is appealing the dismissal of conspiracy charges against the men.

The Supreme Court is taking an appeal in the Seewald case, but any decision would likely affect Yowchuang, too.
