Michigan GOP Lawmakers Go To Court To Change Their Electoral Votes

This just in to CNN (no link)

Michigan Lawmakers who met with Trump just filed for a 2 week extension for vote AUDIT in a Democrat county to force it into legislation hands and then they can appoint their own votes.

Michigan GOP Lawmakers Go To Court To Change Their Electoral Votes

I don’t think Joycelyn Benson is going to fall for this nonsense. The GOP is just sowing dissent. It’s pathetic.

I’m sure Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is prepared to dismiss these certifiers and appoint new ones on Monday since she alone has the power to do so without any approval required from the legislature.

National and state Republicans have mounted a last-ditch effort to keep Michigan's Board of State Canvassers from certifying results from the presidential election.

In a letter sent Saturday, Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel and Michigan Republican Chair Laura Cox urged the board to adjourn for 14 days to allow a full audit and investigation so "numerical anomalies and credible reports of procedural irregularities" can be addressed.

"To simply gloss over these irregularities now without a thorough audit would only foster feelings of distrust among Michigan's electorate," the letter reads, echoing talking points from the Trump campaign. Republican U.S. Senate candidate John James also has requested a delay for similar reasons. The letter was first reported by MLive.com.

The latest effort to halt Michigan's election certification process comes after President Donald Trump seemingly failed to persuade Republican members of Michigan's legislature to help swing the state in his favor. After meeting with Trump at the White House on Friday, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield said they were unaware of any new information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan.

Democratic President-elect Joe Biden won Michigan by about 150,000 votes. The state is among a handful where the Trump campaign has filed legal challenges. It is scheduled to certify its results Monday.

Republican state canvasser Norm Shinkle told the Detroit News on Friday that he was considering throwing his support behind an audit or delay of the final certification after two Republican members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers unsuccessfully attempted to rescind their certification of the county’s results after learning an audit would not be conducted prior to state certification.

Shinkle said he couldn’t make a decision before seeing the Michigan Bureau of Elections report on the certifications from 83 counties. There are four members — two Democrats and two Republicans — on the Michigan State Board of Canvassers.

Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson said earlier this week that her agency would perform a post-election audit of Wayne County and some other local jurisdictions. But she said the audit could not be done before state results were certified because election officials don’t have legal access to the documents needed until then, according to the Detroit News.

A group of Michigan voters alleged in a lawsuit filed Friday in the D.C. federal court that challenges and pressure on election officials amounted to attempted mass voter suppression by the Trump campaign.

R9 If she did that, can you imagine the reaction from those terrorists that call themselves a militia?

R11 We don't have to because they already tried it before.

Nobody cares about those criminal thugs, R11.

The ones who already tried it are in jail. The ones who aren't in jail are under surveillance. If they fuck up, they'll join their friends in prison and the Governor will be fine.
