RNC chair urges MI board to pause certification of election results

Rep. Upton We need to get back to governing

The state Board of Canvassers is set to meet Monday where it could certify the results.

Though the MI lawmakers who met with Trump on Friday said that they "have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI", the Washington Post reports that the state's Attorney General Dana Nessel is exploring whether they could be charged with a crime if they participated in the president's attempt to interfere in the state's electoral process, a violation of state law.

On Friday, the NAACP Legal Defence Fund (LDF) filed a lawsuit on behalf of three Black women from Detroit who voted in this year's election and the Michigan Welfare Rights Organization, accusing Trump and his campaign of violating the Voting Rights Act by trying to interfere in the certification of votes from the state.

"Having lost the vote in MI and other states that are necessary for a majority of the electoral college, President Trump and the Donald J. Trump For President, Inc".

The suit alleges that the Trump's post-election efforts "repeat the worst abuses in our nation's history, as Black Americans were denied a voice in American democracy for most of the first two centuries of the Republic".

With President Donald Trump attempting to overturn the election results in the state of MI, a local organization has filed a lawsuit against the president.


The Michigan Republican Party and the Republican National Committee on Saturday demanded that Michigan delay certifying the victory of presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden, saying the state should conduct an audit of votes in the Detroit area. MI just refused to certify the election results! "Repeating false claims of voter fraud, which have been thoroughly debunked, Defendants are pressuring state and local officials in Michigan not to count votes from Wayne County, Michigan (where Detroit is the county seat), and thereby disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of voters".

Trump is Shinkle's preferred candidate.

Julie Matuzak, a Democrat state canvasser and Macomb County Commissioner, is a retired political coordinator for the American Federation of Teachers' Michigan branch.

Aaron Van Langevelde, a Republican state canvasser, was the Branch County assistant prosecutor before becoming an attorney for the House Republican Caucus.

John Pirich, a veteran of state election law and adjunct faculty member at the Michigan State University College of Law, says, "Auditing the election is not within its scope of duties; the board is only responsible for reviewing the vote calculations and signing them".
