The legislators cite faulty software that initially caused thousands of Republican votes to be counted for Democrats in Michigan’s Antrim County. The result was supposedly rectified as the county’s clerk came forward, announcing that everything was okay and there was nothing to worry about.
“Every citizen deserves to have faith in the integrity of the election process and its outcome. It is our responsibility, as elected public servants, to assure the people of Michigan of the process’s integrity through complete transparency and the faithful investigation of any allegations of wrongdoing, fraud, or abuse.”
“As such, and due directly to these issues, we are requesting a full audit be conducted of the 2020 election general election prior to the certification of any results.”
Current election results have Biden leading in Michigan by approximately 140,000 votes. It would take a truly massive level of fraud for the results of the election to change as the result of an audit.
